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.

See what people are saying about Prostate Laser Center

Had FLA with Dr. Karamanian for Gleason 3+4 confined to the prostate. Throughout the process I was impressed with his knowledge and skill. He did a remarkable job of removing the lesion area and also generous margins around it. It's a long procedure, and I appreciated that he took the time to ensure he removed the lesion and margins. 1/3 of the prostate was removed, yet I experienced no negative side effects. The 6-month follow-up (MRI plus I also did PSMA-PET at my discretion) shows no cancer, and 0.65 PSA. FLA is unknown to many MD's. My Urologist and PCP had not heard of it. I'm not impressed with my Urologist, so no surprise there. My excellent PCP was curious and looked into it later. He thought it would be an excellent choice for treatment.

I would like to heartily endorse the Prostate Laser Center (PLC) of Houston for their expertise and professionalism during my bout with prostate cancer and BPH. I can't say enough about Dr. Harman efficient and personable service. As the events below unfolded, he provided me with his mobile phone number with expectations for me to call if there were any questions or concerns they could address. I found Dr. Harman delivered "bad news" well and was very responsive to my questions and concerns during recovery. He was knowledgeable, articulate, personable, professional, and compassionate. Dr. Harman stayed on the phone with me for several extended periods following emails to him, inquiring, answering, and assisting. I have not found this level of support in my dealings with other medical professionals. PLC is committed to improving men's prostate and urinary health. The ablation was effective and I am blessed to be free of cancer and BPH now!

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in the fall of 2023 and given 2 choices (surgery or radiation) for treatment by my urologist. After some research and a recommendation from a friend, I contacted the Prostate Laser Center in Houston. From the first conversation with Dr. Harman by phone, the procedure and 6 mo. follow up about a year later, Dr. Harman and staff were amazing and displayed a genuine concern for my health and quality of life. I can't thank them enough........I highly recommend the Prostate Laser Center as an option when considering treatment.
