One of the newest tools we have to treat tumors is the NanoKnife®.  I am the first surgeon in Colorado to use NanoKnife® in resection for cure of cholangiocarcinoma of the liver.   This form of ablation is used to destroy cells in tumors near senstive veins or arteries that could not be resected (cut away) or ablated using other methods such as radiofrequency or cryo ablation.   Based on my experience since being one of the first surgeons trained to use it, is that is indeed does provide more viable options for patients.
