Dr. Franklin Gaylis, Active Surveillance

Dr. Franklin Gaylis, Medical Director for the Genesis Comprehensive Prostate Cancer Center. 

 

Active surveillance (AS) is the practice of closely monitoring slow, indolent forms of prostate cancer with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood tests, digital rectal prostate exams and, potentially, biopsies. 


There is a large group of men with a form of low-grade prostate cancer whose long-term survival is not impacted by non-treatment.  With this new model, we were able to increase rates of surveillance to benefit patients through use of provider education and a standardized report card.
