Dr. Rastinehad's Care Philosophy

I think it is important that we as the physicians are taking care of the entire patient not just fixing the patients urologic problem. The goal of the care that I provide is to take into account the entire patient which encompasses their mental as well as physical condition and then we address that in the context of the disease process.

    I was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, and I can't thank Dr. Rastinehad enough for the amazing job he did with the surgery and for making me feel healthy again! I feel normal again and I am so extremely fortunate that I was able to find him. He is direct, thorough, skilled, and friendly, yet very professional. Even after post-op, he answers all my questions and is responsive. Highly recommended. Again, I feel fortunate to have been treated by him.

    Dr. Rastinehad says...

    For three decades, urologists have diagnosed prostate cancer using the same methodologies. There have been no reliable imaging tools to aid in the diagnosis and currently prostate cancer is the only solid malignancy that is still diagnosed by random biopsies.

    Dr. Rastinehad's prostate cancer team has now incorporated state-of-the-art imaging to help visualize suspicious areas in the prostate for cancer. Dr. Rastinehad has also authored and implemented clinical trials of new techniques in the diagnosis and treatment of localized prostate cancer. Most recently, he is the principle investigator for a phase III clinical trial using MRI/Ultrasound fusion technology to improve prostate biopsy techniques.  Using information from the prostate MRI, we can now target specific areas to better diagnose and quantify a patient's prostate cancer.  This new clinical approach is helping to lay a foundation for the evaluation of a new technique, Focal Therapy, which only treats the diseased portion of the prostate.  

    Dr. Rastinehad says...
