Ablation treatment for cancer at Spire Southampton

Spire Southampton is the partner of choice for Cancer Ablation UK, leading providers of precision tumour ablation.

Ablation is a fast, effective and incisionless treatment

Ablation is the process whereby fine needles are passed through the skin directly into a tumour mass. Heat or cold energy is then applied to destroy the cancer. Ablation is particularly useful in treating small volume cancers of the kidney, liver, lung and bone.

Ablation is a fast, effective and incisionless treatment, thus delivering a very quick recovery time and return to work or normal daily living. 25% of patients who have had cancer ablation require no pain relief after the procedure.

Dr David Breen is widely regarded as one of the pioneers of this treatment and has a worldwide reputation in this field. He has the largest case series of kidney cancer cryoablations in the whole of Europe. The National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) advised in 2011 that Cryotherapy for kidney cancers could be offered routinely as a treatment option.
