"What differentiates PGH from the rest is its capability to appoint first-rate medical institutions, professionals, and other resources in the United States. Since my decision to have surgery, I have passed three tests and the results indicate that I am totally cured. My last medical test result and the conversation I had recently with my doctor about living my life normally pushed me to write to you. Great job. Thank you!"
- Filip, Prostate Cancer, Poland
Filip was diagnosed with prostate cancer during a routine physical examination. After researching different surgical approaches, treatments and potential secondary long-term effects, Filip decided to use the Diagnosis and Verification Treatment Plan service with PGH before determining his next steps.
After being contacted through Filip’s local provider, PGH immediately initiated a review of his case. The Diagnosis Verificationand Treatment Plan was performed by multiple specialists including the Chief of the Urology Department at a top hospital in the US. Their suggested treatment plan included minimally invasive robotic prostatectomy, the da Vinci® Surgery surgical system, which offered a quicker recovery and return to normal activities. Filip underwent his surgery at a European hospital with a successful outcome. Through PGH, Filip benefitted from having an expanded medical team to make confident and informed decisions about his course of treatment.
