Genesis Teams up with the ACS to Fight Cancer

Genesis at the ACS Discovery Gala 2014

A team of Genesis Urologists and Radiation Oncologists that included Drs Edward Cohen, Reza Shirazi, Paul Neustein, Tahir Ijaz, Damon Smith and Donald Fuller participated in the annual ACS Discovery Celebration Gala in San Diego.

Genesis Healthcare was proud to team up once again with the American Cancer Society for the 2014 Discovery Celebration Gala & San Diego Invitational, which took place June 1 & 2 at The Grand Del Mar Resort.

The theme of this year’s event was “Teaming Up Against Cancer” and the event raised essential funding for the American Cancer Society’s mission, which includes research, education, advocacy, patient programs and service. Genesis Healthcare shares this mission and brings together some of San Diego’s most experienced cancer specialists—experts in Urology, Radiation Oncology and Robotic Surgery to offer our community the most innovative FDA approved and investigational therapies currently available.

Some innovative treatment options offered by Genesis Healthcare include CyberKnife SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy) also known as Stereotactic Radiosurgery, IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy), SmartArc technology and Calypso IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy)—Calypso is available in San Diego only through Genesis Healthcare. These are all highly precise, minimally-invasive cancer treatment modalities that use targeted radiation to destroy tumor cells. Genesis Healthcare is proud to offer these powerful therapies that work with exceptional accuracy, sparing healthy tissues/organs resulting in fewer complications after treatment.

In a joint venture with UCSD (University of California San Diego) Genesis Healthcare has also spearheaded an Active Surveillance Program for prostate cancer, which is a concept that has increasingly emerged in recent years as a viable option for early-stage prostate cancer patients who decide not to undergo immediate surgery or radiation therapy.
