PROFOUND MEDICAL PARTNERS WITH VITURO HEALTH TO OFFER TULSA-PRO®
We are pleased to announce that Profound Medical has entered into its first US agreement with Vituro Health to make TULSA-PRO® (which was recently cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for prostate tissue ablation) available to Vituro Health physicians for patient use.
“We are very excited to partner with Profound Medical to offer this state-of-the-art technology to our physicians and patients,” said Vituro Health CEO Clete Walker. “We have always envisioned new technologies coming to market that support our mission to elevate the standard of care and give patients viable alternatives for a greater quality of life.”
Vituro Health will begin treating patients with TULSA-PRO® in Sarasota, Florida with Medical Director, Dr. Stephen Scionti. Dr. Scionti is one of the nation’s leading authorities in non-invasive ablative therapies for prostate cancer. “This exciting new technology allows physicians to successfully treat a broader range of patients and substantially reduce the life-changing side effects caused by surgery and radiation,” said Dr. Scionti. “Patients should continue to be vigilant in finding physicians who work to preserve their long-term quality of life.”
“Dr. Scionti and Vituro Health are recognized leaders in the ablative technology world, so we are pleased to be partnering with them to make treatment with TULSA-PRO® immediately available to patients,” said Abbey Goodman, Profound Medical’s Director of U.S. Sales. “Together, our goal is to safely and effectively treat prostate tissue disease using a technology that also maximizes quality of life.”
