While prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, it grows very slowly in most men. Yet it can be a serious condition.
Diagnosis and treatment
We diagnose and stage cancers using the most current professional guidelines. We perform diagnostic procedures using sonographic and fluoroscopic imaging, as well as many types of biopsies, in our state-of-the-art facility. Biopsies can be performed with a local anesthetic. For patients who wish to be sedated, however, our facility is fully accredited for the procedure, and our board-certified anesthesiologists will offer full sedation.
Our approach is tailored to the individual, and our treatment options and recommendations will always take into consideration a patient’s age, general health, lifestyle and schedule—even particular fears or concerns about treatment outcomes and side effects. Consultations are discrete, in a quiet setting, and follow-up appointments are designed to minimize anxiety, in a friendly, comfortable environment with minimal wait time. When complex initial treatment is warranted, our academic affiliations allow patients access to the Northeast’s top oncology surgeons and radiation treatment centers.
