The Wisconsin Idea in Action

Tumor Ablation Program

The tumor ablation program is a group of engineers working with world-leading clinicians to develop minimally invasive therapies for cancer. By providing options to patients for whom surgery, radiation or chemotherapy fail, the project has helped improve the health and quality of life for thousands of individuals treated at UWHC and other clinics statewide. Engineers have also expanded their reach by translating UW-conceived ideas into commercial products, most recently through the spin-off company NeuWave Medical. The economic impact of NeuWave has been substantial, with over $30M in grant funding and private equity investment being put back into Wisconsin's economy as new jobs, local materials sourcing and local manufacturing.
