A Multicenter “Ablate and Resect” Study of Novilase Interstitial Laser Therapy for the Ablation of Small Breast Cancers
The purpose of the research is to study and report the effects of Novilase breast therapy for small breast cancers. This is a multicenter feasibility study in which approximately 60 women with small breast cancers will undergo the ablation procedure prior to surgical excision of their breast cancers. The ablation procedure takes place in an outpatient setting, and is typically completed in 30-60 minutes.
