HIFU The Latest Trend for the Management of Prostate Cancer 042612 HIFU908

This video was originally produced in 2012 and at that time HIFU was in its research mode, which Dr. Herb Riemenschneider participated in.  The great news is that it is now FDA approved and available at Riverside Urology and Knightsbridge Surgery Center in Columbus, Ohio.

In this clip Dr. Herb discusses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU. He demonstrates the Sonablate 500 equipment and explains how the technology is similar to the principles of using a magnifying glass on a sunny day to ignite a leaf. Using visual aids he explains the capabilities of HIFU that differ from other treatments for prostate cancer. For the right patient HIFU treatment can eliminate the cancer without the negative side effects such as urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction (ED) which are common with other treatments. HIFU patients also experience a very rapid recovery. You may eat dinner with your family at home or in a restaurant the evening of the day of surgery.
