Support and Education Starts with Making Connections
Speaker: Dr. Clive Shkedy is Medical Director of Radiation Oncology at Houston Methodist Hospital, Sugar Land.
Topic: “Developments in Prostate Cancer Therapy from a Radiation Perspective.”
Radiation is a choice for men with localized prostate cancer. It is also an option for secondary treatment for men who have a rising PSA following surgery. Over the last 20 years, radiation therapy has evolved. Improved technology has enabled therapists to deliver the required doses with improved precision limiting the exposure of healthy tissue surrounding the prostate. Men are able to choose between receiving radiation in small doses over a period of around a month or with higher-level doses administered with far fewer sessions.
Dr. Shkedy attended medical school at the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa and completed his residency in radiation oncology at Princess Margaret Hospital which is part of the University of Toronto. He is a member of the American Board of Radiology and a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. He is also affiliated with Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.

In case you weren't able to attend, we have an archive of past meeting discussions...
We meet on the 2nd Monday of every month, except August. There is no charge and we welcome companions and families to join us as well.
Monthly meetings provide a forum for medical experts to inform group members about treatment options and post-treatment issues. Though we do not offer medical advice, we do feel it is important for men to take control and make informed decisions based on factual information to plan a course of action.
Whether you are recently diagnosed, are currently under treatment, or wish to learn more about prostate cancer you are welcome to attend.
