MRI-Guided Prostate Laser Ablation
- MRI-guided Prostate Laser Ablation is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure designed to identify, target and destroy prostate tumors while sparing the healthy prostate tissues and dramatically reducing the risk of side effects like incontinence and impotence.
The procedure is designed to destroy only a patient's main prostate tumor (or index tumor) while sparing the remaining healthy tissue. The goal is to control the disease while avoiding collateral damage to sensitive structures that can affect a man's quality of life.
Additionally, MRI-Guided Prostate Laser Ablation offers an important "safety net" for patients should additional tumors be discovered or new ones develop down the road. Not only can laser ablation be repeated, but it also preserves the ability to re-treat with other modalities, including surgery and radiation if necessary.
