SAN DIEGO, May 10, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Doctor Adrian Santana, a neurosurgeon at the main public hospital in Guadalajara, Mexico, successfully treated a large sacral plasmacytoma using the MedWaves AveCure Microwave Ablation (MWA) system, developed and manufactured in San Diego, CA, to relieve pain, restore urinary function, and walking in a month. Microwave energy was applied to the highly vascular tumor using a minimally invasive surgical technique with an MWA system, C-arm, and microscope. The patient continued to recover without chemo and radiation therapy, and MRI at the four-month follow-up showed complete tumor destruction.
