Nanoknife - the first case

28 Feb 2013

The first case of Nanoknife treatment for prostate cancer was performed in late February. Dr Stricker said he was pleased with the outcome and welcomed a leading edge surgical technology that would allow yet another option when tailoring treatments for patients. In particular, he felt that that the Nanoknife procedure coould help minimise side-effects. Nanoknife is a new technology designed for precise and effective surgical ablation.
