High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or HIFU, is a precise and targeted noninvasive therapy for localized prostate cancer. HIFU uses ultrasound energy, or sound waves, to heat and destroy specifically targeted areas of tissue. During HIFU, the sound waves pass through healthy tissue without causing damage. However, at the focal point of the sound waves (like a magnifying glass focusing the rays of the sun to burn a leaf), the tissue temperature rises to 90 degrees Celsius destroying the targeted tissue. HIFU has distinct therapeutic advantages over traditional prostate cancer therapies. Dr. Leff is an expert on treatment options for prostate cancer, with 35 years of treatment experience to draw from.
