HIFU Clinic of Urology is the first centre in Poland dedicated to comprehensive diagnostics and modern treatment of prostate cancer. HIFU method treatment lasts usually from 90 minutes to 2.5 hours (depending on the size of tumour) with regional anesthesia in the patient (from the waist down). Treatment is conducted only via natural ways of the body (without cutting the tissue) using per rectal probe. HIFU method is minimally invasive, resulting in a short hospitalisation and lower risk of complications.
