Prostate Cancer
has Newer Treatment Options

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer to affect men, as well as their second most common cause of cancer-related death. With breakthroughs in 3T multiparametric MRI, doctors can provide better screening options, more accurate diagnoses, and treatment options with a lower risk of side effects compared with traditional treatments.

Relief from BPH
is Easier Than Ever

Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) can make it harder to urinate as you age. You could have trouble starting, have a weak stream, or wake up at night. Using advanced, 3T MRI, we can precisely identify the areas of tissue overgrowth, and precisely treat problem spots less invasively and without a hospital stay.

Prostate Laser Center, as a part of the HALO Diagnostics team, can now forge a path with cutting edge prostate cancer and BPH treatments. The combination of science and technology is allowing us to do what was previously only dreamed of.

I am 69 years old. I had my FLA procedure on Februrary 1, 2023. At that time I was completely obstructed (bph) and was using intermittent catheters. By mid April I was able to stop using tamsulosin. I have a level of function that I have not had for over 20 years and no complications. The staff at Prostate Laser Center was terrific. Special thanks to Dr. Harman and nurse Donnie.

I'm 57 and now 7 month cancer free PSA back down under 4. The FLA procedure was painless for me with no side effects after healing. The catheter was the only downfall of this procedure for me. But worth the discomfort to get where I am now. I went through 3 local doctors at a high standard hospital trying to get answers to why my PSA numbers were rising. Of course antibiotic little to no benefit to lower PSA. The normal biopsy came back ok no cancer. So finally I talked to the second doctor into allowing me to pay for my own MRI and then they found cancer in the upper half of my prostate where the biopsy couldn't reach.( Why do a blind biopsy to not find cancer? Waste of time ,money and lives.) By the time I got to Dr. K my PSA was 22 and my gleason was 3+4=7. Dr K said he wished I would have been there 6 months earlier. He felt I had a good chance that the FLA treatment would work but was very open that there is a chance it might come back. I also suffered from BPH. He said he would have to take a lot of my prostate in order to get all the cancer and to relieve my BPH. As many have said Dr. K and staff are above and beyond in all aspects of this procedure. It is sad to me that the medical world is not getting behind this. I went to an oncologist that specializes in prostate removal and had done over a 1,000 removals. And when I mentioned FLA he looked at me like a deer in the headlights. Folded his folder up and said let me know if I can do the procedure and walked out. I know there is still a chance the cancer could come back. But by doing this FLA procedure I still have other options left. I Thank God for the opportunities we have in America and that God put special people like Dr. K and staff here to take care of us. Jay G

Although Dr. Karamanian determined that I was not a candidate for laser ablation, he called me personally the very day he received my MRI, answered all questions, and advised me that the radiation recommended by my prostate oncologist was probably the best option for me. I appreciate the time he spent with me (over 2 phone calls) and his candid advice.
