Focal One® - Prostate Cancer Management

Focal Therapy in Prostate Cancer Management

Focal Therapy provides an option to patients between active surveillance and radical therapy, filling a vital treatment gap in Prostate Cancer Management.


Focal Therapy offers many patients long-term oncological control with minimum impact on Quality of Life.   

Prostate Cancer Management - A Paradigm Shift

The evolution of diagnostic tools allows for new treatment options. 20 years ago, the diagnosis for Prostate Cancer was limited to Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) DRE and random biopsies. As a result leaving Patients with Radical Surgery or Radiotherapy as their only options, despite the potential functional consequences. Active Surveillance was sometimes discussed but the lack of precision of the diagnostic tools did not allow physicians to safely offer this option outside of clinical trials.

Focal Therapy Fills An Important Treatment Gap In Prostate Cancer

Advanced imaging, targeted biopsies and genomic testing have changed the ability to localize and risk stratify the cancer. Comparatively patients are seeking an option between active surveillance and radical therapy and its potential consequences on their quality of life. Focal Therapy has the potential to fill the gap between active surveillance and radical treatments for low and intermediate-risk prostate cancer patients.

Focal One Robotic HIFU provides a safe, effective, and minimally invasive option to target and ablate the diseased portion of the prostate without damaging the surrounding tissue. Focal One is the Leading Prostate Focal Therapy platform in the hands of the urologist.


High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) uses an ultrasound probe to deliver high-intensity sound waves at a precise point. The magnitude of ultrasound energy delivered rapidly raises the temperature at the focal point, causing coagulation necrosis without damaging healthy tissue and structures
outside the targeted area.

The Rationale For Focal Therapy

  • Represents the perfect balance between Active Surveillance and Over-treatment
  • Low Risk of Side Effects such as incontinence and erectile dysfunction
  • Quality of Life Preservation with minimal time away from work and leisure activities
