Minimally Invasive Outpatient Procedure Eases Prostate Enlargement
A man’s prostate gland grows with age. For Thomas, that meant almost hourly bathroom breaks that kept him from enjoying quality of life he’d earned after a career as a nurse. Medications failed to manage his symptoms. He completed exhaustive research on surgical approaches and alternatives. Then, he came to Stanford Health Care, one of the few health centers in the country to offer Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE). This video is intended for use by staff of Stanford Health Care.

When it Matters Most: High-Risk Patient Controls Colon Cancer Risk with Regular Screenings
Sara always suspected she was at high risk for colon cancer. Her mom had colon cancer three times, and both of her grandparents had the disease. Because of her family history, she had her first colonoscopy in her 30s. An all-clear result put her on a schedule to repeat the test in five to eight years. But Sara wondered if this was frequent enough. She came to the Stanford Health Care Digestive Health Center for a second opinion. At her first appointment, Dr. Uri Ladabaum, MD, Director of Stanford’s GI Cancer Prevention Program, allayed her fears. “He said, ‘We’re going to develop a plan for you. It’s going to be okay,’” said Sara. “Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of death from cancer, but the majority of deaths from colorectal cancer are preventable,” said Dr. Ladabaum. “Screening is proven to decrease the risk.” A routine colonoscopy allows doctors to both detect and remove small growths called polyps, all during one outpatient procedure. By removing polyps early, before they are left to develop into cancerous lesions, colonoscopies can prevent colon cancer from ever developing. Because of her family history, Dr. Ladabaum recommended she have a colonoscopy every year, not every five to eight years. Sara has faithfully followed his advice, coming to Stanford annually, despite living three hours away. Her tests had all been clear until a year ago when Dr. Ladabaum found and removed a medium-sized polyp. If left to grow, she said, the polyp would have become cancerous. “Colon cancer is completely preventable, so why not go and get a colonoscopy?” Sara asked. “I can’t control if I get a polyp, but I can control if we get it out in time.” Learn More: Colonoscopy: https://stanfordhealthcare.org/medical-tests/c/colonoscopy.html General Endoscopy: https://stanfordhealthcare.org/medical-clinics/digestive-health-endoscopy-suite-redwood-city.html Advanced Endoscopy: https://stanfordhealthcare.org/medical-clinics/digestive-health-endoscopy-suite.html Dr. Uri Ladabaum: https://stanfordhealthcare.org/doctors/l/uri-ladabaum.html

When Heart Disease Is Inherited, Stanford Treats The Whole Family
When Monica’s dad died suddenly at age 68, it was a wake-up call for Monica and her siblings. She was referred to the Stanford Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease. “I always thought something was off, but no one could really tell me what until coming to Stanford,” said Monica, who had a history of heart irregularities. The team of cardiologists, genetic counselors and clinical nurse specialists at Stanford used her family history, medical tests and genome analysis to determine a diagnosis; Monica’s heart showed minor symptoms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
