Non-Invasive Prostate Cancer Treatme
Find out if you qualify for HIFU

Non-invasive HIFU for prostate cancer preserves quality of life. 

HIFU: The Basics

HIFU, which stands for high intensity focused ultrasound,  is a method of focusing sound waves to create heat at a specific point away from the energy source; this point is called the "focal point."  

Over 13,000 men worldwide have chosen Sonablate HIFU for their prostate disease.  Here are a few reasons why HIFU may be right for you too.

HIFU heats and destroys tissue in the prostate

When HIFU energy is delivered to a specific location within the body, the tissue temperature at the focal point is elevated to nearly 195 degrees Fahrenheit in a matter of seconds, resulting in tissue destruction, while the tissue outside the focal point remains unharmed.


HIFU was approved by FDA for
prostate ablation in October 2015.

HIFU has similar rates of efficacy as other treatment options for prostate cancer with a lower risk of erectile dysfunction and incontinence. Additionally, HIFU does not preclude other treatment options and it can be used as a salvage treatment if other treatments, such as surgery or radiation, have failed and the cancer has returned.  

After HIFU, men usually return

to their normal lifestyle within a few days

and the procedure can be repeated if necessary.
