OG exemplary drawing
 
1. A system comprising:
a) a first component comprising a microwave energy source and a coolant source comprising a coolant;
b) a second component for delivering microwave energy and the coolant from the first component, wherein said second component is separate from said first component;
c) one or more procedure device hub-energy delivery device cables;
d) a procedure device hub configured to receive the microwave energy and the coolant from the second component,
said procedure device hub comprising
a plurality of connection ports for attachment of the one or more procedure device hub-energy delivery device cables, wherein the one or more procedure device hub-energy delivery device cables connect said procedure device hub with an energy delivery device, wherein the energy delivery device has an exterior and an interior, wherein the one or more procedure device hub-energy delivery device cables are configured to deliver the microwave energy and the coolant from the procedure device hub to the interior of the energy delivery device,
wherein said procedure device hub is configured to perform adjustments of said delivery of said microwave energy and said coolant, wherein said adjustments comprise turning on said energy delivery device, turning off said energy delivery device, calibrating a timing of the delivery of said microwave energy and said coolant to said energy delivery device for purposes of avoiding undesired tissue heating during use of said energy delivery device, and calibrating a delivery amount of said microwave energy and said coolant to said energy delivery device for purposes of avoiding undesired tissue heating during use of said energy delivery device,
wherein said procedure device hub is separate from said energy delivery device,
wherein said procedure device hub is separate from said second component, wherein the second component comprises one or more cables connecting the first component with the procedure device hub,
wherein said procedure device hub is separate from said first component,
e) a processor comprising an algorithm, wherein the processor is configured to communicate with the procedure device hub, wherein the algorithm is configured to direct said procedure device hub to perform said adjustments of said delivery of said microwave energy and said coolant.
