Busch Center Treats Prostate Cancer with Ultrasound Technology

Studies show that prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men. According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, men in Georgia have a greater incidence of prostate cancer and higher mortality rates than the U.S. average. Traditional treatment options typically include surgery or radiation, both of which can cause significant side effects.

Alpharetta-based Busch Center now offers an alternative treatment for prostate cancer. Transurethral Ultrasound Ablation (TULSA) technology delivers precise doses of sound waves to destroy diseased prostate tissue while protecting the healthy tissue surrounding the cancerous cells. The Busch Center claims to be the first facility in the Southeast to offer the treatment.

The Center uses MRI imaging to identify the precise location of the cancer for accurate and precise targeting of the technology. After treatment, Busch Center patients can review their imaging results right away with the radiologist in the same visit. The team also provides personalized recommendations for each patient’s care plan, based on evidence-based medicine.

Lead physician, Joseph J. Busch Jr., M.D., is an oncological radiologist with 40 years’ experience in diagnostic radiology. He has trained with and collaborates with experts in whole-body MRI techniques. He offers proactive MRI screening to foster early detection, diagnosis and treatment at Busch Center.

Busch Center is located at Brookside Concourse 100, 3650 Brookside Pkwy, Suite 175, in Alpharetta. For more information, visit BuschCenter.com, Facebook/BuschCenter or Twitter/Busch Center or call 770-424-6270.
