Treating Liver Tumors with Sound Waves

Histotripsy is an innovative, non-invasive treatment for liver tumors that uses a robotic machine to target and destroy cancer tissue with ultra-precise sound waves. It’s a powerful tool for doctors to treat certain tumors without any needles, radiation or surgery, even allowing most patients to go home the same day.

The University of Chicago Medicine has been involved for years in bringing histotripsy technology to patients, including conducting some of the earliest clinical trials and being among the first medical systems in the country to offer the treatment following FDA approval. As early adopters, our doctors have deep expertise with the procedure, allowing them to deliver the highest level of care.
