Focal Therapy for Prostate Cancer

“Robotic Surgery and New Technologies Symposium in Prostate Cancer” was organized in Istanbul with the cooperation of World Endourology Society, Society of Urologic Robotic Surgeons and Acıbadem University. At the international symposium where approximately 250 participants from 14 countries took part, the latest information on the treatment of prostate diseases was handled from A to Z, new innovations in robotics and new technological developments were introduced.

President of World Endourology Association and Urology Specialist Prof. Dr. Ali Rıza Kural talked about the “focal therapy” method that can be applied in the early diagnosis of prostate cancer in his speech at the symposium.  Focal therapy in other words high-intensity focused ultrasonography is becoming increasingly widespread in very early-onset prostate cancer said Prof. Dr. Ali Rıza Kural.

“Cancer cells in focal therapy are either destroyed by freezing or by heating. We prefer to destroy cancer cells with high heat, which is the general preference in the world. In this method, the patient is first MR images, then the cancerous area is marked or the location is precisely detected by intelligent biopsy technique. Cancer cells are then destroyed by giving high-intensity ultrasonic waves to the cancerous area. The focal method only treats the diseased region of the prostate, and the healthy areas of the organ can be protected.”
