Purpose of Study 

The NeuroBlate® System (NBS) is a minimally invasive robotic laser thermotherapy tool that is being manufactured by Monteris Medical. Since it received FDA clearance in April 2013, the NBS has been used in over 300 procedures conducted at approximately 20 leading institutions across United States. This is a prospective, multi-center registry that will include data collection up to 12 months to evaluate procedural success, local control failure rate, and QoL in up to 1,000 patients and up to 50 sites.
