EDAP TMS provides high-end training to urology surgeons, OR staff and technicians using Ablatherm® Fusion, Focal One® and Sonolith® devices. The Company is registered as an official training entity in the United States and various other countries.
The urology surgeon receives a HIFU training manual prior to visiting one of the qualified HIFU reference sites to observe a complete treatment process performed by a certified proctor treating his own patients. HIFU training materials include a training program, a training manual, a complete HIFU literature review and a device user manual.
The urology surgeon will treat his own patients in his hospital with the assistance of an EDAP TMS Application Engineer.
When a urology surgeon has performed a certain number of HIFU treatments with / or without proctoring, he is certified as HIFU user. A specific "HIFU User" certificate is issued confirming the surgeon's ability to use the HIFU device.
When a urology surgeon has performed a sufficient number of HIFU treatments, he may become an EDAP TMS certified HIFU trainer and proctor.
Nurses and OR staff are provided with a dedicated HIFU training program supported by a specific documentation.
