By participating in medical research and engaging with students and colleagues on a regular basis, these urologists can apply research breakthroughs and the latest clinical trials to patient care. That’s why patients from all over the United States travel to Indianapolis to benefit from the advanced care provided by IU School of Medicine faculty to treat testicular, bladder and prostate cancer as well as pediatric reconstruction and stone disease.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a focal treatment for prostate cancer that allows precise application of heat to destroy cancer tissue without heating the intervening tissue. HIFU is radiation-free and does not require incisions. Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Urology faculty physicians were among the first to acquire the system to provide HIFU for patient care.
