Welcome to the Department of Urology
Hot off the press!
Translational Andrology and Urology interviewed Dr. James Brooks, who shared his current research in the molecular and cellular characterization of screen-detected prostate cancer, the latest advances and challenges in prostate cancer detection and prognostication, the reason why AS is not widely accepted among patients, and many interesting findings and stories in his research.
Dr. Michael Eisenberg and his colleagues examined data from more than 40 million U.S. births and found links between older fathers and increased health risks for their infants. A paper describing the study was published online Nov. 1 in the British Medical Journal. Michael Eisenberg, MD is the senior author. Urology resident Yash Khandwala, MD, is the lead author. The research is highlighted here, in articles from Time Magazine, Huffington Post, and in a Stanford Medicine press release.
