CINCINNATI BREAST SURGEONS:
THE FIRST IN THE AREA TO OFFER CRYOABLATION FOR FIBROADENOMAS
USING THE ICESENSE 3 SYSTEM
Karen Columbus, MD, Lydia Hernandez, MD and Dianne Runk, MD (the physicians of Cincinnati Breast Surgeons, Inc.) are excited to offer cryoablation as an alternative to surgical removal of certain benign breast lumps (fibroadenoma).
Cryoablation is an FDA-improved treatment for destroying fibroadenomas, and is an alernative to open surgery. It is the use of extreme cold to completely destroy tissue. Cryoablation technology is an established, effective therapy that has been used for decades to destroy benign and cancerous tumors in prostate, liver and other organs. The technology and procedure has beenoptimized for breast fibroadenomas.
Fibroadenomas are the most common type of breast tumor (lump). They are solid masses, have clearly defined edges and are typically round or oval in shape. They are non-cancerous (benign) that may increase in size over time, particularly with hormonal changes.
