Khanty-Mansiysk is the first Siberian city where Ablatherm-HIFU ( High Intensity Focused Ultrasound ) is installed to treat prostate cancer. This new top of the bill treatment offers new minimal invasive curative treatment oportunities to patients with localized prostate cancer and puts the hospital on the world top list of prostate cancer centres. Ablatherm-HIFU offers safe minimal invasive treatment to patients with localized prostate cancer who cannot or do not want to have radical surgery. The results are excellent and comorbidity is minimal. Nerve sapring and potency preservation is possible in selected patients. 2 top-urologists from Khanty-Mansiysk ( Dr. Elomenko M. Stanislavovich and Dr Purckhvanidze M. Sergeïvich ) were trained in this revolutionary technique by Dr Chris D'Hont from the AZ Middelheim hospital in Antwerp - Belgium.
According to the website of the city the population last Oct.1 2006 had increased to over 62,000 so by now it must be around 70,000 people. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:51, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
We shouldn't use our own guesstimates in articles, but sourced numbers (such as those given on the official website) can be added. If you choose to add this particular number, make sure not to overwrite the Census data, as those are the only numbers that allow for meaningful comparison of populations between different cities.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:54, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
