Dr Kevin Blumental of Central Maryland Urology Center Launches New Website for HIFU for Prostate Cancer Treatment
Online PR News – 18-March-2011 – – Online PR News – March, 17, 2011 –Columbia, MD – Dr. Kevin Blumenthal, Maryland Urologist, announces the launch of a new website www.marylandprostatecancer.com. The website aims to teach patients about the benefits of HIFU, or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, for men struggling with prostate cancer. The website’s secondary goal is to bring new information to the marketplace about the usefulness of HIFU as a treatment, as well as how patients can pursue the treatment should they decide to.
The new website includes information about HIFU, including details about the treatment, potential side effects, and comparisons with other conventional prostate cancer treatment options. The goal of the website is to educate consumers and showcase HIFU while still providing information about alternative treatments, so that patients and their partners can make a well informed decision about the right treatment option or options.
HIFU has not been approved by the FDA for use as a prostate cancer treatment in the United States, however HIFU remains a minimally invasive treatment option for patients suffering from prostate cancer. Due to the location of the prostate, many treatments have life-altering side effects, including incontinence and impotence. HIFU can effectively destroy cancer while avoiding these common side effects. The new website informs patients where and how they can pursue treatment if they decide HIFU is their best option.
Dr. Blumenthal provides guidance and helps patients determine if the HIFU treatment is right for them.
