    Prostate Cancer and Current Diagnostic Tools, Dr. Parra

    Prostate Cancer and Current Diagnostic Tools, Dr. Parra

    In American men, prostate cancer is only behind skin cancer as the most common form of cancer. Statistics showed in the U.S. there were about 164,690 new diagnoses of prostate cancer and about 29,430 death from prostate cancer in 2018. In their lifetime 1-9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and 1 in 41 of those diagnosed will succumb to complications related to the disease. The five-year survival rate for prostate cancer patients falls to 29% when prostate cancer metastasizes and spreads through the body. This staggering decline in survival rate highlights the serious disadvantages the NCCN recommended treatments have when trying to treat prostate cancer that has spread, become treatment-resistant, and recurrent.

    Prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, is a protein produced by normal, as well as malignant, cells of the prostate gland.

    PROSTATE IMAGING: a new horizon in early prostate cancer detection and treatment

    Recent advances in MRI, including Mp-MRI (“Multi-parametric” testing using a 3T scanner)imaging, have changed everything. The latest generation of MRI machines called 3 Tesla, or 3T machines, scan at a much higher resolution than the earlier machines. They enable radiologists to see all but the tiniest tumors. The tumors that they can’t see almost certainly don’t matter. MRI scanning for prostate cancer could also help a quarter of a million men, maybe up to half a million men a year, to avoid an unnecessary biopsy if the MRI is negative.

    Regulatory Adverse Actions and the Domino Effect

    Regulatory Adverse Actions and the Domino Effect

    Beware of the Domino Effect!!!

    Any form of discipline on your record can create a domino effect that has an impact on which insurers you can participate with, your hospital privileges, and licensure in other states. If you’ve been disciplined in one state, you must report it to all other states you’re licensed in. If you don’t, you can lose your license in those states.

    HOW COMMON ARE DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS AGAINST DOCTORS ?‬‪“NJ Board of Medical Examiners receives around 1000 complaints per year”‬The Power of Licensing BoardsThe “thorn on the side” driving the ire of most doctors is, of course, malpractice lawsuits. A civil action, based on allegations only, brought by an attorney on behalf of a private party in a court of law, seeking monetary damages from that doctor’s insurer, is the most common scenario conjured up when one thinks of “malpractice”. These lawsuits are now so common that special judges are often assigned exclusively to their adjudication.

    How States Regulate Their Doctors -and Why Doctors Should Take Note

    How States Regulate Their Doctors -and Why Doctors Should Take Note

    How States Regulate Their Doctors — and Why Doctors Should Take Note.



    As most doctors consider their practice and skills to be beyond reproach, they will rarely consider that they may need to understand exactly how and why their state’s licensing body doles out punishment to fellow members of their profession. Licensing Board discipline is just not a subject that is taught in Medical School, but doctors investigated and disciplined by those boards often wish they had acquired such knowledge before their practice came under the harsh light of scrutiny.



    The Power of Licensing Boards



    The “thorn on the side” driving the ire of most doctors is, of course, malpractice lawsuits. A civil action, based on allegations only, brought by an attorney on behalf of a private party in a court of law, seeking monetary damages from that doctor’s insurer, is the most common scenario conjured up when one thinks of “malpractice”. These lawsuits are now so common that special judges are often assigned exclusively to their adjudication. The issue of tort reform and the ever-increasing vigilance associated with risk management is familiar to every health care practitioner in the United States today. Many outside of the medical profession, not familiar with health regulations, still believe that the primary penalties for “bad doctors” is a negative verdict or whopping settlement stemming from these actions. However, medical practitioners who have undergone the crucible of a medical board action will quickly advise you that there is nothing as stressful and upending as a disciplinary action by a state medical board. Note that a medical malpractice lawsuit is handled by an insurer and their assigned attorney; a doctor need not expend his own money for either lawyer’s fees or ultimate settlement of the claim. In addition, most health professionals understand that the mere fact that a doctor has been named in a lawsuit for malpractice may have nothing whatsoever to do with any wrongdoing on his or her part.

    Viscosuplementacion: una solucion rapida al DOLOR de Rodilla

    Viscosuplementacion: una solucion rapida al DOLOR de Rodilla

    PACIENTE  CON DOLOR SEVERO EN RODILLA, ES TRATADO CON LA VISCOSUPLEMENTACION BAJO TECNOLOGIA GUIADA DE IMAGEN FLUOROSCOPICA.                          







    El Dolor de Rodilla y la Viscosuplementacion







    DR.ROQUE.NET







    ”La Viscosuplementacion de la rodilla es hoy en día una alternativa para el tratamiento del DOLOR DE RODILLA secundaria a artrosis de la rodilla”. Dijo el Dr. Roque recientemente en una conferencia medica dirigida a médicos y estudiantes.







    Viscosupplementation is a procedure in which a thick fluid called hyaluronate is injected into the knee joint.  it is thought that hyaluronate will improve the lubricating properties of the synovial fluid, reduce the pain from osteoarthritis of the knee, improve mobility, and provide a higher and more comfortable level of activity. If you have tried all other nonsurgical treatment methods and your pain continues to limit your activities, viscosupplementation may be an option.
