New TRANBERG Mobile Service Enables Urologists to Provide Minimally Invasive, Image-guided, Laser Ablation Treatments to Patients without Capital Expenditure

IRVINE, Calif. and ORLANDO, Fla., May 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clinical Laserthermia Systems Americas, Inc. (CLS), a leading provider of office-based, focal laser ablation (FLA) systems for urologists, today announced that AVANT Concierge Urology of Winterhaven, FL, has safely treated its first patients with low-to- intermediate risk prostate cancer using its TRANBERG™ Thermal Therapy System. Under a Mobile Services Provider (MSP) Agreement, CLS provides its FDA 510(k) cleared, TRANBERG Thermal Therapy System in a bundled service offering, with consumable accessories, training, and on-site clinical and technical staff support to AVANT physicians and staff during procedures.

In the US, over one million prostate biopsies are performed every year leading to a diagnosis of prostate cancer for almost 250,000 men. Focal laser ablation of prostate tumors has demonstrated high levels of precision and accuracy with low risk of side effects, such as erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

“We are pleased to see Dr. Parekattil treating his low-to-intermediate risk prostate cancer patients utilizing our minimally invasive TRANBERG Thermal Therapy System,” stated Michael Magnani, president of CLS Americas. “Our mobile service provides urologists and clinics with a cost effective, flexible alternative to requiring a significant capital expenditure in order to provide advance treatment options to their patients.”

“AVANT Concierge Urology is excited to begin offering its patients this safe, minimally invasive prostate cancer treatment in the convenience of our office as an outpatient procedure,” stated Dr. Sijo Parekattil, Director of AVANT Concierge Urology. “Most treatments are quick and take less than two hours. Patients usually have only minor pain and recover quickly.”
