Support and Education Starts with Making Connections
Speaker: Dr. Lara Matheson
Topic: ”Developments in Initial Treatment for Prostate Cancer”
One of the most difficult decisions a new prostate cancer patient has to make is to choose between active surveillance or proceeding with initial therapy. The two primary options for initial treatments for prostate cancer are surgery and radiation therapy. Our speaker will address this subject from the perspective of a Urologist trained in robotic surgery.
Dr. Matheson is affiliated with Houston Metro Urology. She graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering. She then earned her medical degree from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. While at Vanderbilt, she completed her training in the Department of Urologic Surgery. There she received advanced training in robotic, laparoscopic, and reconstructive surgery. Her clinical interests include the treatment of prostate cancer, kidney surgery, kidney stones, and reconstructive surgery for both male and female patients.

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.
