High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Coming To Florida Very Soon!!

HIFU of the prostate is a new and exciting treatment available for men diagnosed with prostate cancer. It is approved throughout the world and is currently undergoing FDA trials here in the USA. It preserves erectile function in over 90% of those treated and has virtually no blood loss. It does not involve radiation so it can be repeated if necessary but usually is a one time treatment.

I currently perform HIFU in Nassau, Bahamas and Cancun, Mexico with US HIFU. All of my patients have had excellent outcomes so far. I am now one of the few certified HIFU surgeons in the US.

HIFU will hopefully become available in the US in the next year and I will be the only certified HIFU surgeon along the east coast of Florida from Palm Beach to Daytona.

Please visit my website at Osler Urology for more information. In addition, I will be giving an informational lecture soon in February or March 2010 at the new Crane Creek Medical Center in Melbourne, Florida.

Happy New Year!

New Website Addresses

I have exciting news! Our new webpage is available at the 3 below addresses. All to the same website.

My practice is ever expanding and has grown in leaps and bounds since I started at Osler Medical last May.

Below is my Bio from the new website:

Prody Borboroglu, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Board Certified, American Board of Urology

....received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1994. As a recipient of the Health Professions Scholarship Program with the U.S. Navy, he went on to complete an Internship in General Surgery at Naval Medical Center San Diego in 1995. From 1995 to 1996, he served as a General Medical Officer with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit in Okinawa, Japan where he was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal and the Meritorious Unit Commendation. He was accepted into the highly respected Urological Surgery residency program at Naval Medical Center San Diego. He served as a urology resident from 1996 to 2000 and then as a urology chief resident from 2000 to 2001, during which he published numerous peer reviewed journal articles, was awarded the highest honor for clinical research at the 48th Kimbrough Urological Seminar, and was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal. He then went on to further strengthen his urological surgical skills, serving as a fellow in kidney transplantation and laparoscopy at the University of Maryland in Baltimore from 2001 to 2002.

After completing his training, Dr. Prody then served as an attending Urologic Surgeon and Chairman for the Department of Urology at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth in Virginia from 2002 to 2008. He became Board-Certified by the American Board of Urology in 2004. He practices all aspects of adult urology, including urologic cancer, impotence, urinary incontinence, and minimally invasive treatments for benign and malignant urological conditions. He has special interests in minimally invasive treatments for female and male urinary incontinence, BPH or benign prostatic enlargement (including expertise in the Greenlight Laser), urinary stone disease (including ureteroscopy, laser lithotripsy and ESWL), and in-office "no scalpel" vasectomy.

With his educational obligation to the U.S. Navy fulfilled, Dr. Prody and his family moved to Satellite Beach, Florida in April 2008. He and his wife Arden enjoy spending time with their 2-year-old twin girls Sydney and Ashlyn.

I will post more soon.

First Blog


This is my first blog posting. I am an Urologist in the US Navy working at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP). I am board certified by the American Board of Urology and have further fellowship training in kidney transplantation and laparoscopy. I have been stationed at NMCP since 2002. I will try to post interesting urologic cases here on a weekly basis.
