Scott G, Florida

NFL Great Jerry Sisemore Defeats Prostate Cancer with HIFU
"Everything was first class, well run and efficient. I had a cheeseburger after the procedure and was walking with my feet in the Caribbean ocean that night! I flew home to Austin the very next day."
Jerry Sisemore - Former NFL All Pro
"Hope is a great commodity. Likewise is faith when it comes to making a potentially life changing decision that will impact a cancer cure, as well as your quality of life, for the rest of you life. One decision, one moment, for a life time. Call me today and get informed about HIFU."
Dr. George Suarez
"Dr. Suarez, thanks for the same outcome as Jerry Sisemore. I never thought that I would have prostate cancer and thanks to you I no longer have it or any of it's undesirable side effects... I'm sharing this story with a couple of friends for their knowledge of this non-invasive procedure... With much love and thanks,"
Peter Loftin - one of North Carolina's most accomplished businessmen and philanthropists.
My interest in HIFU goes back to 1998, when the technology first was approved in Europe. What fascinated me was the technology's ability to provide a non-invasive, effective treatment for prostate cancer that preserves a man's quality of life related issues. Over the years I have seen the improvements and evolution of the technology. Clearly the trend in all surgical disciplines is toward an effective, less invasive treatment…HIFU provides an effective image guided therapy with fewer risks of complications that is truly non-invasive. Medicine is about innovation and science.
I recognize each person is unique and requires a treatment individually tailored to them in order to achieve a successful cancer cure, limit related side effects, and maintain quality of life. Likewise, every HIFU treatment is unique to each individual patient. I am sensitive to the issues regarding the diagnosis of prostate cancer, and its subsequent treatment. Including its physical and emotional potential side effects to the patient, as well as collateral implications on his family.
"Dr. Suarez is a pioneer in his field. I visited other docs prior to Dr. Suarez and he is hands down the best..." Jim M, Texas
Patients will never ask for yesterday or today's medical care. They want tomorrow's medical innovations. HIFU is very much a futuristic medical technology that is here today. It is an acoustical scalpel without as much as a skin incision. It is the almalgamation of medicine, science and technology
George M. Suarez, M.D., FACS - The High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Expert
"I was driving to work this morning thinking about you, my experience in Cancun and I realized I'd probably never have an opportunity to thank you. I am, of course, a proponent of HIFU for Prostate Cancer and have referred at least two other patients to you. Case wise, I am off all related meds to the procedure, everything seems to be working and improving gradually and the rest is history."
Ron Stark, California
"Mr. Stark, Thank you for your email and your complimentary comments. One of my greatest rewards as an expert in the field of HIFU is working with new doctors and training them. But the greatest reward is the personal gratification from a satisfied and happy patient, like yourself, with great clinical outcome."

"I was treated by Dr. Suarez in Nassau in June, 2011. I did a lot of research on prostate cancer and its treatment and felt that HIFU was the right choice for me. I also did a lot of research on urologists who perform HIFU procedures. I choose Dr. Suarez because of his good outcomes and his extensive experience in performing HIFU procedures. I have been very pleased with both the procedure and its outcomes. I found the US HIFU staff to be knowledgeable and courteous. The pre-procedure preparation and post procedure follow-up were both standardized and very good. Prior to the procedure I was diagnosed as a Gleason 6(3+3) and had a PSA of 5. My PSA level now is 0.124. My complications were minimal, my continence was unaffected, and changes in my potency were about what I expected and very tolerable. I recommend Dr. Suarez and the HIFU procedure and am available as a reference through Dr. Suarez's office."
"I am not sure of the normal rate of progression for recovery after HIFU. In the beginning (days 2-7) I was thinking it was going to be a long progression. But after that point it seems to have taken off and occurred very quickly. I am very impressed with the lack of pain. I am still not sure what a bladder spasm is or feels like. If I am having them I am guessing I really am not noticing. In short I am VERY happy with the procedure and technology, while at the same time very disappointed in the inability of the FDA to get off the stick and get this into the main US population as a method of dealing with prostate cancer. I have talked with several folks that went the radical or radiation routes, and comparing what they say they went through, HIFU is like having a minor headache in comparison!"
"Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, the character in the Star Trek television series, once dreamed of the concept of practicing surgery without a scalpel. With the advances in HIFU for prostate cancer, that dream is now a reality. HIFU with the Sonoblate - 500 provides real time visualization of the anatomy, treatment guidance and thermal feedback with it's Tissue Change Monitoring."
