Targeted treatment for prostate diseases without cutting, radiation, or hormones
What is the Sonablate® HIFU Procedure?
We understand that no prostate is the same. The Sonablate® HIFU procedure provides a minimally invasive, customizable treatment option for prostate diseases. Utilizing high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), Sonablate ablates targeted prostate tissue while leaving surrounding healthy tissue unharmed.
Customizable Procedure to Meet your Needs
The Sonablate® HIFU procedure begins with an ultrasound trans-rectal probe being inserted into the patient.
The physician, using ultrasound, will then begin to map out the zones of the prostate gland to be treated with the HIFU energy.
Once planning is complete, the HIFU energy will begin to create small lesions (about the size of a grain of rice) in the prostate.
Why Choose HIFU?
Minimally-invasive, radiation-free procedure
Customizable procedure, targeting only the affected prostate tissue
Low side effects compared to traditional surgical options
Same day, outpatient procedure
Resume normal lifestyle within days
A Patient's Perspective...
"My decision to use HIFU was researched over a two-year period and confirmed as a good decision by my urologist. It turns out to have been one of the best decisions of my life.“
