About Our Practice
Our Commitment to Excellence
We combine multiparametric, 3T MRI and an FDA cleared laser for precision BPH and prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The Prostate Laser Center, PLLC performed the first clinical trial in the US for BPH treatment with the Visualase laser system.
We use a top of the line, 3T Siemen’s Skyra MRI which offers unparalleled prostate imaging, even without an endorectal coil. We use this same MRI for our diagnostic multiparametic MRIs (mpMRIs) and all interventional cases.
Dr. Karamanian is a graduate of an ACGME accredited interventional radiology fellowship. An interventional radiology fellowship is specialized, advanced training in using advanced imaging technologies (MRI, ultrasound, CT, and x-ray) to perform precise, minimally invasive procedures.
We perform focal laser ablation with IV conscious sedation (fentanyl and Versed) to minimize pain. In addition to the standard EKG, blood pressure and pulse oximetry, we also use capnography to monitor CO2 levels for added safety.
We take the time to perform multiple overlapping ablations to minimize the risk of leaving any cancer cells behind and destroy more tissue for our BPH patients.
We provide an easy to use, secure MRI upload capability directly on our website for quicker evaluation, avoiding the hassle and inconvenience of mailing CDs.
