Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Coogan "I basically treat general urology problems, but I specialize in urological cancers -that is prostate, kidney, bladder, testes cancer. One of the unique things about prostate cancer - it comes in a lot of different what we call grades. So some cancers spread very quickly, but other cancers are very slow to spread and aren't likely to spread at all. Carefully selected patients - you can just watch them and make sure that the disease doesn't change in any way. And they typically won't need any treatment at all. We've really minimized the side effect of many of our treatments while really maximizing and improving their effectiveness. And the benefits of this are to the patient in speeding their recovery while maintaining the same efficacy that is the success of the treatment. Probably the most rewarding part of urology is seeing these patients long-term, and watching them - not only understand their disease process and how to prevent it possibly - but also living a full quality of life after such treatments."
