Kovai Medical Center and Hospital (KMCH) inaugurated a new treatment option for cancer. The treatment involves taking a needle under ultrasound or CT scan guidance into the centre of the tumour and destroying the tumour cells by freezing it with liquid nitrogen in a closed loop system.

Around the world, icecure has treated cancer in the kidney, lungs, and , liver, and several other types of cancer. 
This equipment was launched at the KMCH on May 9 by Mrs Tammy Ben Haim, Consulate General of Israel. She has served in the Israeli foreign service for 18 years and has been in the civil service for 25 years. 
Dr Subramaniam, Chief of Radiation Oncology, mentioned KMCH is a pioneer and trendsetters in cancer care in this region. 
Dr Bharat Rangarajan from the Medical Oncology Division said “It is futuristic, and we will help several patients, especially the early cancer.” 
Dr. Nalla  G. Palaniswami, Chairman and Managing Director of KMCH said that they were keen to invest in any technology that would bring new hope, especially in cancer. 
Dr Arun Palaniswami, Executive Director of KMCH informed KMCH could offer treatment options which is in no way inferior to what he has experienced in the United States.
Dr Matthew Cherian, Chief of Radiology Services, mentioned that Dr Rupa Renganathan, Lead Consultant of breast Breast Imaging, would use the equipment exclusively to treat early breast cancer. 
Dr Venkatesh and Dr Sreman, lead consultants in abdominal and onco- imaging and interventions, will use this technology to treat cancer in other body parts.
