Considering FLA

Has anyone had experience with Sperling Prostate Center or Prostate Laser Center, or had FLA anywhere else?  Husband has PSA 11, Gleason 7 (3+4) one core and one Gl 6.  Age 60.  Was considering CK but discovered this treatment.

 

Thanks!

If a treatment is new, it is little proven as effective.

If it is long-established, but no one has heard of it...well, there are probably reasons for that also.

I am unfamiliar with them myself,

I've heard of Dr. Sperling. He is one of the pioneers of FLA

You also may consider HIFU which is also focused
