Focal HIFU Changes the Management of Prostate Cancer



Focal HIFU Changes the Management of Prostate Cancer 060716 HIFU915

This is a short clip by Dr. Herb Riemenschneider and Dr. John Jurige about Prostate Cancer, the second leading cause of malignant death in men. The latest treatment for prostate cancer; HIFU, short for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is the focusing of high intensity sound waves to create heat at a specific point, called the focal point. With state-of-the-art technology, HIFU can be used to destroy targeted tissue eliminating the cancer yet leaving the organ in place. Much like lumpectomy does for women in treating breast cancer. With HIFU you avoid radical surgery and its complications. This minimally invasive treatment allows you to heal quickly and return to normal activities in about a week.
