CLS Americas Announces Agreement with AVANT Concierge Urology to Treat Prostate Cancer Patients with TRANBERG™ Thermal Therapy System


CLS Mobile Service Model Enables Minimally Invasive FLA Treatments to Urologists without Capital Expenditure

IRVINE, Calif. and ORLANDO, Fla., April 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clinical Laserthermia Systems Americas, Inc. (CLS), a leading provider of office-based, focal laser ablation (FLA) systems for urologists, today announced a Mobile Service Provider (MSP) Agreement with AVANT Concierge Urology of Winterhaven, FL to begin using the CLS TRANBERG Thermal Therapy System to treat patients with low-to-intermediate stage prostate cancer. Under this MSP Agreement, CLS will provide its 510(k) cleared TRANBERG Thermal Therapy System, with consumable accessories, training, and on-site clinical and technical staff support to AVANT physicians and staff during procedures for a case fee.

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 generally produces high levels of precision and accuracy with low risk of side effects, such as erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.


“I am very pleased to begin this collaboration with CLS Americas with the goal of providing my patients with targeted, minimally-invasive, prostate tumor treatments that offer the best outcomes,” stated Dr. Sijo Parekattil, Director of AVANT Concierge Urology. “Focal therapies have proven effective and beneficial to patients, and focal laser ablation shows great potential with its ability to create precise ablation zones and tight margins.”

“AVANT Concierge Urology is one of the most advanced and state-of-the art urology facilities and practices I’ve seen in the US,” noted Michael Magnani, president of CLS Americas. “CLS Americas is honored to work with Dr. Parekattil and AVANT to implement our TRANBERG system as a flexible, cost- effective service for patient treatments that works well with AVANT´s well-established business model.”

TRANBERG™ Thermal Therapy System
The TRANBERG Thermal Therapy System can be configured for MR/US fusion-guided procedures using real-time tissue temperature measurements for precise therapy and ablation control. It includes a desk-top mobile laser unit, innovative non-cooled laser applicators, tissue temperature probes, and procedure-specific accessories. The TRANBERG system can be deployed in either a transperineal or transrectal approach. The TRANBERG system is 510(k) cleared for soft tissue ablation, such as prostate. A TRANBERG FLA Animation Video of the system and procedure is available to watch.
