Glenn Weisinger

"The nurses and staff were skilled and attentive, and I felt I was in the best hands possible.”

 

Glenn Weisinger - 2011For 48-year-old Glenn Weisiger, getting prostate cancer wasn’t a matter of “if.” It was a matter of “when.”


Although the diagnosis came as a surprise, Glenn was as prepared as anyone could be. He’d been having routine PSA (prostate-specific antigen) tests done annually since he was 40, with results in the ‘normal’ range. But when his primary care physician also conducted a DRE (digital rectal exam) in September 2010, he detected a small lump and recommended further testing through biopsy, which detected cancer.

 

After doing research about treatment and prognosis, Glenn consulted with and chose David Albala, MD, chief of urology at Crouse, who is nationally and internationally recognized for his expertise in robotic surgery. “Just six months before I was diagnosed, Dr. Albala came to Syracuse from Duke University. His reputation and bedside manner convinced me to have my procedure at Crouse.”
