Texas Health Dallas Urologist One of First in U.S. to Use New Minimally Invasive Prostate Cancer Treatment
Texas Health Dallas - Press Release
April 01, 2016
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men behind lung cancer, with the federal Centers for Disease Control estimating that approximately one in seven men will be diagnosed with the disease. Until now, patients faced with this common cancer had to choose from treatment options that would likely cure their cancer, but cause long-lasting and life changing after-effects.
Dr. James Cochran, urologist on the medical staff at Texas Health Dallas, is the first in Texas and one of only a handful in the whole country to use high-intensity frequency ultrasound (HIFU), a minimally-invasive outpatient prostate cancer treatment that does not affect tissue surrounding the prostate, preserving patient quality of life.
SonaCare Medical, LLC announces that Sonablate HIFU prostate ablation is now available in Dallas, Texas. Dr. James Cochran recently launched his U.S. HIFU program, performing his inaugural procedure at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on March 16th, 2016.
