Dr. Samay Jain, assistant professor and medical director of The University of Toledo Medical Center’s Urology Clinic, and Dr. Ajay Singla, professor and director of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at UTMC, presented on prostate cancer screenings and treatment options at several lectures this fall.



Tie One On at UT offered four lectures at the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center as part of its Prostate Cancer Awareness Lecture Series. Each lecture was followed by free screenings.

Jain discussed updates related to prostate cancer screening as well as future technology in the field during the first lecture Aug. 14.

The topic of the second lecture Sept. 18 was “Prostate Cancer Treatment: From Robotics to Radiation.” At this event, Jain discussed different treatment options for prostate cancer, including robotic surgery and Edge radiosurgery. UTMC is one of five medical centers in the world that have the Edge radiosurgery system, which is extremely precise and non-invasive.

Singla joined Jain Oct. 16 for the third lecture on how to manage the effects of prostate cancer treatment. For the last lecture in the series, Jain spoke about new treatment options for advanced, recurrent and metastatic prostate cancer.

In addition, Jain gave an informative lecture Sept. 7 at the Woodlands at Sunset House in Toledo. Jain dispelled the idea that incontinence is something people have to live with and provided treatment options.
