The prostate is a gland that surrounds part of the urethra, the tube that transports urine and sperm out of the body. The main function of the prostate is to produce semen, the milky fluid that transports sperm. Sperm is produced in the testicles, which also produce the main male hormone testosterone. During orgasm, the muscles of the prostate contract to push the semen through the urethra and out through the penis. Prostate cancer is a malignant process originating in the prostate gland. It is the most common non-skin cancer that men face. It is also the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the U.S.To Know more:- http://www.potomacurology.com/prostate-cancer-treatment-in-virginia.aspx

Dr. Pratik Desai, MD - Urologist in Woodbridge | Alexandria VA | Potomac Urology | Scoop.it

Dr. Desai grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania. He went on to attend the University of Pennsylvania for his undergraduate degree and West Virginia University for medical school. He completed his general surgery and urology residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine / Montefiore Medical Center. Dr. Desai is certified by the American Board of Urology and he is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

 

After finishing his general urology training he went on to complete a fellowship in Urologic Oncology. This involved two additional years of training Indiana University – one of the premier institutions treatingurologic cancers. His is one of the few urologists in Northern Virginia to have done this. His approach to kidney cancer is strongly grounded in the philosophy that every attempt is made at preserving maximal kidney function. He has extensive experience in performing partial nephrectomies. With regard to bladder cancer, Dr. Desai has been trained by many of the surgeons that pioneered the Indiana Pouch and neobladders for patients who have aggressive bladder cancer. He gained particular expertise in laparoscopy and robotic surgery, specifically, nerve sparing robotic prostatectomy, robotic kidney surgery, and robotic radical cystectomy.

Dr. Desai has a strong interest in a variety of treatments for prostate cancer in all of its stages. He has presented both nationally and internationally on the subject of prostate cancer and robotic surgery. Dr. Desai has a very strong belief that all men with prostate cancer should be empowered patients with access to all of the latest and most appropriate options for their treatment. While the primary goal of any treatment is the control and cure of cancer, he places a very heavy emphasis on the patient’s quality of life and return to normal function.
