Busch Center First in State to Offer Groundbreaking TULSA Procedure
ALPHARETTA, Ga. (March 25, 2020) – Busch Center, the leading prostate MRI facility in America, is now offering a groundbreaking cancer treatment procedure, known as the TULSA (Transurethral Ultrasound Ablation) Procedure, which requires no incision, no radiation and is customized to treat only unhealthy prostate tissue. Busch Center is one of the few elite facilities equipped to provide this innovative treatment option.
“We are proud to offer the TULSA Procedure to our patients as it fits with our commitment to provide the most accurate, least invasive care possible for men’s prostate health,” explains Dr. Joseph J. Busch, Oncological Radiologist, “The procedure is customized to each patient, so we only treat the impacted tissue and leave the healthy tissue intact. This is a revolutionary treatment option for men with prostate cancer.”
Standard prostate cancer treatments, including complete prostate removal (prostatectomy) or radiation therapy, can be extremely painful and are associated with incontinence, impotence and nerve damage, which can greatly reduce a man’s quality of life. The TULSA Procedure, using recently FDA-cleared technology developed by Profound Medical Corp., provides customizable, predictable and incision-free ablation of a defined region of the prostate while actively protecting surrounding organs and structures.
“Our goal is to elevate the standard of prostate care for men in America through early detection, accurate diagnosis and minimally invasive treatments so that men maintain a high quality of life,” Dr. Busch explains, “Offering the TULSA Procedure helps us deliver on that promise.”
At Busch Center, the TULSA Procedure is a single-day outpatient procedure, just like the highly accurate MRI screenings and MR-Guided In-bore Targeted Biopsies performed at the center. For more information, please visit www.buschcenter.com.
