Curing Cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson and Epilepsy With Focused Ultrasound

What if we could improve the health and happiness of millions of people around the world? Stephen J. Monteith, MD, a neurosurgeon at Swedish Cerebrovascular Center talks about Focused Ultrasound, a revolutionary early-stage, non-invasive therapeutic technology with the potential to transform the treatment of many medical disorders (including Cancer, Alzheimer disease, Epilepsy and Parkinson Disease) by using ultrasonic energy to target tissue deep in the body without incisions or radiation.

Currently, High intensity focused ultrasound is an approved therapeutic procedure to treat uterine fibroids in the United States. Research for other indications is actively underway, including clinical trials evaluating the effectiveness of HIFU for the treatment of cancers of the brain (Video), breast, liver, bone, prostate, as well as parkinson (Video), Alzheimer disease (Video) and Epilepsy.
