What is

Prostate Cancer?

Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer in men and the second most common cause of cancer deaths in men. Almost as many men die of prostate cancer as women die of breast cancer. Fortunately, breakthroughs in 3T multiparametric MRI now allow for better diagnosis and precise treatment of prostate cancer.

What is


Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) often occurs as men age, making it difficult to urinate. A weak stream, delayed initiation, and waking up at night are all symptoms. With 3T multiparametric MRI, we can now precisely target and treat the problem areas with no hospital stay, less trauma, and 1/20th of the average blood loss of the surgical "gold standard."

I was diagnosed with Advanced Stage II Prostate Cancer in August 2016. I researched various treatments with 7 or 8 doctors, and decided on Laser Beam Therapy. Then, I heard about Laser Ablation Therapy and contacted Dr. K. What a refreshing experience for me. I met a man with total honesty, he is to the point -straight forward, and very caring. Same with his Assistant, Samantha. Dr. K performed Laser Ablation on me December 4, 2016. May 4, 2017, my MRI showed Dr. K was able to remove 100% of my tumors, some very large.; so, I am Cancer Free today. I have no side effects. Doctor K. is a wonderful Doctor in every respect and has allowed me to have an unimaginable quality of life today. I am so grateful to more

Dr. Karamanian and the staff at the Prostate Laser Center provide a level of care and concern that is second to none. I came to Dr K in very poor shape in need of some kind of prostatic intervention. Dr K gave me as much time on the phone as needed to fully understand the procedure and prepare me for the post operative recovery period. My results have been spectacular and Dr K supported me through the most challenging parts of my recovery with a warmth and kindness that for me was unprecedented in the medical more

I could not have had a better Doctor! Dr Karamanian is compassionate, sympathetic and explained every step of the procedure before we got started in great detail. Nurse Samantha & Ravina were also wonderful and endearing. On our follow up visit the next day we went over results of what was done. A very beneficial outcome! Cancer is GONE!!!!!!read more
