We are always excited to share news about cutting edge treatments for canine osteosarcoma and other limb cancers. Especially those proving successful as an alternative to amputation. So, today we’re thrilled to learn about Histotripsy. That’s a new non-invasive tumor treatment currently in clinical trial at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.
And, we have assistant professor and board certified surgical oncologist Dr. Joanne Tuohy to tell us all about it. Dr. Joanne Tuohy is a board-certified veterinary surgeon with a background in integrative cancer care and translational research. She holds a Ph.D. in comparative biomedical sciences (immunology) and is an assistant professor of surgical oncology at the Animal Cancer Care and Research Center in the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.
Histotripsy is a tumor oblation technique that uses ultrasound technology but does not require any heat. As of this recording date (March 10 , 2022) Histotripsy treatment is currently only available in the clinical trials listed below.
