TUCC physicians are known throughout the country for their highly specialized skills. Here are a few links to PDF files and video clips of recent news stories that featured TUCC physicians, patients and our center.
September was Prostate Cancer Awareness month, but doctors want you to be aware all year round.
The National Cancer Institute estimates there will be more than 238,000 new cases of prostate cancer this year.
Dr. Mark Jones with the Urology Center of Colorado was on 9NEWS Sunday Morning as well as cancer survivor, Kelsey Canady.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Colorado today. Over 1,200 Coloradans put on their blue shoes, shirts and hats to recognize these men as participants in The Blue Shoe Run for Prostate Cancer. The fourth annual Blue Shoe Run, benefiting The Urology Center of Colorado (TUCC) Foundation, is one of the top fundraisers for prostate cancer screening and research in Colorado.
Taking place just north of Sports Authority Field at Mile High, The Blue Shoe Run featured a 5K run/walk, 1.5-mile family walk and kids fun run. The winning 5K times included Gerald Romero who completed the race in just 17 minutes.
Congratulations to three TUCC physicians who were recently recognized as 5280 Magazine Top Docs: Elias Hsu, M.D., Jesse Mills, M.D., and Brett Abernathy, M.D.
There's just no substitute for patients stepping into an active role in advancing research. In this video, Dr. Larry Karsh, Director of Clinical Research at The Urology Center of Colorado, explains the important role patients play in clinical research to advance treatment options for prostate cancer.
In 2003, urologist Richard Augspurger, MD, and healthcare administrator Bob Asinof developed a plan to create a singlesite, full-service urology practice. So they began pitching their vision to individual practices in the Denver area.
“Bob and I saw where medicine was headed, and we knew that large-group practices were the future,” said Augspurger, TUCC’s medical director. “We wanted to be big enough that we could capitalize projects, because it’s very difficult to do that in a small group. We also wanted to offer the highest-quality care to our patients, and one of the best ways to do that was in a single location. Finally, we wanted to offer integrated ancillary services to our patients and capture the revenue [technical fees] that we were previously sending out.”
TUCC physicians and clinical investigators Lawrence Karsh, M.D., and Jesse Mills, M.D., presented the results of a national clinical evaluation of the treatment of Peyronie’s Disease at the American Urological Association 2013 Annual Meeting. Three phase 3 studies have been conducted to examine the safety and efficacy of collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) in subjects with Peyronie’s disease (PD). The effect of CCH on change in penile curvature deformity from baseline to end of study was analyzed by the subjects’ duration of disease or degree of plaque calcification.
Treatment with CCH resulted in improvements in curvature deformity regardless of duration of disease or level of plaque calcification; although small differences were noted within the subgroups, they are not expected to be clinically meaningful.
When Bill Meyn lost his fight against prostate cancer three years ago he left behind a wonderful family.
The Meyn family wants all men out there to know that getting a PSA test at the 9 Health Fair takes only a matter of minutes and can prevent a lifetime of heartbreak and loss for your family.
According to Dr. Mark Jones, urologist with The Urology Center of Colorado, the best thing men can do for their health is be screened for prostate cancer. If prostate cancer is detected at an early stage, it is survivable and treatable. Dr. Jones has performed hundreds of robotic prostatectomies to treat prostate cancer. In this story, 9News examines the advancements in robotic surgery and the importance of annual prostate cancer screenings.
March Madness is here. Time for brackets, basketball and the perfect excuse to sit around and watch hours of games - vasectomies. In this clip, TUCC Men's Health Specialist Dr. Jesse Mills offers his Final Four picks to Al and D-Mac on The Drive FAN Sports Radio show.
The bladder is an amazing organ with a very special design. November is recognized as National Bladder Health Month and expert urologists at The Urology Center of Colorado (TUCC) have put together a list of bladder health facts all Coloradans should be aware of.
The statistics are stark. One in six American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
The disease is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Colorado today. More than 3,000 men in our state will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012.
Men are often reluctant to be poked and prodded by a doctor. However, a prostate cancer screening takes less than 10 minutes and the results can be life-saving. Prostate cancer screenings include a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test and a digital rectal exam.
TUCC is contracted with all major insurance companies. We look forward to providing you with clinically advanced, compassionate urologic care.
