What is claimed is:

1. A guide for elongate medical instruments comprising:
a pair of cooperating members movable with respect to each other, each member having a receiving channel configured and dimensioned to receive one of said elongate medical instruments;
wherein the receiving channels are parallel to one another.

2. The guide of claim 1 , wherein the pair of cooperating members are slidable with respect to each other.

3. The guide of claim 1, wherein each of the cooperating members comprises a slot that receives a portion of the other cooperating member.

4. The guide of claim 1 , wherein the pair of cooperating members comprises (1) a first cooperating member with a slot formed therein and (2) a second cooperating member with a portion configured and dimensioned to be received in the slot.

5. The guide of claim 1 , wherein the pair of cooperating members are selectively lockable with respect to each other to resist relative movement.

6. The guide of claim 1, wherein each member further comprises a clamping surface coupled thereto for retaining the one of said elongate medical instruments in the receiving channel.

7. The guide of claim 1, wherein each clamping surface is resiliently biased against the member.

8. The guide of claim 1, further comprising indicia for indicating separation distance between the receiving channels of the members.

9. The guide of claim 1, wherein the indicia comprises (1) a scale on a first of the cooperating members and (2) additional indicia on a second of the cooperating members alignable with the scale.

10. The guide of claim 1 , wherein the pair of cooperating members are releasably secured to each other.

11. A guide for elongate medical instruments comprising:
a pair of cooperating members, each member including a portion slidably received in a slot in the other member, each member having a receiving channel configured and dimensioned to receive one of said elongate medical instruments and a clamping surface coupled to the member for retaining the one of said elongate medical instruments in the receiving channel;
indicia for indicating separation distance between portions of the members;
wherein the receiving channels have a fixed parallel orientation with respect to one another.

12. The guide of claim 11, wherein the pair of cooperating members are selectively lockable with respect to each other to resist relative movement.

13. The guide of claim 11 , wherein each clamping surface is resiliently biased against the member.

14. The guide of claim 11, wherein the indicia comprises (1) a scale on a first of the cooperating members and (2) additional indicia on a second of the cooperating members alignable with the scale.

15. A method of guiding elongate medical instruments into a patient using a guide comprising a pair of cooperating members that each define a region for receiving one of said instruments, the regions having a fixed parallel orientation with respect to one another, the method comprising:
selectively adjusting the cooperating members so that the regions are disposed at a desired spacing with respect to each other;
guiding a first of said instruments into the patient through a first of the regions of the guide;
guiding a second of said instruments into the patient through a second of the regions of the guide so that the instruments are inserted into the patient parallel to one another.

16. The method of claim 15, further comprising:
releasably securing the first of said instruments to the guide.

17. The method of claim 15, further comprising:
selectively readjusting the cooperating members so that the regions are disposed at another desired spacing with respect to each other;
retaining one of said first and second of said instruments in one of the regions and guiding a third of said instruments into the patient through the other of the regions so that each of the instruments are inserted into the patient parallel to one another.

18. The method of claim 17, wherein the instruments are all disposed in a straight line.

19. The method of claim 17, wherein two of said instruments are disposed equidistant from the other of said instruments.

20. The method of claim 17, wherein the second and third of said instruments are disposed equidistant from the first of said instruments.

21. The method of claim 17, wherein a plurality of said instruments are guided into the patient through the guide to be spaced equidistant from one of said instruments and disposed radially with respect to the one of said instruments.

22. The method of claim 17, wherein the instruments are cryoprobes.

23. The method of claim 17, wherein the instruments are needles.

24. A method of guiding elongate medical instruments into a patient using a guide comprising a plurality of openings having a fixed parallel orientation with respect to one another, the method comprising:
guiding a first of said instruments into the patient;
placing the guide so that the first of said instruments extends through a first of the openings;
guiding a second of said instruments into the patient through a second of the openings so that the instruments are inserted into the patient parallel to one another.

25. The method of claim 24, wherein the guide comprises a pair of cooperating members and the method further comprises selectively adjusting the cooperating members so that the openings in the members are disposed at a desired spacing with respect to each other.

26. The method of claim 24, wherein the guide comprises a pair of cooperating members that each define at least one of said openings for receiving one of said instruments.

27. The method of claim 24, wherein the first of said openings comprises a slot extending from a perimeter of the guide.

28. The method of claim 24, wherein the first of said openings comprises a central hole in the guide.

29. The method of claim 24, further comprising:
coupling a plug to the first of said instruments;
demountably coupling the plug in the first of the openings.

30. The method of claim 24, further comprising:
guiding a third of said instruments into the patient through a third of the openings so that the instruments are inserted into the patient parallel to one another.

31. The meth d of claim 30, wherein the instruments are all disposed in a straight line.

32. The method of claim 30, wherein two of said instruments are disposed equidistant from the other of said instruments.

33. The method of claim 30, wherein the second and third of said instruments are disposed equidistant from the first of said instruments.

34. The method of claim 30, wherein a plurality of said instruments are guided into the patient through the guide to be spaced equidistant from one of said instruments and disposed radially with respect to the one of said instruments.

35. The method of claim 30, wherein the instruments are cryoprobes.

36. The method of claim 30, wherein the instruments are needles.
