Dr. Douglas Chinn is a guest on Ask Dr. Barken Video Blog.
Dr. Douglas Chinn talks about Focal HIFU
for Active Surveillance patients. These are
patients who, although they are on active
surveillance, want to know about a less
aggressive treatment for that time when they
feel they do need treatment. Focal HIFU is
less aggressive compared to other interventions,
but it gives the patient something to eradicate the
cancer. and it has the advantage of a very low
rate of complications. The focal HIFU can also be
repeated if needed.
