The Evolution of Prostate Care and Men’s Health at the ALTA Klinik
Please join Profound Medical and guest speaker, Dr. Lumiani, as he will discuss how the TULSA-PRO® system drove the evolution of prostate care in his Alta Klinik. He will highlight the history of the ALTA Klinik, how they implemented the TULSA-PRO system and recruit patients, and how the TULSA-PRO advanced their overall prostate care. Comparing where their practice was, to where it is now, will offer insight to the overall men’s health benefits of the TULSA-PRO system, and how it can advance other hospitals and clinics worldwide, by offering their patients the same standard of prostate care.
We look forward to having you join us!
The TULSA-PRO® system is designed to provide customizable and predictable ablation of a surgeon defined region of prostate while actively protecting the urethra and rectum to help preserve the patient’s natural functional abilities.
Registration for this event is now closed.
Dr. Agron Lumiani
Founder, Medical Director, and Radiologist
Dr. Agron Lumiani has decades of experience in computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He is one of the first radiologists in Germany to work intensively with computed tomography in 1978 and magnetic resonance tomography in 1984.
In 2006, Dr. Lumiani founded today’s ALTA Klinik. The concept of the clinic is to offer innovative procedures and methods using modern MRT and CT technology, but also to carry out all MRT and CT examinations in high quality.
Since 2009, MRI prostate diagnostics has been a second focus of the ALTA Klinik. Dr. Lumiani and his team carry out high-resolution MRI examinations of the prostate as well as targeted MRI- guided prostate biopsies under live control. This biopsy that Dr. Agron Lumiani contains two innovations. On the one hand, that the access to the prostate does not go through the colon or perineum, as is standard practice, but rather through a sterile point trough the gluteal muscle. On the other hand, that suspicious areas in the prostate can be biopsied in a targeted manner using live MRI images.
In March 2017, Dr. Lumiani carried out the world’s first focal prostate treatment for localized prostate cancer with the MRI-controlled TULSA-PRO therapy . As the first center worldwide, Dr. Lumiani and his team also use the TULSA-PRO therapy specifically to reduce the size of the prostate . He already gained his experience in the field of prostate treatments in 2009 with the classic HIFU therapy. Since then, weekly organ-preserving therapies have been carried out in the ALTA Klinik.
