If you’re experiencing the symptoms of prostate cancer, have a raised PSA level or have a recent diagnosis of prostate cancer, the King Edward VII’s Hospital Focal Therapy Centre is here to help you.
Focal therapies such as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and Nanoknife are cutting edge treatments for prostate cancer that target the cancerous areas with high precision, leading to a lower risk of incontinence and erectile dysfunction after treatment and a rapid recovery time.
Our focal therapy clinic is led by world-leading experts, supported by nurse specialists and a multi-disciplinary team meaning we’re able to offer personalised treatment plans tailored to your needs and recovery.
We understand this can be an overwhelming and nerve-wrecking time and starting private prostate cancer treatment can be confusing. Our team is here to help you understand the process, choose the right treatment for you and get you back to living life to the fullest.
Focal therapy is suitable for men who have medium (intermediate) risk prostate cancer, ideally in one part of the prostate. As it treats only the cancer, and a small area around the cancer, the side effects of treatment are much less than those for traditional prostate cancer surgery or radiotherapy. It requires a careful assessment of the prostate using MRI and biopsy information.
For men who are suitable, it is done as a day surgery procedure. Follow up is similar to being on active surveillance, and includes MRI scans and sometimes biopsy.
It allows some men to continue to have good sexual and urinary function, while treating the cancer. As it’s a small treatment, it can be repeated, and if necessary, surgery or radiotherapy can be used at a later date.
There are a number of different energies used in focal therapy for prostate cancer, including ultrasound (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound, or HIFU) and electroporation (passing an electrical current across the tumour to kill it). King Edward VII’s hospital is one of the few private hospitals in the UK to offer these treatments.
Start treatment for prostate cancer at the King Edward VII’s Focal Therapy Centre, where our experts will manage your journey from diagnosis to recovery.
