Focused Ultrasound Therapy: Improving Patient Care and Lowering Costs

Virtual Briefing on this Medical Innovation Primed for Congressional Support

February 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Today, healthcare innovation centers on advancing breakthrough treatments to improve patient outcomes. Focused Ultrasound is a revolutionary, noninvasive therapy that can treat multiple diseases and has the potential to address many more with further R&D funding. Focused ultrasound has transformed care for patients suffering from serious conditions like Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, prostate cancer, uterine fibroids, and cancer pain. It is being explored for more than 150 other diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, depression, opioid addiction, and various cancers. For Veterans and service members (half of whom struggle with pain management), women (75% of whom face uterine fibroids), and countless others facing limited treatment options for conditions costing $1.78 trillion per year, focused ultrasound offers tremendous promise.

Join us to learn how, for many patients, this noninvasive, non-pharmacological treatment is a significant improvement over conventional therapies and reduces overall costs. This briefing will educate about the established benefits of focused ultrasound,  its potential in other areas of healthcare, and the value of additional research investment to advance this field of medicine.

Speakers Include:
Dr. Jessica Foley, Chief Scientific Officer, Focused Ultrasound Foundation

Patient and Family Nurse Practitioner for Veterans:
Beverly McGowan

Physicians and researchers in the field of pain management, mental health and cancer:
Dr. Matthew Bucknor, University of California San Francisco
Dr. Noah Philip, Brown University and VA Providence
