Advanced Prostate Cancer

Recommendation for a post radiation salvage surgeon

Looks like I am having a recurrence and have started to look into options. I will have a scan to confirm the cancer is still confined and want to be ready to move forward. I live in Maryland near Johns Hopkins but will travel anywhere to find and experienced competent surgeon. Would love to hear about your experience.

Can you do better than Johns Hopkins?

I don't know, any experience with them?

Only on a consulting basis...I live in Boise, ID.

Even though he is retired, Dr. Patrick Walsh responded to my email inquiries and made firm, unambiguous recommendations about treatment. Google him to find his email.

You are near one of the top 3 Centers for Excellence, in regards to Prostate Cancer---you are one lucky man. Many travel 1,000 miles to go to Hopkins.

What are the other three?

I would say closest Mayo satellite facility, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Levine Cancer Institute, Duke, and of course MD Anderson--there are others depending where you live on the eastern side of USA. They all have Prostate Cancer Oncologists, not just Oncologists.
