Dr. Eastham's Care Philosophy

I am a surgeon who specializes in nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer, and 'salvage' radical prostatectomy in patients with prostate cancer in whom radiation therapy has failed. My clinical research focuses on improving outcomes (such as cancer control, urinary continence, and sexual function) following surgery for prostate cancer. Together with my colleagues in medical oncology and radiation oncology, we attempt to tailor therapy more accurately to each individual's cancer in order to control cancer spread and decrease treatment-related side effects.

    Dr Eastham performed a Radical Robotic Prostatectomy about 9 weeks ago this past July. Dr. Eastham was very friendly and put me at ease since I was scared to death. He has a fantastic manner about him and really takes all the time you need to help understand everything. He did a fantastic job of calming my fears since I had a PSA of 115 before the Lupron shots. Last week's blood showed a PSA of 0.05 so I hope it stays there. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Eastham at Sloan Memorial. He's the best.!

    I have been cancer free since Halloween 2002. Starting with my first visit prior to surgery until today, Dr. Eastham and MSKH has maintained a consistent relationship with me and my care. The only complaint I have is that the hospital foundation sends too many solicitations and mailing labels.
