World’s Most Advanced Non-Surgical High Intensity Frequency Ultrasound Treatment (HIFU) for Prostate Cancer

Excellent Outcomes and Affordable Cost is assured.

Non Surgical HIFU

HIFU is a revolutionary new treatment for the early stage Prostate Cancer where the disease is still organ confined and it is possible to treat that cancer without radiation and without having to make a surgical incision in the body.

HIFU is a short form for high intensity focused ultrasound; it is focusing of high intensity sound waves to create heat at a specific point, called the focal point. With state-of-the-art technology, HIFU can be used to destroy targeted tissue during a procedure that is individually customized for each patient’s prostate cancer treatment. When HIFU energy is delivered to a specific location within the body, the tissue that is malignant or desired to be removed is destructed, while the tissue outside the focal point remains unharmed.

About HIFU

HIFU

HIFU

HIFU treatment uses high frequency ultrasound energy to heat and destroy cancer cells in your prostate gland.

When high frequency sound waves are concentrated on body tissues, those tissues heat up and die. To use this as a cancer treatment, the specialist targets the area containing the cancer.

HIFU is a great advancement over other prostate cancer treatment options as this technique involves heating only the tumours with a highly focused ultrasound, it means patients can be treated without an overnight stay in hospital and avoiding the distressing side effects associated with the current therapies.

A study in UK has found that focal HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) provides the ‘perfect’ outcome without any major side effects and free of cancer 12 months after treatment, in nine out of ten cases. Traditional surgery or radiotherapy can only provide the perfect outcome in half of cases currently.

Experts have said the results are ‘very encouraging’ and were a ‘paradigm’ shift in treatment of the disease.

HIFU is a Minimally Invasive Prostate Cancer Therapy

HIFU is an outpatient procedure, generally performed under local or general anesthesia that is completely radiation free. Because HIFU is non surgical, there is no incisions or blood loss and recovery is quick.

HIFU therapy can be repeated, if necessary. It can also be used as a salvage therapy if other prostate cancer treatment options fail.

Because it uses clean ultrasound energy, it doesn’t cause harm to any tissue surrounding the targeted focal point.

Advantages of HIFU Treatment

HIFU

  • No blood loss
  • Quick recovery
  • Non surgical
  • Radiation free
  • An outpatient procedure

This is most modern technique ideal for treatment of low grade prostate cancer. It involves no surgery, no radiation , good cancer control, minimal morbidity.

HIFU helps to improve the quality of life after Treatment and there are some more advantages like early return of erections and good urinary control.

Preparing for HIFU

Preparing for HIFUYour surgeon will explain how to prepare for the procedure.

HIFU is usually done as a day-case procedure under general anesthesia. This means you will be asleep during the procedure. If you’re having a general anesthetic, you will be asked to follow fasting instructions. This means not eating or drinking, typically for about six hours beforehand. However, it’s important to follow your surgeon’s advice.

Your surgeon will discuss with you what will happen before, during and after your procedure, and any pain you might have. This is your opportunity to understand what will happen, and you can help yourself by preparing questions to ask about the risks, benefits and any alternatives to the procedure. This will help you to be informed, so you can give your consent for the procedure to go ahead, which you may be asked to do by signing a consent form.

What Happens During HIFU

HIFU takes up to three hours, but this depends on the size of your prostate and how much of it is being treated.

Your surgeon will pass a lubricated probe into your rectum. During the procedure, precisely focused ultrasound waves raise the temperature of the targeted prostate tissue to 195 degrees Fahrenheit in 2-3 seconds. This rapid-firing heat destroys the targeted tissue while leaving structures outside the targeted tissue unharmed. The probe will have a cooling balloon around it to protect nearby areas from the high temperature.

New Treatment for Prostate Cancer Gives ‘Perfect Results’ for Nine in Ten Men: Research

A new treatment for prostate cancer can rid the disease from nine in ten men without debilitating side effects, a study has found, leading to new hope for tens of thousands of men.

It is hoped the new treatment, which involves heating only the tumours with a highly focused ultrasound, will mean men can be treated without an overnight stay in hospital and avoiding the distressing side effects associated with current therapies.

A study has found that focal HIFU, high-intensity focused ultrasound, provides the ‘perfect’ outcome of no major side effects and free of cancer 12 months after treatment, in nine out of ten cases.

Traditional surgery or radiotherapy can only provide the perfect outcome in half of cases currently.

Experts have said the results are ‘very encouraging’ and were a ‘paradigm’ shift in treatment of the disease.

It is hoped that large scale trials can now begin so the treatment could be offered routinely on the NHS within five years.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence will say in new guidance next week that the treatment is safe and effective and larger scale trials should go ahead.

Mr. Adedeji Iheanacho From Nigeria – Robotic Surgery for Prostate Cancer

To discover that I suffered from enlarged Prostate which had some cancer involvement was quite a shock for me just after I turned 55 years last December. I then went to the Internet and found this website Safemedtrip.com amongst several others. I sent e-mails of my reports with my specific problem outlined to them?.

Now just 2 weeks later, I am glad that I made a quick decision and I am feeling much better and ready to return home. I attribute this to the world class technology here in India and the skill of the surgeon and staff who have worked so hard to get me back on my feet. The staff at the hospital were all smiles and very helpful.

I enjoyed all my meals during my stay. I would recommend anyone who needs a Prostate Surgery to go for the HIFU or Robotic ? option, it is a bit expensive but the pay offs are superb – less pain, quick recovery and no fear of complications. Thank you all and God bless you!
