Is it the right treatment for me?
Echotherapy is an innovative non-invasive treatment alternative using therapeutic ultrasound (HIFU).
Deciding whether echotherapy is the right treatment for you.
Echotherapy is a non-invasive way of treating patients and avoids scars and risks related to the incisions of surgery or minimally invasive techniques.
To determine whether echotherapy is the right option for you, it is important to thoroughly read through all information you can access and to get professional advice. Only a licensed professional can give you an independent advice. Find someone who actually has the technologies you are interested in, because not all physicians will be able to advise you on innovative techniques if they have never practiced them themselves.Echotherapy for fibroadenoma Echotherapy for thyroid nodules Echotherapy for varicose veins
Which physicians can help you
Depending on your medical problem there are different types of specialists you can ask for advice. Sometimes the specialties are different from one country to the other. For varicose veins, most patients first require an ultrasound scan. This can be done by a phlebologist, angiologist, radiologist or in a clinic for vascular surgery, either by the surgeon himself or a sonographer.
For patients with thyroid nodules endocrinologists, nuclear medicine experts or thyroid surgeons are good physicians to speak to. Patients with breast fibroadenoma often turn to their gynocologist and then to a radiologist or a specialised breast surgeon.
