First Jacksonville TULSA-PRO® Patient Treated by Dr. Stephen Scionti and Dr. Ali Kasraeian
March 26, 2020
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Ali Kasraeian of Kasraeian Urology with Dr. Stephen Scionti treated the first Jacksonville patient with TULSA-PRO® in partnership with Vituro Health.
TULSA-PRO® is a transurethral prostate tissue ablation system combining real-time Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with robotically-driven directional thermal ultrasound and closed-loop temperature feedback control software to deliver predictable physician-prescribed ablation of whole-gland or partial prostate tissue.
TULSA-PRO® from Profound Medical announced that it received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market TULSA-PRO® for ablation of prostate tissue in August of 2019. Profound Medical and Vituro Health partnered in the same month to offer TULSA-PRO® in the United States. The first treatments were done in Sarasota at Choice Diagnostic Imaging by Dr. Stephen Scionti, the medical director for Vituro Health.
“Vituro Health continues to be the frontrunner in ablative technologies,” said Vituro Health CEO Clete Walker. “We want to make sure that all of our physicians and patients have access to the newest non-invasive technologies when it comes to the treatment of prostate cancer.”
Dr. Ali Kasraeian completed a fellowship in minimally invasive urological surgery at the world-renowned Montsouris Institute in Paris, France. He specializes in the advanced diagnosis, second opinion consultation and personalized management of prostate cancer as well as minimally invasive surgery for bladder, kidney, and prostate cancers and other urological conditions. Dr. Kasraeian has been performing HIFU since completing his fellowship in 2008 and trained with TULSA-PRO® over the last year, both with Dr. Stephen Scionti.
“I am excited to begin offering this advanced technology to my patients in Jacksonville. I am committed to offering my patients the latest technologies that provide the greatest quality of life results after treatment and the TULSA-PRO® with its real-time MRI is our newest tool,” said Dr. Kasraeian. The practice is currently accepting new patients for consultation and treatment planning. You can contact us by phone at 904.727.7955 or 1.844.KAS-URO1 or by email at tele@KasraeianUrology.com.
