Miami urologist Dr. George Suarez, Founder and CEO of HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound), today announced that he – along with Austin urologist Dr. Richard Chopp – has developed a relationship with the NFL to provide their professional services to the entire NFL community on a pro-bono basis.
This comes following the release of “The Jerry Sisemore Story”, which details Jerry’s fight – and subsequent victory – over prostate cancer thanks to the Dr. Suarez and the HIFU procedure. After researching his options, NFL all-pro Sisemore chose this non-invasive procedure and beat the odds of surviving prostate cancer while preserving his quality of life.
Mr. Sisemore has since been dedicated to this cause and has been assisting NFL alumni to get treatment. Dr. Suarez and Dr. Chopp have been working together to put a program in place to provide screening and testing to the entire NFL community in an effort to eradicate prostate cancer, all pro bono.
In addition to offering the HIFU procedure, your Miami urologist Dr. Suarez will also offer genetic/DNA testing to all association members in order to determine the nature of their cancer and their family’s propensity toward prostate cancer. The reach and impact of this offering is immeasurable.
When asked about the treatment, Dr. Suarez replied: “My interest in HIFU goes back to 1998, when the technology was initially approved in Europe. What fascinated me was the technology’s ability to provide a non-invasive, effective treatment for prostate cancer that preserves a man’s quality of life-related issues. Over the years I have seen the improvements and evolution of the technology. Medicine is about innovation and science.”
HIFU offers numerous advantages over alternative treatments such as:
- Minimally invasive, outpatient treatment;
- No cutting or bleeding into surrounding healthy tissue;
- Rapid recovery and return to normal activity;
- Minimal risk of urinary or sexual side effects;
- Minimal catheter time post-treatment;
- Can be performed as a partial or focal treatment;
- Procedure can be repeated if needed.
