Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy (RFA)

About

Radiofrequency Ablation Therapy (RFA) is performed in conjunction with an upper endoscopy procedure and is recommended for patients with confirmed high-grade dysplasia (advanced pre-cancerous cells). The pre-cancerous tissue is heated to destroy the diseased tissue in a highly controlled manner. The preparation is similar to having an upper endoscopy procedure (EGD).
