Don’t let your prostate disease hold you back!
“Everything has returned to normal and in some cases is better than what it has been for five years”
– Ben, the first TULSA Procedure patient seen here with Dr. Chin
Professor, Urology and Oncology Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Baltimore MD
“The TACT study demonstrated that treatment with TULSA-PRO® provides safe and effective prostate tissue ablation, with little impact on men’s functional ability compared to well-established treatment modalities such as radical prostatectomy and radiation therapy.“
Dr. Christian Pavlovich, Professor, Urology and Oncology Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Baltimore MD

A device is inserted into the urethra (transurethral), which delivers the ultrasound energy towards the prostate. This transurethral device also cools the urethra, protecting it from the thermal ultrasound energy. A cooling device is also inserted into the rectum, which protects the rectal tissue, helping to preserve the patient’s natural functions.
During treatment planning, the physician uses high-precision MR imaging to determine the areas of the prostate that will be ablated and draw out these boundary lines, while avoiding important nerve bundles and critical structures around the prostate.
“Unlike other ultrasound systems…you can monitor the ultrasound ablation process in real-time and get immediate MRI feedback of the thermal dose and efficacy.“
