Book: Definitive Guide to Prostate Cancer
Interview: Aaron Katz, MD
Professor of clinical urology
Director, Center for Holistic Urology, Columbia University
When it comes to prostate cancer, there's a long history of conflicting advice. Most recently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended that healthy men donít necessarily need regular PSA blood tests. So, what should men do?
Recently, IU urologist Michael Koch appeared on the show to speak out against this recommendation.
For another professional view, Sound Medicine's Kathy Miller, MD, chats with Aaron Katz, a urologist at Columbia University. Dr. Katz's new book is called The Definitive Guide to Prostate Cancer.
The book offers strategies for slowing the growth of prostate cancer cells and to regain a sense of hope.
The book discusses conventional and "integrative" therapies, meaning treatments designed for the individual patient.
Dr. Katz directs the Center of Holistic Urology and an associate professor of clinical urology at Columbia University.
