Cutting-Edge Prostate Cancer Detection
Holy Family Hospital now offers targeted 3D MRI/Ultrasound Fusion Biopsy for the detection of prostate cancer. With targeted MRI/Ultrasound fusion biopsies, MRI prostate images are fused with real-time ultrasound images to create 3D high-definition color images that enable physicians to accurately detect abnormal prostate tissue. Targeted biopsy of that specific area, results in a highly accurate method for the early detection, diagnosis and monitoring of prostate cancer.
Advanced Treatment for Enlarged Prostate (BPH)
Holy Family Hospital Urologists are trained in the new UroLift™ procedure for the treatment of enlarged prostates. The new FDA Cleared UroLift™ procedure lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra, and preserves sexual function. It is the only BPH procedure that does not require cutting, heating or removal of the prostate tissue.
