Dr. Geo Espinosa, ND, LAc, IFMCP, CNS, clinical assistant professor of integrative and functional urology at New York University and author of Thrive—Don’t Survive: Dr. Geo’s Guide to Living Your Best Life Before & After Prostate Cancer, discusses treating prostate cancer with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), in which a probe is inserted into the rectum and the prostate tumor is destroyed with ultrasound. This treatment is most effective in men with low-grade prostate cancer. HIFU is relatively safe, and few patients have erectile dysfunction or urinary incontinence afterward.
