Contemporary Management of Incident Prostate Cancer in Large Community Urology

May 13, 2019

The Urology Center of Colorado (TUCC) and its physicians contributed to a study recently published in the Urology section of Elsevier’s Practice Update. The Objective of the study was, “To characterize the contemporary management of prostate cancer patients in large community practices. The optimal management of incident prostate cancer has changed in the last decades to include active surveillance for a large number of men. At the same time, many community practices have merged into larger groups. The adoption of evidence-based guidelines is of increasing importance, but poorly understood in this newer practice setting.” (practiceupdate.com)

Dr. Jones of TUCC states, “The Urology Center of Colorado physicians instituted an active surveillance protocol for low and intermediate risk prostate cancer greater than 10 years ago. We offer high level counseling and shared decision making for all our prostate cancer patients and that is reflected in this study.”
