HIFU Review

Dr. Scionti is one of the most caring and knowledgeable doctors I have ever met.
I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer 4 1/2 years ago. My then urologist gave me only the option of surgery with the probability of complications of sexual dysfunction and incontinence. Surgery would necessitate being away from work for many weeks to heal. My life for myself and my wife would be forever changed.
I investigated HIFU on the internet for a different approach to my medical issues. Thank God that I consulted with Dr. Scionti for a different solution to my problem. I had a 3T MRI and a targeted biopsy with Dr. Scionti to accurately localize my cancer. I had the HIFU procedure done on my prostate without any complications of sexual dysfunction or incontinence or pain. I went back to work and playing golf immediately. I am 4 1/2 years post-op, and I have been checked yearly by Dr. Scionti for any recurrence of my cancer with a 3T MRI or an occasional 3T MRI guided biopsy. All is well.
I am so grateful to Dr. Scionti for preserving my life and happiness. His expertise and knowledge of Prostate cancer and treatment are state of the art. Why have sexual dysfunction and incontinence if there is another option?
