The TULSA Procedure is a radiation-free, incision-free, same-day procedure. The treatment is customizable depending on the patients’ needs, condition and desired functional outcomes. Precise treatment planning and active urethral and rectal cooling during the procedure enables the physician to avoid and protect critical structures around the prostate, such as fragile nerve bundles, and minimize the risk of side effects
About the TULSA Procedure
The word ‘TULSA’ stands for Transurethral Ultrasound Ablation. The procedure is performed in a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) suite and uses the TULSA-PRO® system to precisely ablate targeted prostate tissue. The physician can see the prostate at all times throughout the procedure. The procedure combines real-time MRI with robotically-driven and temperature-controlled directional thermal ultrasound to deliver predictable, physician-prescribed ablation customized to the entire or only specific areas of the prostate gland.
