Active Holistic Surveillance for Prostate Cancer, Part 1
July 11, 2019
Dr. Aaron Katz, Chairman of Urology at NYU Winthrop, was an early proponent of Active Holistic Surveillance for prostate cancer, which engages diet and lifestyle to enable men to avoid aggressive treatment with potentially-debilitating radiation or surgery.

What innovations have been made in treatments for men with advanced prostate cancer? What are the downsides of hormonal treatment? Is testosterone replacement safe for men with “Low T”? Dr. Katz shares the surprising results of studies evaluating the advisability and safety of testosterone for men with heart disease—and even after treatment for prostate cancer.
