Focal Therapy vs. Radical Prostatectomy

Steven N. Gange, MD, FACS, Director of Research and Education at Granger Medical Clinic/Summit Urology Group, conducted a propensity score-matched study comparing  Focal Therapy vs. Radical Prostatectomy. Focal therapy is a non-invasive approach to removing small tumors within the prostate. This technique spares most of the normal tissue while leaving the remaining gland intact. Radical Prostatectomy is the classic way of removing the prostate which includes removing the prostate gland and the surrounding tissue. Until now, a propensity score-matched study comparing focal therapy (FT) for localized prostate cancer to radical prostatectomy (RP) has never been reported.

New Patient Appointment Request

I have seen Dr. Gange for a number of years and developed the typical symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. During my annual urologist visit, Dr. Gange laid out my options. After doing some personal research, I elected to have the Urolift procedure performed by Dr. Gange on an outpatient basis.

The procedure was uncomfortable but not particularly painful compared to other surgeries I have had. Recovery was relatively quick and I was back at work after two days of rest.

I did experience some significant discomfort associated with urination but was counseled that I was not drinking enough water. Once I increased my consumption of water, most of the discomfort went away and I was back to normal after about two weeks.

In the wake of the surgery, the urgency to urinate has gone away. The interval between trips to the bathroom has lengthened significantly such that I usually get up to urinate only once each night and sometimes not at all.

Having talked with others who have had more drastic prostate surgery, I feel that the Urolift procedure was much less stressful and the results were as hoped for.
