Focal Therapy included in top international urology book – Campbell’s Urology

12 January 2016

Congratulations to Hash Ahmed and the prostate cancer team for having their pioneered treatments, Focal Therapy, being included in Campbell’s Urology.

Campbell-Walsh’s urology textbook is the pre-eminent urological reference. It is widely respect as the ‘urological bible’ across the world and purchased most urologists in North America as well as many internationally. Many physicians state that once something is in Campbell-Walsh, it is standard of care.

The focal therapy paradigm, pioneered by the UCL prostate team, has now been introduced into the epitome, and written by Hashim Ahmed and Mark Emberton. This is a great achievement which places this treatment innovation firmly into the standard care arsenal available to urologists and patients as an alternative to the harms that sometimes occur from radical surgery and radiotherapy.
