Is There a “Middle Ground” Between Active Surveillance and Definitive Treatment?
In this article and video on the Grand Round In Urology website, John W. Davis, MD, presents “Focal Therapy for Localized Prostate Cancer: Is There a “Middle Ground” Between Active Surveillance and Definitive Treatment?”. His presentation was during the 29th Annual International Prostate Cancer Update on January 26, 2019 in Beaver Creek, Colorado.
Dr. Davis explores the lack of consistency regarding the definitions and benefits of focal therapy for prostate cancer.
He looks at the treatment options for prostate cancer and defines the sufferers who would gain most from ablative therapy. He also looks at current challenges in this approach and how all options may not be presented to the patient.
