Where to access Cryotherapy
The answer to the question where to get Cryotherapy treatment for prostate cancer is a short one. Very few Clinicians offer this procedure. Firstly, it should be noted that Consultant Urological Surgeons who offer Cryotherapy to their patients will also offer Active Surveillance. Further they will be PROMIS compliant, using mpMRI for diagnosis as well as transperineal biopsy to assess the cancer cells. Offering these services is a prerequisite to being able to offer Cryotherapy. As of today, there are only a few centres offering Cryotherapy, However this is about to change a new charity, Prost8 has been launched with the specific purpose of providing focal therapy (HIFU and Crotherapy) centres around the country. This page will be updated as these centres ‘come on line’. Currently the following Urologists and their teams offer a Cryotherapy service. Remember you are perfectly entitled to ask to be referred to these Consultants and their teams, both on the NHS and privately.
