Date:8/31/2013

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2013

Dennis R. Hill, MD has confirmed today that he will be a panelist at the Third Annual Prostate Cancer Symposium titled “The Changing Paradigm of Prostate Cancer: Selective screening, Personalized Treatment and Survivorship in a Period of Rapid Progress.” The event will be Tuesday, September 17 from 5:30 to 8:30pm and is sponsored by the Alta Bates Summit Health Education Center. At this year’s symposium an expert panel of physicians and professionals address the newest treatment options for prostate cancer, and how to pro-actively address quality of life and health issues during and after treatment. Discussions will cover screening, watchful waiting, treatment technology, nutrition, physical fitness as well as possible side effects like incontinence and urinary issues.

Dr. Hill’s presentation will be on High Dose Rate Brachytherapy for prostate cancer treatment vs Surveillance. Dr. Hill comments, “There is a changing paradigm in prostate cancer on several fronts, including screening, diagnosis and treatment. It can be confusing. Hopefully, this panel will not only bring the latest information out, but also some common sense on how to approach this important cancer.” The other physician panelists will present “Rational Approach to Screening and Treatment Decisions in the Era of Genetic Assessment” and “The Urologist’s Perspective on Surveillance vs Treatment” and “The March towards Controlling Recurrent and Aggressive Prostate Cancer.” There will also be panelist presentations on enhancing survivorship quality by a nutritionist and a physical therapist.

Following the presentations there will be a question and answer session with the panelists. The event is open to the public and will be held at Alta Bates Summit Health Education Center, 400 Hawthorne Avenue, Oakland, CA 94609. Reservations are required. To reserve a seat call (510) 204-5804 or send an email to slaveni(at)sutterhealth(dot)org.
