This week: Prostate Cancer Biopsies and Concierge Medicine

By HealthLink on Air • Feb 26, 2016

Typical prostate biopsies use ultrasound to guide surgeons to areas where cancer tends to form. If cancer is growing in another part of the prostate, it can be missed.

The UroNav fusion biopsy system helps surgeons pinpoint areas that may harbor cancer, which are unique to individual patients. It works like a GPS navigation system, directing the biopsy needle to anything suspicious.

Upstate University Hospital urologist Srinivas Vourganti explains what men can expect from the UroNav and also gives us an overview of prostate cancer.

Also this week: One doctor’s experience with concierge medicine, and getting the life you want in our regular “Check Up from the Neck Up” segment.

Join us Sunday at 6 a.m. or 9 p.m. on WRVO.
