EDAP’s Focal One® HIFU to be Showcased at Two Major Robotics & Urology International Congresses


EDAP’s Focal One® HIFU to be Showcased at Two Major Robotics & Urology International Congresses

EDAP TMS SA, the global leader in robotic energy-based therapies, today announced its participation to two major forthcoming international robotics and urology congresses:

  • EAU : European Association of Urology – Amsterdam July 1-4 2022 (EDAP’s booth # C26)  https://eaucongress.uroweb.org/
  • SRS : Society of Robotic Surgery - Orlando, Florida June 30 – July 3 2022 :  https://srobotics.org/registration/

The EAU Congress is one of the preeminent international events dedicated to the urology community. Focal One® Robotic Focal HIFU will be featured and demonstrated at EDAP’s booth #C26 for the duration of the event. Congress presentation topics will include use of HIFU focal therapy in prostate cancer along with supportive HIFU case reviews. Additionally, results from a randomized trial comparing ExactVu 29Mhz micro-ultrasound with MRI will also be presented.

The SRS Congress is the largest gathering of multi-specialty robotic physicians from around the world dedicated to advancing techniques and approaches in elevating patient care. Focal One Robotic Focal HIFU will be presented in the Friday Focal Therapy and Prostate Cancer plenary presentation given by Brian Miles, MD, FACS, Professor of Urology, Weill Cornell Medical College and Vice-Chair Dept. of Urology at Houston Methodist, Houston, TX. Focal One Robotic Focal HIFU will also be presented by Ryan Rhodes, CEO EDAP USA in the SRS Innovative Technologies Session held on Sunday.

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We look forward to attending EAU this year, Europe’s largest urology congress and the first in-person event since 2019. EAU is a tremendous opportunity for us to hear positive experiences from our current customer base while engaging with new prospective customers and urology thought leaders from across Europe. We will also be demonstrating Focal One, which we believe is the most advanced focal therapy platform on the market today. It is high profile meetings such as EAU that allow us to raise the visibility of focal therapy as a viable option within the prostate cancer care continuum and are a key element of our Focal One growth strategy.”

Ryan Rhodes, CEO of EDAP USA, added: “We look forward to meeting with many of the leading urology thought leaders from across the U.S while attending SRS. Many of these clinical attendees have been early adopters of new innovative and emerging robotic technologies in their clinical practice as a means to improve the quality of patient care. Focal therapy and specifically Focal One Robotic HIFU adoption continue to grow as more centers embrace the need to offer prostate cancer patients less invasive treatments. Focal One is the most advanced HIFU platform today controlled by Urologists incorporating robotics, advanced imaging, image fusion along with the ability to deliver precise targeted therapeutic ultrasound to ablate prostate tissue.”
