When people are in need of urology care, they want access to the most skilled physicians and the latest treatment innovations. The board-certified urologists at Bon Secours Urology, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), are among the nation’s leaders in state-of-the-art, advanced urology therapy. They perform all of their procedures at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, NY.
Among other therapy, Bon Secours Urology offers minimally invasive surgery for kidney stones, kidney tumors and bladder tumors.
Additionally, patients receive expert care for male and female urinary incontinence, reconstructive penile, vaginal and bladder surgery, neurourological issues, and urodynamic therapy.
New cutting-edge screening tools are now available to treat prostate enlargement and related conditions, bringing relief and restoring health:
Rezum Therapy for Enlarged Prostate
Bon Secours Urology is one of only a few providers in the nation equipped to offer this groundbreaking minimally invasive treatment. Small amounts of steam are delivered to the enlarged prostate, and the vapor’s thermal energy damages cells causing the obstruction. That reduces the prostate’s size and symptoms. Conveniently, only one treatment is needed.
Bon Secours Urology’s Christopher Dixon, MD, has the most clinical experience in the nation using the Rezum technique and was instrumental in its development and FDA approval.
MRI/Ultrasound Fusion-Guided Prostate Biopsy – Faster Screening, Detection and Treatment of Prostate Cancer
The physicians’ vast expertise in identifying and treating prostate cancer was recently bolstered by the acquisition of the KOELIS Trinity® system. This premier imaging tool targets a biopsy area far more precisely than other techniques.
It combines a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan with an ultrasound image. Studies show that MRI fusion-guided biopsies are highly accurate and reduce the need for repeated biopsies, ensuring earlier diagnosis and treatment. These urologists have national reputations and extensive backgrounds of practice, teaching and research in adult urology:
Mitchell Fraiman, MD is the Chief of Urology at Good Samaritan Hospital. He specializes in adult urology and minimally invasive surgery for kidney stones, prostate enlargement and kidney and bladder tumors. He received Top Doctor in New York honors from Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. from 2015 to 2018.
Christopher Dixon, MD’s expertise includes prostate disease; reconstructive urology, including urethral stricture disease; and urologic trauma. He was instrumental in the development and approval of the Rez?m procedure, and is one of the nation’s leading experts in MRI and ultrasound fusion-guided prostate biopsies.
