Do you know that one in six men will face prostate cancer? And that prostate cancer will account for 25 percent of all new male cancers in 2011? These statistics may be dismaying, but the outlook for men with prostate cancer is better than ever, especially when found early.
On Tuesday, July 19, Crouse Hospital will present nationally known urologist and robotic surgery expert David Albala, MD, in a free community health forum about prostate cancer. The event, open to the public, is from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Free parking is offered in the Marley and hospital parking garages. Pre-registration is required, and can be made by calling 315/472-2464.
Dr. Albala is the Chief of Urology at Crouse Hospital, as well as the Medical Director of the Associated Medical Professionals of NY. He will discuss the signs, symptoms, screening methods and treatment of prostate cancer. He will also address the differences in the latest surgical, non-surgical and minimally invasive robotic surgery treatments for this type of cancer. Dr. Albala is considered a leading national and international expert in laparoscopic and robotic urological surgery. Before coming to Crouse in March 2010, with 19 years clinical and teaching experience, Dr. Albala served as director of the Center of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at Duke University.
