Dr. Robert Pugach, HIFU Treatment Doctor

Posted on in HIFU

b2ap3_thumbnail_dr-pugach.jpg"As a urologist whose practice is dedicated to minimally invasive urology, HIFU was an exciting addition to my practice. I became involved with HIFU 7 years ago and have seen remarkable results in my patients. The technological advances that we have seen with HIFU over the years translate to better treatment for prostate cancer with dramatically fewer side effects when compared to radical surgery (including robotic surgery) or the various forms of radiation. HIFU patients achieve excellent outcomes and typically return to normal activities quickly. Perhaps the best example of HIFU I can describe is when a close family member of mine was diagnosed with prostate cancer several years ago. He was 60 years old at the time and chose HIFU to treat his cancer. He is now cancer free and he avoided the side effects of other treatments including incontinence and erectile dysfunction. I am a strong believer in this remarkable technology."

Dr. Robert Pugach received a Bachelor of Science Degree from New York University in 1974. After completing medical studies at the College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, he went to New York University-Booth Memorial Medical Center where he completed general surgery residency. He then did his urology training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center in New York, finishing in 1985. Dr. Pugach is currently Medical Director for Pacific Coast Urology Medical Center.
