Target MRI Fusion Prostate Biopsy
Prostate health is at the forefront of urologic care at Palm Beach Health
Network. Detecting it usually entails a biopsy of the prostate when the surgeon suspects an issue. Historically, finding the exact location of cancer in a prostate gland has been a challenge. Conventional TRUS prostate biopsy techniques are
referred to as “blind” biopsies since physicians typically cannot easily view the specific location of any abnormal tissue. Targeted MRI/Ultrasound Fusion biopsies are one of the latest technologies available in the detection and management
of prostate cancer. Now, using the Artemis 3D imaging and navigation system, our team is able to better identify and more accurately biopsy suspicious prostate cancer areas.
Da Vinci Xi Robotics Assisted System
In addition to the prostate, our surgeons also perform urologic procedures of the bladder, kidneys, adrenal glands or ureters, robotically with the Da Vinci Xi robot. The Da Vinci Xi robot allows our robotically trained surgeons to perform complex urologic
procedures using minimally invasive techniques. As a result, our patients receive the highest quality of care and surgical outcomes for any of their urologic needs.
Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Our program treats both men and women suffering from bladder and bowel incontinence and/or pain in the pelvic region. Pelvic floor muscles may become weak, tight or spastic, as a result of disease, surgery, childbirth or other trauma.
Treatment options include:
- Strengthening exercises
- Pelvic floor muscle stimulation
- Biofeedback for muscle training
- Internal and/or external therapeutic massage and myofascial release
- Education in bladder retraining, dietary irritants and relaxation techniques
- Development of an individualized home exercise plan
A physician’s prescription is required for physical therapy. Pelvic floor rehabilitation is covered by most insurance companies.
