For those of you who are interested clinical trials for HIFU....there is a Dr. Russel Locke in Ocala,FL. who has done the procedure. I was not aware of this when I had surgery which led to radiation. Criterion for acceptance is PSA <10, prostate size<40g, gleason <6.
You can google his # or try 866)650-4466. Good Luck.

It is interesting to read about the Gleason <6 for Hifu. In the early days of PROTON's they were taking about anyone who was willing. My Dad had Proton back about 11 years ago and Doing well.

Now they won't do Proton for Gleason 8, 9 or 10.

Before surgery my g was an 8. Loma Linda told me to go ahead and get the surgery after reviewing all the stuff I sent to them. I am encouraged by any progress to by-pass surgery and I hope HiFu proves to be very successful.
