Urologists typically promote their specialty.

Urologists typically promote what they specialize in which is most often, surgery. In the past, we have learned that some do not fully explain the nature and degree of side effects from surgery including impotence, incontinence, strictures, etc.

Also, surgery does not remove microscopic cancer – which is invisible to the naked eye – in the tissue, or margins around the prostate. Even with early stage prostate cancer, there can be cancerous cells in the margins (see the Partin Tables). Proton therapy targets not only the prostate, but also the tissue around the prostate killing any cancer that may be in the margins.

Are there urologists near me that are knowledgeable about proton therapy?

Over the years we have collected information from our members as they've completed treatment and went on to search for urologists that are open-minded about proton therapy as a viable treatment option. These doctors appreciate the fact that patients have done their own homework, moved forward with a treatment based on their own research and comfort level, and are doing well after treatment. Some have gone as far as to research proton therapy personally. Download the list to see if there’s a member recommended urologist near you.

Is your urologist knowledgeable and open-minded about, and supportive of proton therapy?

The Purcell's fairy tale life came to a halt when the doctor diagnosed Pat with prostate cancer. Little did they know that 25 years earlier, a doctor 1,200 miles away risked his entire career to pioneer proton treatment with virtually no side effects. “Against All Odds” follows a couple’s desire to fight cancer and unveils the historical account of a doctor’s passion to discover a better treatment option.
