Dr. Anshu Guleria and his staff at the Virginia Prostate Cancer Center have considerable experience in minimally invasive treatments for prostate cancer. They will take the time to sit down with you to see if HIFU is the right prostate cancer treatment for you. When HIFU became available in North America, Dr. Guleria studied the reports of its use in Europe and decided that HIFU is going to be the next evolution in localized prostate cancer therapy. Dr. Guleria is the most experienced doctor practicing HIFU for Prostate Cancer in Virginia and he looks forward to helping you decide what is the best prostate cancer treatment option for you.
HIFU treats the entire prostate by targeting tissue in overlapping treatment zones. The tissue is heated rapidly in small lesion until eventually the entire prostate is ablated. By treating the entire prostate gland, the chance for recurrence, or the cancer coming back is minimized. All the organs and tissue outside of the prostate remain unaffected during HIFU.
