High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for fibroid and adenomyosis management

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) or Focus Ultrasound Surgery (FUS) is the latest technique in treating certain cancers, adenomyosis and fibroids.  This is a non-invasive therapeutic technique which is an alternative to hysterectomy for women who want to preserve their uterus.  Benign or malignant tumors are destroyed using focused ultrasound which uses acoustic lenses to generate heat at one point.

Advantages of HIFU
  • HIFU is a non-invasive surgical procedure which is fully computerized.
  • Surrounding tissues are not damaged.
  • Child bearing capacity is preserved because the uterus is not removed.
  • Short treatment time and short recovery period
