High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) has emerged among the country’s fastest-growing new outpatient treatment options for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is eradicated through the precision focusing of sound waves to a targeted spot, creating an interaction between the sound waves and the cancerous tissue resulting in extreme heat that destroys cancer cells.

HIFU is a minimally invasive procedure which offers drastically reduced side effects, such as erectile dysfunction and incontinence, while achieving the same efficacy rates as traditional, more invasive prostate treatment options.

Dr. Anup Vora and his team at Chesapeake Urology offer are one of only a few practices in the Mid-Atlantic region to offer HIFU for prostate cancer.
