To mimic the great George Schultz cartoon Charlie Brown,
“Good grief, where has this year gone!?”

Holiday message and thanks from Dr. Robert Pugach.


Western States HIFU is pleased to support the annual Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) Conference to be held at the Los Angeles Airport Marriot on September 7 – 9, 2018. The PCRI Conference is an exceptional educational experience for prostate cancer patients, their loved ones, and caregivers.

This is a fact-filled conference where men can find comprehensive information about prostate cancer and become fortified with the newest, clinical proven information to help them make informed decisions about their prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment. I am pleased to educate men with prostate cancer about HIFU – the remarkable non-invasive treatment that can cure cancer without the typical side effects of robotic surgery like incontinence and erectile dysfunction. I look forward to sharing my own HIFU experience when I was treated for prostate cancer last year.

Call the office to learn more.
