FAQ about HIFU for prostate cancer treatment

What does HIFU for prostate cancer cost depend on?

A focused ultrasound surgery cost is affected by the following facts:

  • A country where HIFU therapy is performed. A cost of HIFU for prostate treatment can differ 10-40% depending on the country because of its internal general price policy. For instance, the price for HIFU in Germany is about 15-20% higher than in Poland, but about 5-10% lower than in Switzerland. The HIFU cost in South Korea is about the same level than in Germany. The most expensive HIFU therapy will be in the USA — about 2-3 higher than in European or Asian countries.
  • A doctor's experience. If a specialist has been performed a lot of HIFU procedures, has numerous certificates, and is a member of prestigious organizations, they may ask about higher focused ultrasound surgery cost.
  • Additional expenses. Some hospitals already provide package HIFU cost for prostate cancer treatment (with medical tests, doctor's fee, transfer, language assistance, etc.), but others can give price only for HIFU procedure.
