As the name implies, Concierge MedTravel is a medical travel service. Concierge arranges appointments, international travel, transportation, hotel and hospital accommodations for clients.
The company caters to men in need of a minimally invasive prostate cancer treatment, specifically an alternative prostate cancer treatment known as Ablatherm High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) that is not available in the U.S.
Concierge sends customers to St. Josef Hospital, a medical center with a team of 20 urological medical specialists, located at the University of Regensburg in Germany. Concierge will coordinate with your local physician, who will continue to provide care once treatment is complete.
Ablatherm HIFU treatment uses focused ultrasound waves to precisely target and destroy cancer cells. Approved since 2000 in the EU, HIFU technology allows urologists to destroy the prostatic tissue without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. There is no radiation, surgery, prostatectomy or cryotherapy. When compared to traditional treatments Ablatherm HIFU has fewer side effects and less risk of impotence and urinary incontinence.
