he is my hipex surgeon, he also makes rfa devices in his spare time.

in the liver they do up to 7 centimeter.

an option besides rfa is tace to the lung, its only done in germnay by professor vogel to my knowledge.

I know a few who had lung tace , I myself, limited side effects, and good control. that said my lung met still had an suv 0.5 down from 1.1 a year ago.

I don't know who is the best regarding rfa, but prof morris was on tv last night, its nice to know your doctors are famous and well regarded. 

rfa is interesting, I need to do more research, but I just figured this doc is good, any day now I might get the call, I wonder if he will rfa the lung met and my liver met.

since you asked, for dispersed lung disease I beleive dendritic cell vaccine with new castle vaccine virus offers the best results per doctor nesslehut, of course he delivers the service and its not proven by a clinical trial.

hugs,

Pete

ps great question, I saw the rfa device , looks amazing.
