Prostate Cancer Facts:
The quality of a HIFU doctor is not measured by how many procedures he has done, but by the outcome of each procedure. Before selecting a HIFU doctor, make sure you ask the doctor for his HIFU cure success rate. HIFU for Prostate Cancer uses ultrasound to destroy prostate cancer cells. This is the same technology used to view babies in the womb & is considered harmless to the human body. By focusing ultrasound into a single beam onto the cancerous cells, the HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) procedure elevates the temperature of these cancerous prostate cells beyond a sustainable level. Thus the cancerous prostate cells die. HIFU for prostate cancer is considered minimally invasive and performed as an outpatient procedure. HIFU is an approved prostate cancer treatment procedure in many countries, including Germany and Japan. Currently the FDA has this procedure approved only for clinical trial studies. As such, individuals seeking this procedure will have to travel to one of the treatment hospitals outside of the U.S.
