For some patients with small tumors (smaller than three centimeters) on the outer border of the kidney, cryoablation may be a valuable treatment option. Laparoscopy is used to reach the tumor on the surface of the kidney. Under laparoscopy and ultrasound control, the tumor is frozen, eventually killing the tumor cells. An overnight stay in the hospital is needed.
