Unlike traditional treatments for Prostate Cancer, like radiation, a new laser treatment targets cancer cells directly without damaging the entire prostate gland. Dr. Samir Taneja of NYU Langone Medical Center explains, “The real appeal of this approach is that it’s non-invasive”, owing to the procedure’s light activated drug and thin needles. To date eighteen Prostate Cancer patients have undergone the medical trial, which is now being tested at five centers nationwide.
