Brief Summary:
The purpose of this research study is to collect information on a new treatment of prostate tissue participants with intermediate risk prostate cancer using a medical device called the Poseidon System. The Poseidon System is intended to ablate prostate tissue in areas of the prostate where cancer has been identified. The medical device delivers thermal energy in the form of water vapor to the prostate tissue through the urethra. Previous research has shown successful prostate tissue ablation. Additional research may help show successful ablation of the prostate tissue where cancer is located.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Serious device related adverse events [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events, serious and non-serious, related and unrelated, will be collected on all patients enrolled [ Time Frame: Up to 5 Years ]
  2. Changes from baseline in the Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Questionnaire (EPIC) [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  3. Changes from baseline in the International Index of Erectile Function Questionnaire (IIEF) [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  4. Changes from baseline in the International Prostate Cancer Symptom Score (IPSS) [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  5. Changes from baseline in the Male Sexual Health Ejaculatory Function Short Form Questionnaire (MSHQ-EjD) [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  6. Participants evaluated for Gleason pattern 4 or higher disease on the treated side identified from biopsy [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  7. Participants evaluated for biopsy negative on the treated side [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  8. Changes from baseline of the PI-RADS (Prostate Imaging - Reporting and Data System) Score by characterizing the effect of the ablation on the treated side from MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  9. Changes from baseline with the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) [ Time Frame: 180-day and through study completion, an average of 5 years ]
  10. Changes from baseline with the size of the prostate via MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) [ Time Frame: 180-day follow-up ]
  11. Evaluating the target tissue being ablated via MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) [ Time Frame: 7-day follow-up ]
  12. Participants evaluated for Gleason pattern 4 or higher disease on the contralateral side identified from biopsy [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 5 years ]
  13. Participants evaluated for biopsy negative on the contralateral side [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 5 years ]
  14. Number of retreatments with the Poseidon System [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 5 years ]
  15. Time to curative treatment, in particular, radical prostatectomy or radiotherapy [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 5 years ]
  16. Disease specific survival defined as time to death due to underlying disease [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 5 years ]
