This is a new approach by the Urology specialist to treat prostate cancer in Marbella by means of surgery that allows the localised tumour to be removed without the need to remove the entire gland, which is a revolution for the techniques used for years.
Until now, when prostate cancer was diagnosed early, the gland was removed, with very good results from an oncological point of view, although the cases of patients suffering from impotence, incontinence or stenosis have been high.
With advances in diagnostic imaging, specialists have come to the conclusion that if the tumour is localised and its size is known, it can be removed focally without the need to remove the entire gland.
There are already many centres working on focal therapy in Spain. Hospital Ochoa Marbella takes a step forward and joins the advance in pioneering and less invasive techniques when it comes to treating pathologies.

Irreversible Electroporation IRE prostate
Advantages of IRE treatment
As the technique is based on the generation of an electric field that preserves blood vessels and nerve tissue as much as possible, the probability of preserving urinary and sexual function, avoiding cases of impotence, incontinence or stenosis, is greater than in other treatments which, however, have given very good results from an oncological point of view.
Focal therapy exclusively treats the damaged area, which has been previously localised thanks to magnetic resonance imaging. The irreversible electroporation technique uses an electric field on the tumour which causes irreversible damage to the cells leading to programmed cell death.
IRE does not require hospitalisation and the patient is discharged a few hours after the procedure and goes home without a bladder catheter or scar.
