Charlotte, NC - Sonablate Corp., a global leader in minimally invasive focused ultrasound technologies, today announced that Dr. Bertram Lewis has treated his first Sonablate HIFU patients at AdventHealth Zephyrhills in Zephyrhills, Florida.
AdventHealth Zephyrhills has long been recognized for its commitment to providing exceptional health care services and staying at the forefront of medical innovations. The addition of Sonablate HIFU to their treatment options represents a significant milestone in their mission to deliver the best possible care to patients in Pasco County.
Sonablate HIFU is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that uses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves to precisely target and ablate malignant cells within the prostate gland. By focusing high-intensity energy on specific areas, the treatment destroys diseased cells while preserving healthy tissue and minimizing the risk of side effects commonly associated with traditional treatments.
"We are thrilled Dr. Bertram Lewis and AdventHealth Zephyrhills brought our innovative Sonablate HIFU technology to patients in Pasco County," said Richard Yang, Chief Executive officer of Sonablate Corp." This partnership will ensure that individuals seeking treatment for prostate disease have access to the most advanced and effective options available."
Dr. Bertram Lewis expressed enthusiasm, adding "By introducing Sonablate HIFU to our range of treatments, we can provide patients with a highly targeted, minimally invasive alternative. We are proud to bring this state-of-the-art technology to our community and enhance the quality of life for men throughout their health journey."
AdventHealth Zephyrhills' decision to incorporate Sonablate HIFU further strengthens their commitment to patient-centered care and ensuring access to cutting-edge treatments that optimize outcomes and improve overall quality of life.
