NeuroBlate® Procedure

NeuroBlate is a minimally invasive surgical tool that uses robotic control, directional laser technology, real-time MRI-thermometry, and proprietary NeuroBlate Fusion™ Software to enable the neurosurgeon to precisely ablate lesions in the brain.


Prior to the procedure, the surgeon plans the surgical approach with their preferred stereotactic platform and places the Mini-Bolt on-trajectory. Then, based on the intended ablation location and size, the surgeon chooses either the NeuroBlate SideFire® directional probe or FullFire® diffusing tip probe.


The patient’s head remains stabilized and is then moved to the diagnostic MRI using the AtamA® Patient Board. Alternatively, an intra-operative MRI can be used.


The surgeon places the probe through the Mini-Bolt and uses the system to robotically deliver laser energy to the intended lesion. Under MRI-guidance, the ablation is monitored throughout the procedure using TruTemp™ Technology. If deemed necessary, more than one trajectory can be done with a single laser probe.


NeuroBlate is a minimally invasive procedure. Minimally invasive procedures are generally well tolerated, have a short recovery time and patients go home with 1-2 stitches.

Monteris provides technology for neurosurgeons, which allows them to ablate (destroy with heat), brain structures such as brain tumors, radiation necrosis, and epileptic foci. Monteris technology includes the NeuroBlate System, AtamA, and MiniBolt devices, which may be used together to apply the focused laser energy with little or no effect on surrounding healthy tissue. The NeuroBlate System provides clinicians a tool that offers near real-time control and MRI visualization of the therapy during laser ablation treatment.

All brain surgeries carry risk. Possible adverse events include, but are not limited to, hematoma, embolic events, edema, bleeding, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leakage, infection, unintended major tissue damage and permanent neurological deficits. Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions for Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and potential adverse events.
