Sanarus is committed to women's health.
We offer a new option in breast tumor therapy. Breast tumors, cancerous and non-cancerous, are a serious health issue that women face today. As you consider your options, our objective is to provide you with the information and education you need to make an informed decision on your choice of care. Cryoablation is a procedure that is minimally invasive and can be completed in your doctor's office as an outpatient procedure. It is an alternative to surgical lumpectomy and a procedure whereby a probe is inserted into the breast and is ultrasound guided into the tumor. Using liquid nitrogen, an ice ball is formed around the tumor, freezing it and destroying it.
Sanarus has received FDA clearance for cryoablation of benign breast tumors called fibroadenomas (fih-bro-ad-in-oh-ma). Fibroadenomas are the most common type of solid breast tumor affecting 10% of all women1. Whether discovered through a self-breast examination or routine mammogram, many women request surgical excision of the benign tumor after consultation with their physician. Now women have a new option to treat benign lesions with a minimally invasive alternative to surgical lumpectomy.

Cryoablation may also be an option for cancerous or malignant tumors. Sanarus is currently conducting clinical trials to obtain FDA clearance for cryoablation for the treatment of malignant breast tumors. The most recent study has started in the U.S. and is being led by Dennis R. Holmes, M.D.
