“Since first being founded in 1996, Arkansas Urology has been and will continue to be transformative leaders in the delivery of prostate cancer care by providing first in class diagnostic and therapeutic options, along with cutting edge research,” Dr. Tim Langford.
Does Arkansas Urology treat Prostate Cancer?
Yes. We are the leader in urology and prostate cancer care in the state, as well as the surrounding region. Since 1996, we have been providing world-class care right here in Arkansas. During this time, we have expanded to 14 locations across the state, which includes opening the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center on our main campus in Little Rock, back in 2009.
What are the treatment options at the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center?
At the APCC, we work with our patients and their families to determine the best prostate cancer plan for their specific health conditions and individuals needs. This can include:
• External beam radiation therapy, also called radiotherapy, which involves a series of daily treatments to accurately deliver radiation to the prostate. A carefully focused beam of radiation is delivered from a machine outside the body.
• Prostate brachytherapy
• Hormone therapy
• Active surveillance
“Our focus is Prostate Cancer. Nothing more, nothing less,” says Dr. Jack Wang, who leads the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center. Last year, Dr. Wang gave approximately 11,261 treatments — which means, on average, he treated 46 patients a day, at the APCC in 2020.
Why chose Arkansas Urology?
No one has performed more prostate cancer radiation treatments in Arkansas than the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center. That’s one of the reasons why we are the best choice for patients. We have top-notch urologists and surgeons who do nothing but prostate cancer. We have invested in the best equipment and latest technology. Our focus is Prostate Cancer. Nothing more, nothing less. The name Arkansas Urology is synonymous with quality and we have some of the most respected physicians across the country. The best days for us are when we hear a patient walk down the hall and ring that bell on the way out the door. What a win! They’ve beaten cancer and won’t be back until it’s time for their annual check-up. We love to see the smiles on their faces — and their family’s faces.
What is Arkansas Urology doing to help?
In 2020, we launched the Arkansas Urology Foundation, led by Chris Shenep. The mission of The AU Foundation is to connect Arkansans of all ages to comprehensive healthcare and wellness through education, collaboration and advocacy, inspiring and empowering all men and women to live longer, healthier and happier lives thanks to the world-class care offered at Arkansas Urology. We raise funds and heighten awareness for programs and services we provide across Arkansas. A major aspect of The AU Foundation is providing men with access to health care with free 10-point health screenings at our men’s health clinics across the state.
