The Focal Therapy Clinic Featured In The Mail on Sunday

We have been recently featured in this article in The Mail on Sunday.

The article focuses on Paul Sayer, 64, from Southend-on-Sea in Essex, diagnosed with cancer in his 60s. Paul’s surgeon was ‘strongly in favour of surgery’ and the operation could have been carried out within 10 days of the consultation.

During discussions with his consultant Paul mentioned that he had heard about HIFU Focal Therapy and wanted to know if this was a treatment option he could consider. In the article Paul says the doctor ‘shut down the conversation’ and said that HIFU Focal Therapy was not a viable treatment option for him.

Paul successfully had HIFU Focal Therapy treatment after going back to his doctor and contacting a consultant who specialises in ablative treatment for prostate cancer.

The article also mentions our own Tim Dudderidge who says ‘Patients have a right to know about it, so they can make an informed choice about their options. But the fact is many don’t, which is scandalous.’

“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.”
