Dr Harrison – Focal Therapy/HIFU Patient

HIFU Focal Therapy patient Dr Harrison says, “It was one of those situations where you think, how could this happen to me. I treat disease every day of one form or another and now it is coming my direction. I then got on the internet, like anybody would, and began to search what my options were… and I discovered HIFU.”

“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.”
