“As the largest provider of HIFU treatments in the U.S., with over 3,000 patients treated since FDA clearance in 2015, we are excited to strengthen our relationship with Sonablate Corp. and continue our partnership to bring the Sonablate HIFU technology to the urology community. This is a very exciting time for patients with the recent Medicare reimbursement; this leading edge HIFU procedure is now affordable for a wider segment of the prostate disease population. Until 2023, nearly all the patients we have treated have paid out of pocket for the HIFU treatment” commented John Linn, CEO of HIFU Prostate Services.
