NC HIFU is a cutting-edge new treatment for men who have been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and are seeking alternative treatments. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary and minimally invasive urology procedure used to fight and remove prostate cancer with almost no side effects or inpatient hospital stays.
As 21st Century medical technology improves, healthcare is more and more working with less invasive procedures that eschew the expensive cost of overnight hospital stays and negative side effects of trauma, risks and pain that come with surgery. The new HIFU procedure uses Sonablate® ultrasound technology that removes cancerous cells in the male prostate without a single incision or scalpel, affecting only the unhealthy tissue.
