We use an innovative surgical technique called ERBEJET® 2 for cancers of the liver, kidney, brain and prostate.
Instead of a needle, ERBEJET2 uses a high pressure water jet to selectively target and dissect water-soluble tissue, and provide precise, intact margins along the line of dissection.
Advantages of ERBEJET
- Because of its precision and anatomic visibility, this technique helps to spare critical structures, like blood vessels, nerves and ducts.
- The preservation of tissues and structures helps to minimize the potential for blood loss.
- ERBEJET2 uses gentle pressure rather than intense heat, which helps to reduce trauma to surrounding healthy tissue.
- ERBEJET2 can be used in both open and laparoscopic surgical procedures, with shorter operating times.
