NanoKnife (IRE) for localised prostate cancer

Prof Stricker’s unit at St Vincent’s and the Kinghorn Cancer Centre has been appointed the Asia-Pacific region training centre for NanoKnife therapy.

Professor Stricker’s team at St Vincent’s Hospital has now been appointed as the Asia-Pacific region training site for the development of NanoKnife treatments. Stricker and his team have now performed over 200 cases. During this period they have published over seven international peer-reviewed publications on these treatment which included complete oncological and quality of life follow up research.

They are now commencing a full training programme to help set up other units throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. This training programme will incorporate  patient selection, best practice treatment and followup and collective data management.  Furthermore, Prof Stricker envisages that this will allow further research
