With more than three million cases annually in the United States, prostate cancer is considered very common. After skin cancer, it is the most common cancer in men. In fact, men have a one-in-eight chance of contracting prostate cancer in their lifetimes. Prostate cancer and thyroid prostate cancer patients come to our center, which is renowned for its use of Space OAR gel. This advanced material is implanted by Dr. Kuruvilla in the operating room and goes a long way toward reducing rectal discomfort during a long course of prostate cancer radiation therapy. As a prostate cancer doctor, Dr. Kuruvilla was part of the initial team to offer prostate seed implants as a prostate cancer treatment in North Florida. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men who are diagnosed do not die from it.
The cancer center of Putnam has a long history of innovation and was an early a doctor in a use of PET Ct scanning since 2000s for diagnosis, staging, and treatment planning.
