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.
