The Focal Therapy Clinic has been established by three of the leading practitioners of prostate cancer focal therapy in the world, Tim Dudderidge, Marc Laniado and Raj Nigam, and recently joined by the equally eminent Alan Doherty. They along with other industry experts have created The Focal Therapy Clinic to provide confidential help, advice and awareness to patients who should be considering focal therapy as a part of their prostate cancer treatment options.
Prostate cancer tended to be a disease that was feared by many men, as it used to be common to diagnose it at a very late stage. Now it is more commonly diagnosed early, and as such there are many new treatments available that offer far fewer side effects. In some cases, prostate cancer can be left untreated under active surveillance, but in many cases it will require some form of intervention. The earlier prostate cancer is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat.
If you are anxious about the effect prostate surgery or radiotherapy will have on your sexual and urinary function, or the on-going commitment and worry of Active Surveillance, HIFU Focal Therapy is a treatment option you should consider.
Focal Therapy is a general term for non-invasive techniques such as high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). It is used for destroying small tumours inside the prostate while leaving the remaining gland intact.
As a group of consultants we are passionate about all prostate cancer sufferers knowing about all of their treatment options.
Based upon the details that you know and can provide to us, we will send you a Plain English personalised preliminary suitability report for HIFU Focal Therapy treatment of your prostate cancer.
You can use the information we provide in your conversations with your existing NHS and/or private treatment consultant. Should you wish to talk with us further we would be grateful to help you, but there is absolutely no obligation for you to do so whatsoever.
