Home >> About Us
At The Prostate Health Center we specialize in the successful treatment of all types of urological cancer for the surrounding areas of North Carolina. Since the incidence of prostate cancer is much greater than that of other urological cancers, a large percentage of the patients we see are those with prostate cancer. Our goal is to provide quality treatment that can help you return to your normal activities as soon as possible. We know that the quality of healthcare providers can differ and ultimately you have control of deciding which provider to receive treatment from. Medicine today has become super specialized and the more specialized you are the more proficient you are with a specific technique. At The Prostate Health Center we pride ourselves with the ability to perform treatment programs that are superior to other clinics in the area. Our proficiency is not only linked to the frequency of prostate and other urological cancers treated but the technology we use to treat these disorders. By specializing in just prostate and other urological cancer, we are able to focus solely on the best treatment for these cancers and invest in the most cutting-edge technology and equipment.
What makes The Prostate Health Center different?
In the field of oncology, there are many different ways centers can treat cancer. Many centers treat cancer through the use of radiation therapy to target and kill cancer cells. These centers can address a wide variety of cancer patients. However, every cancer is different. As a result, it is difficult for a single treatment center to address all the various types of cancers under one roof.
Our facility has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally accepted standards of care.
Our personnel are well qualified through education and certification to administer your radiation therapy treatments.
Our equipment is appropriate for the treatment you will receive, and our facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
We specialize in prostate cancer.
The urological practices associated with the Prostate Health Center offer all types of individualized treatments for prostate cancer including robotic, laser, endoscopic or open surgery. The Prostate Health Center offers under one roof all types of external beam radiation and brachytherapy using the latest techniques and most modern equipment. It will soon offer medical oncology including hormonal manipulation/depravation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, genomic/genetic based treatments and other new treatment methods as they develop. What sets us apart from other treatment centers is our ability to focus on a limited number of cancer types. This allows us to provide patients with customized treatment programs that are specifically formulated to each patient's case. While other treatment centers may use a specialized treatment program for all of their patients, there is "no one size fits all" at The Prostate Health Center.
There are also complications and side effects from almost every treatment option used to combat cancer. The side effects on a particular patient have to be taken into consideration when recommending a treatment prescription and every effort is made to avoid or minimize such difficulties. In the event there are unavoidable side effects, specialized supportive services will be available including bowel, bladder, and erectile function rehabilitation as well as specialized physical therapy services and nutritional counseling.
