BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vituro Health and Arkansas Urology, LUGPA member and the largest urology practice in the state, partnered to offer patients in Arkansas and surrounding states the latest, most innovative technologies in prostate cancer treatment and precision disease management. In conjunction with Vituro Health, Arkansas Urology will offer patients advanced diagnostics, navigation services, and HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) therapy. "Arkansas Urology provides the highest quality care and innovation to their patients, we are fortunate to have this quality group representing the Vituro Health brand. Dr. Tim Goodson, his partners and skilled staff are great additions to our growing men's health delivery system," said Clete Walker, CEO of Vituro Health.
The Vituro Health PPMP (Precision Prostate Management Program) offers members personalized plans to determine the best course of action and treatment for their specific situations and needs. The program ensures that men receive the proper treatment they need by only the most skilled and highly trained physicians. Patient support includes scheduling, all travel related services, pursuing insurance reimbursements and serving as an educated resource.
With all the advancements in prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment, patients need to remain vigilant to properly navigate their treatment options. For qualified patients who are looking for a better quality of life treatment, HIFU can prevent the traditional side effects of erectile dysfunction and incontinence.
Dr. Tim Goodson of Arkansas Urology has experience in numerous minimally invasive methodologies, and is excited to add HIFU as another tool he can use to treat patients with fewer side effects. "I've been following the focal therapy movement for a long time with great interest," said Goodson. "Giving patients a minimally invasive treatment option is what we are all about at Arkansas Urology, and this partnership with Vituro is the perfect opportunity to continue doing that on a high level."
Dr. Goodson believes partnering with Vituro Health is the right decision for many reasons. "We were very impressed with Vituro as a whole and the experience that they bring. The attention to detail given to their patients is another thing that sets them apart from other HIFU providers."
Dr. Goodson views focal therapy and HIFU as the next step forward in the prostate cancer industry. "For folks who might be uncomfortable with active surveillance, and don't want the side effects that more invasive treatments like surgery can bring, HIFU is a great option."
By partnering with Arkansas Urology, Vituro Health now offers prostate cancer management services and HIFU treatment to men in 11 different locations across the country.
