HIFU Prostate Services, LLC (HPS), the leading provider of HIFU technology to physician practices in the United States, announced today a partnership with Maury Jayson, MD of South Florida Urology that will make HIFU available in Pembroke Pines, Fla. near Miami.
This partnership will add HIFU to the comprehensive list of treatments that Dr. Jayson already offers men for localized prostate cancer.
“I have successfully performed HIFU treatment for more than 10 years and my patients have done extremely well with results rivaling or exceeding all other therapies,” said Dr. Jayson. “We are thrilled to finally be able to offer this minimally invasive treatment option for prostate cancer in South Florida.”
HIFU, cleared by the FDA for prostate tissue ablation in October 2015, is a non-invasion treatment that uses sound waves to heat and destroy tissue in the prostate, including cancerous tissue. It is a one-time, outpatient procedure that allows men to return to their normal lifestyle within a few days.
“Dr. Jayson has been working with HIFU patients for many years, treating them outside the country where HIFU was approved prior to 2015. He is experienced with the technology, understands how to select the best candidates for HIFU and believes that patients should have choices when it comes to treatments,” said Jenny Robeson, chief sales officer, HIFU Prostate Services. “He is an ideal partner for HPS and we are excited that patients in south Florida will be able to have access to HIFU with him.”
HIFU may be also be an acceptable salvage treatment if men have already had radiation or surgery and their prostate cancer has returned. Although it is typically a one-time therapy, HIFU may also be repeated if necessary and does not preclude any future treatments including surgery or radiation.
In July 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issues a Medicare code that may help some patients cover part of the cost of the HIFU procedure. Additional information about reimbursement may be found at https://www.hifuprostateservices.com/reimbursement.
Dr. Jayson will treat his HIFU patients at the Weston Outpatient Surgery Center located in Weston, Fla. The Weston ASC features six state-of-the-art operating rooms, two endoscopy suites and one special procedure suite. For additional information on Weston ASC, visit www.westonasc.com.
