Any feedback on this process?
I inderstand T-1 or T-2 stage only and out of country: Canada / Europe.
Sounds too good to be true for those T-1/2 stage guys, but they're doing it.  No down time, cathedar two weeks, same / better incontenance/ED stats than RT & RP.
No search results this forum.   
PSA:      9.95
Gleason: 7 (3/4)
CT:        No mets indicated beyond Prostate

If you click on the Resources post (second from top) and go down to the "Journeys" section and then scroll down these, you will find at least three about HIFU.
