Kill the Cancer.
What is Focal HIFU?
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a form of ablation that uses energy from high-frequency sound waves to destroy cancer cells.
Focal HIFU is the latest innovation in this technology, allowing the treatment to be very precise, zeroing in on just the cancerous tumor.
This state of the art technology results in fewer side effects by selectively destroying the cancer cells within the prostate while leaving the healthy areas of the prostate intact and functional.
The expert physicians at Maimonides are leading the way with the most advanced technology on the East Coast.
Fewer Side Effects.
Personalized Treatment at the Maimonides Prostate Center
We offer a range of innovative treatment options for prostate cancer, working to limit or avoid side effects. Our team takes the time to listen and offers personalized solutions that address your specific issues. Your care plan may include one or more of these therapies:
We are the first center on the East Coast to offer the next generation focal HIFU for gland-sparing treatment — the world’s most advanced noninvasive ablation device for prostate cancer. This treatment targets only the cancerous part of the prostate, sparing the rest of the healthy gland.
Our specialists use minimally-invasive, robotic technology to surgically remove the prostate. This advanced technology enhances precision and leads to better outcomes. Learn about prostatectomy.
We offer several different radiation therapies, including internal radiation (brachytherapy) and external beam radiation, including 3D conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). We’re among a few centers nationwide offering an injectable form of radiation to treat prostate cancer that has spread to bones.
These options include androgen deprivation (hormone) therapy and chemotherapy. We also offer immunotherapy for cancer that has spread to other parts of the body and doesn’t respond to other treatments. Learn about these therapies.
