How Does it Work?

The NanoKnife System reimagines localized therapy through its unique mechanism of action, improving precision, expanding versatility, and increasing preservation – giving you the control to tailor treatments with confidence.


The procedure is performed percutaneously. Before the procedure begins, you will be sedated and remain sedated until the procedure is complete.

During the procedure, your physician will place the electrodes to bracket the targeted tissue. The number of electrodes used can range from 2 to 6, which is determined by your physician before treatment.

Once the electrodes are placed, your physician will initiate a series of electrical pulses. After your physician has delivered a sufficient number of pulses to the targeted area, the procedure is complete, and the electrodes are removed.


The procedure typically takes around 45 minutes to complete.


Patients will be able to return home the same day as their procedure. A catheter is required for up to a week. Once it is removed, your urine should be able to pass easily and you should have good bladder control straight away. You may also resume sexual activity once the catheter is removed.

It is recommended for patients to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for at least a week. After 3 to 4 weeks, patients will undergo an MRI scan to confirm that the cancer is gone and that there is nothing remaining.

Effective symptom relief with minimally invasive and low risk treatments.


The NanoKnife System has a relatively low risk of serious complications and the side effects are generally mild and infrequent. Some potential risks can include:

  • Small amounts of blood and seminal fluid in your urine, caused by your tumor breaking down and being passed out of your body
  • Increased risk of contracting a urinary tract infection (due to catheter)
  • Small risk of decreased/absent ejaculatory fluid which could affect your fertility
  • A very small risk of erectile dysfunction issues
