High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
PRECISION PROSTATE CANCER CARE
Arkansas Urology is proud to partner with Vituro Health to be one of 11 different providers in the country of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology, the latest treatment for prostate cancer.
“Arkansas Urology provides the highest quality care and innovation to their patients, we are fortunate to have this quality group representing the Vituro Health brand. Dr. Tim Goodson, his partners and skilled staff are great additions to our growing men’s health delivery system,” said Clete Walker, CEO of Vituro Health.
Dr. Tim Goodson of Arkansas Urology has experience in numerous minimally invasive methodologies, and is excited to add HIFU as another tool he can use to treat patients with fewer side effects. “I’ve been following the focal therapy movement for a long time with great interest,” said Goodson. “Giving patients a minimally invasive treatment option is what we are all about at Arkansas Urology, and this partnership with Vituro is the perfect opportunity to continue doing that on a high level.”
Dr. Goodson believes partnering with Vituro Health is the right decision for many reasons. “We were very impressed with Vituro as a whole and the experience that they bring. The attention to detail given to their patients is another thing that sets them apart from other HIFU providers.”
Dr. Goodson views focal therapy and HIFU as the next step forward in the prostate cancer industry. “For folks who might be uncomfortable with active surveillance, and don’t want the side effects that more invasive treatments like surgery can bring, HIFU is a great option.”
By partnering with Arkansas Urology, Vituro Health now offers prostate cancer management services and HIFU treatment to men in 11 different locations across the country.
PROVEN PROSTATE CANCER THERAPY
HIFU is a minimally invasive procedure which offers drastically reduced side effects, such as erectile dysfunction and incontinence, and the same efficacy rates as traditional, more invasive prostate treatment options.
There are several benefits to HIFU:
- Outpatient procedure
- Minimally invasive
- No surgery, no radiation
- Lower side effect risk
- Personalized treatment
- Quality of life maintenance
- Achieves excellent disease-free rates
Every patient is different and there are many important factors to be taken into consideration to determine if a patient is a good candidate for HIFU treatment.
