Dr Harrison – Focal Therapy/HIFU Patient

Reed – Focal Therapy/HIFU Patient

HIFU Focal Therapy patient Reed says, “Like so many of you when you hear about HIFU, you say ‘this is too good to be true. It can’t be true.’ So I sat up while I thought my world was ending and did all types of research on the internet. Everything I found sounded too good to be true, so I talked to my doctor and he said it was all true.”

“HIFU is something people need to be aware of – I believe this treatment should be more widely available and more widely promoted. It wasn’t something suggested to me as a possibility by my urologist and I actually raised it myself. I would recommend HIFU and in fact have recommended it to others.”
