The Prostate InstituteOur primary focus is accurate diagnosis because it is the key component in understanding the health needs of our patients. Once an individual diagnosis is made, we can then provide options that include minimally invasive therapies, including cryotherapy, as a means of treatment that increase survivability and may reduce side effects and complications.
The Institute's mission is:
Early detection through the use of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) tests, digital rectal exams (DRE), and Color-Doppler Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS) exams.
An emphasis on minimally invasive treatment options with maximum survivability potential.
A means by which the public can increase their awareness of prostate cancer and receive appropriate education within one distinct forum.
Empowerment of the patients, noting the importance of early detection and assisting them in making decisions for their care and treatment by providing the best possible information regarding their individual situation.
Using a multidisciplinary and multi-team approach allows the patient to have a full spectrum of knowledge and a complete understanding of the disease and treatment, presented in a manner that alleviates much of the fear and anxiety often associated with this disease.
The Institute is located on the campus of Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura, California. Providing a full spectrum of state-of-the-art modalities, the hospital acts as a complement to the needs of patients coming to the Prostate Institute of America.
