Dr. Gomella Interviewed about Gary Papa Run

The 11th annual Prostate Health International Gary Papa Run took place on Father’s Day at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Team Jefferson Kimmel Cancer Center took part in the race to raise awareness and funds to support the fight against prostate cancer.

In their coverage of the event, 6 ABC interviewed Dr. Leonard Gomella, chair of the Department of Urology at Jefferson.

Dr. Gomella explains: “We are able to find the disease much earlier than ever before so in some respects we are finding more cancer but we are also learning that not every man with prostate cancer needs to be treated.”

Prostate Cancer Treatment at Jefferson

If you are diagnosed with prostate cancer, the experienced urologists and surgeons in Philadelphia at Jefferson Hospitals’ Multidisciplinary Genitourinary Oncology Center and the Kimmel Cancer Center can carefully guide you through the available treatment options that range from active surveillance where patients are closely monitored to active treatment with surgery, radiation therapy or other modalities. The multidisciplinary approach works with patients and their families to address all your medical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Our Multidisciplinary Genitourinary Oncology Center is one of a handful of centers in the U.S. dedicated to advanced patient care for prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular and other urologic cancers.
