Dr. Ayyagari received his Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Biology from Swarthmore College in 1996.

What is TULSA PRO? A minimally invasive treatment for malignant and benign tissue.

TULSA PRO, or Transurethral Ultrasound Ablation of Prostate, is a revolutionary, radiation-free, and minimally invasive procedure. It’s tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy and prostate condition, with meticulous pre-procedure planning by physicians. During the procedure, active cooling of the urethra and rectum safeguards nearby critical structures, minimizing the risk of side effects. This personalized approach offers a promising solution for prostate treatment with reduced risks and optimal precision.
