November 10, 2020
Vituro Health partner physician Dr. Soroush Rais-Bahrami went on WVTM 13 in Birmingham, Alabama to discuss the importance of men getting screened for prostate cancer and the availability of treatment options if detected early. His appearance on the news was in relation to the Today Show weatherman Al Roker announcing that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Dr. Rais-Bahrami is a founding member of the Program for Personalized Prostate Cancer Care, working closely with other faculty from the UAB Departments of Urology, Radiology, Oncology, Radiation Oncology, and Pathology. He brings experience in advanced prostate imaging, image-guided biopsy targeting techniques, and focal therapy. He and Dr. Jeffrey Nix, another Vituro Health partner physician lead the Program for Personalized Prostate Cancer Care at UAB.
Dr. Rais-Bahrami also has a strong interest in developing, improving, and employing robotic and minimally-invasive techniques for the treatment of urologic malignancies. He specializes in the management of all urologic malignancies and will see patients with prostate, kidney, adrenal, testis, bladder, ureteral, and penile cancer.
Early detection of prostate cancer can lead to easier management of prostate cancer care and more minimally invasive treatment options that can reduce risk of side effects. Vituro Health’s partnership with UAB Urology allows Dr. Rais-Bahrami and Dr. Nix to offer High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for the treatment of prostate cancer. HIFU offers reduced side effect risks like erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.
