Paul Laeseke MD, PhD and Gloria Hwang MD, use microwave ablation technology to destroy larger tumors, and tumors that lie near blood vessels.

Microwave Ablation Used To Treat Cancer Quickly at Stanford
Gwen McCane was told the tumors in her liver were inoperable and incurable. The tumors were small, but so deep inside her liver (the body's largest organ) and so rich with blood vessels, that any surgery would be tricky. At Stanford, Dr. Gloria Hwang gave McCane hope. Using microwave ablation, she made a small incision and, guided by imaging, found the tumors and applied microwave heat to destroy them. Gwen McCane was able to go home the next day.
