That commitment extends to active participation in promoting public awareness and screenings that will help reduce the incidence of deadly cancers and other health issues that our medical technologies can help diagnose and treat. Below are several of the patient information sites that we provide to help patients learn more about their condition.

About Colorectal Cancer (CRC)

Colorectal (colon) cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer with early and regular screening. Screening can help catch polyps before they become cancerous, and colorectal cancer can be cured when it is caught early. CRC is preventable, beatable and treatable. Learn more at our CRC awareness site.

About Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

The prostate begins to enlarge as a natural process of aging. In some men, the increase in size causes urination problems, a condition called Benign (non-cancerous) Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Today, many men suffer from the symptoms of BPH. If left untreated, it holds considerable risks. Learn more about BPH symptoms and treatment at our BPH awareness site.

About Hysterectomy Options

Today's hysterectomy choices include innovative, minimally invasive procedures that can be modified by your doctor to address the treatment and relief of your symptoms. These new advanced surgical techniques reduce the pain and minimize the scarring from surgery and get you back to your normal routine more quickly. Learn more at our Her Health site.
