Kill The Cancer.
Your Prostate.

Maimonides is the FIRST and ONLY Medical Center on the East Coast to offer the next generation Focal HIFU treatment.

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.

Focal HIFU technology allows for more precise ablation of cancer cells while keeping surrounding healthy tissue intact.

Personalized Treatment at the
Maimonides Prostate Center

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.

Our experts participate in national clinical trials to investigate new treatment options for prostate cancer. You may be eligible for an alternative therapy to treat the cancer or relieve treatment side effects. Read about cancer clinical trials.
