Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 09, 2014
Dr. Kia Michel of Comprehensive Urology is pleased to announce the launch of a new website for the Integrated Prostate Cancer Center of Los Angeles, a facility dedicated to the treatment of prostate cancer. The new website can be found at ProstateCancerDR.com.
“The goal of the Integrated Prostate Cancer Center is to present patients with a wealth of information about prostate cancer and prostate cancer treatment, while also providing state-of-the-art procedures and supportive treatments,” said Dr. Michel, medical director at the new facility.
At the Integrated Prostate Cancer Center of Los Angeles, Dr. Michel’s team of prostate cancer specialists have access to some of the newest technological breakthroughs in prostate cancer treatment. These include da Vinci robot-assisted prostatectomy and MRI targeted biopsies.
During da Vinci robot-assisted prostatectomy, a surgeon’s hand movements are perfectly replicated by tiny robotic arms. This allows for a prostatectomy that is safer, more precise, and more effective than ever before. An MRI targeted biopsy is a procedure that increases the accuracy of traditional biopsies by an enormous amount, thus reducing the potential for false-negatives.
“These methods are incredibly useful in the treatment of prostate cancer,” says Dr. Michel. “With these procedures and screening methods, we can ensure that patients receive the best treatment by the best urologists with the highest possible accuracy.”
The Integrated Prostate Cancer Center of Los Angeles also offers complementary treatments to patients with prostate cancer. Complementary treatments such as acupuncture and massage therapy are useful supplements in the fight against prostate cancer. Other complementary treatments provided by the Integrated Prostate Cancer Center include:
- Nutritionists who focus on prostate cancer preventative measures
- Physical therapists who provide support measures
- Alternative healing modalities such as energetic healing
“Having a relaxed and healthy state of mind is essential when dealing with cancer,” says Dr. Michel. “Our whole-person approach helps patients preserve a healthy mind and body, which makes their fight against prostate cancer a little easier.”
Kia Michel M.D. earned his medical degree at the University of Washington School of Medicine and completed his residency at UCLA. He has also been recognized as a National Pfizer Scholar. As one of the founding members of the reputable Comprehensive Urology Medical Group, located in the Cedars-Sinai Medical Towers in Los Angeles, California, Dr. Michel treats a host of urologic diseases. Dr. Michel performs his outpatient surgical procedures at La Peer Health Systems.
