Can anyone recommend a medical oncologist in the Los
Angeles area that specializes in prostate cancer?
Age 52

At Diagnosis of PCa, had Gleason 9 and normal PSA

Radical Prostatectomy on July 7th, 2010 by Dr. Fagin using daVinci

25% to 50% nerves spared on left, 100% spared on right.

Continent from day one.

Pathology showed postive margins and extension beyond gland, including seminal vesicals and lymph nodes. Stage upgraded to T3b.

Bob Leibowitz and Mark Scholz are both in LA. Also UCLA and City of Hope have some great prostate cancer programs...
