New Prostate Cancer Treatment Offers Non-surgical Alternative
ABC News

A new procedure that offers prostate cancer patients a non-surgery alternative can be a game changer in treating the disease.

Urologist Dr. Inderbir Gill with Keck Medicine of USC helped pioneer the non-invasive treatment for prostate cancer called high intensity focused ultrasound, or HIFU.

“I was offered this procedure because of my health conditions,” said Thomas Lechuga, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Lechuga already had a triple bypass. So recovering from another surgery would not be easy. Gill recommended he undergo the new procedure.
