Deciding on a prostate cancer treatment is one of the most important decisions you will make. Find out if HIFU is right for you!


Sarasota Prostate Care in Florida is a state-of-the-art center committed to providing compassionate care while using cutting edge technology for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer with HIFU.

Headed by Dr. Tracy Gapin, Sarasota Prostate Care offers whole gland HIFU and image-guided focal HIFU for the treatment of prostate cancer. Unlike other traditional prostate cancer treatment options such as surgery and radiation, HIFU allows us to accurately and effectively treat prostate cancer with minimal side effects and low recurrence rate. Patients undergoing HIFU treatment for prostate cancer experience negligible impact on their quality of life with minimal risk of incontinence or impotence.

Sarasota Prostate Care also offers advanced techniques to improve prostate cancer detection including genetic-based biomarkers, 3T prostate MRI and MRI-guided 3-D Fusion Prostate Biopsy. These tools significantly improve our ability to accurately diagnose prostate cancer without the risks associated with random ultrasound-guided prostate biopsies.

What Our Patients Are Saying

patientI am so happy to have found Dr. Gapin. I chose him because he offered 3D Fusion MRI in conjunction with targeted biopsy, a procedure I felt superior to traditional “blind biopsy.” It has been 11 days since having HIFU and I feel very good with no residual side effects. I am very fortunate to have found Dr. Gapin and to have been able to take advantage of the treatment options he offers. – T. Belknap

Sarasota Prostate Care offers the most innovative and minimally-invasive treatment options available for prostate cancer. HIFU, or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a precise, non-invasive therapy for the treatment of localized prostate cancer. This ablative therapy uses controlled thermal energy delivered through a rectal ultrasound probe to precisely destroy prostate cancer tissue while minimizing treatment-related side effects.

Fusion Biopsy

Sarasota Prostate Care offers the most advanced prostate cancer screening available in Florida. Utilizing MRI/Ultrasound 3-D Fusion Biopsy technology, we are able to safely and accurately target suspected prostate tumors in our Sarasota center with no associated pain.
