TEN YEARS OF CYBERKNIFE SUCCESS FOR PROSTATE CANCER
Since 2013 we’ve been the only urology practice within 100 miles to treat prostate cancer patients with CyberKnife. This non-surgical, pain-free treatment option delivers radiation to cancer with sub-millimeter accuracy. “We think it’s the best tool for sparing healthy tissue which means our patients can maintain control of their bladder and remain sexually active following treatment,” explains Dr. Peter Fried, medical director for Radiation Services.
Together, our dedicated team has treated more than 3,000 patients, some traveling thousands of miles for this specialized approach.
Congratulations on this 10-year anniversary to:

PAIN FREE ED TREATMENT AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE
Treating erectile dysfunction doesn’t have to be painful. Or costly. ED is typically caused by poor blood flow in the penis. The Urology Group offers a pain-free therapy that stimulates blood flow by applying low-intensity shockwaves to several points on your penis. It feels like a light tapping—nothing more. Over time, these 15-minute treatments have shown to increase blood flow so that erections can occur more naturally.
Most men experience improvement after just six treatments, while others get even better results after 8 to 12 treatments. You can save on low-intensity shockwave therapy with these bundle options:

PATIENT STORY: MEET KATHY
When a routine doctor visit led to a diagnosis of urothelial cancer, Kathy was dumbfounded. She was always took care of her health. Her urologist, Dr. Stephen Bennett, told her that the standard treatment at the time for urothelial cancer was removal of a kidney and the tube leading from it. But Kathy didn’t want to spend the rest of her life worried about the health of her remaining kidney. If the cancer spread, would she eventually need that kidney removed as well?
Under Dr. Bennett’s watchful eye, Kathy took her time deciding what to do, and the waiting paid off. A new treatment called JELMYTO was approved by the FDA during the wait. Today, thanks to JELMYTO, Kathy is enjoying the life she had always planned. She is cancer free with both kidneys intact. Watch Kathy tell her story. Watch how JELMYTO works here.
