Our Physicians

Disclaimer 

We have several academic physicians from leading medical centers who are among our panel of HIFU Physicians. None of them are affiliated with HIFU Solution and they will provide consultation for patients with no conflict of interest. Most of these physicians have done HIFU for Prostate Cancer and continue to evaluate the technology. We want to make sure that patients understand that not all of them will agree to do HIFU in every case of newly diagnosed prostate cancer or radiation failure. Their opinions are backed by years of experience and review of clinical trials. If a patient contacts them the decision to do HIFU, radical surgery or other treatment for that particular patient will be decided on an individual, personalized analysis of his particular cancer and all the workup related to it. 

Our HIFU Solution qualified physicians are backed by years of experience in treating prostate cancer and extensive training by expert HIFU Urologists. Our Physicians also perform comprehensive prostate testing using the latest technology, including genetic tests and biomarkers, and newer scans to predict patient risk and survival long term. Experience the HIFU Solution difference. We combine compassionate professionals and innovative noninvasive HIFU technology for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer to provide unparalleled patient care.
