The Maimonides Prostate Center
Maimonides Medical Center launched the first comprehensive Prostate Center in Brooklyn. Maimonides surgeons were among the first in New York to use robotic surgery to treat prostate cancer with unmatched precision, and today remain at the forefront of treatment with the most advanced High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) therapy in the nation.
Maimonides is now the ONLY location on the East Coast offering the newest focal HIFU treatment using high intensity sound waves to target only the cancer by heating up and burning the impacted tissue, while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. Patients’ prostates are left intact, and there is no radiation or scarring. This short, same-day treatment results in fewer side effects and leads to quicker recovery times for patients.
