CCE Prostate Cancer: Johns Hopkins -- Selection criteria

Article

Awards and distinctions that make Johns Hopkins' Brady Urological Institute a Center of Excellence.

Johns

Hopkins University
Baltimore

, Maryland

Awards
Johns Hopkins’ James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute in fiscal 2008 received $9 million in grants from the National Cancer Institute.

Recognition
Patrick Walsh, MD, University Distinguished Service Professor of Urology at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, pioneered the development of the anatomic approach to radical prostatectomy, using nerve-sparing techniques that have reduced the probability of impotence and incontinence in prostate cancer patients.

Walsh in 2004 received the American Urological Association’s highest honor, the Ramon Guiteras award.

One facet of work that connects Alan Partin, MD, to Walsh, and has made him well-known in urology academia, is the eponymous set of tables that has given thousands of men with prostate cancer worldwide a 95 percent accurate prediction of their likelihood of being cured by treatment. The Partin Tables were developed at the Brady Institute in 1993 after Partin studied the course of prostate cancer in hundreds of Walsh’s radical prostatectomy patients. The tables correlate three key pieces of the prostate cancer puzzle: a man’s PSA score, Gleason score, and estimated stage of cancer.
