Sioux Falls, SD – During National Cancer Prevention Month in February, Urology Specialists reminds everyone to speak with a urologist about their individual risk for urologic cancers and whether screening is recommended. Due to the recent pandemic, cancer screenings saw a dramatic decrease. In fact, an estimated 9.4 million screening tests that normally would have taken place in the U.S. in 2020 did not occur. The lack of testing in recent years has caused concern among physicians that individuals will be diagnosed with cancers at more advanced stages, potentially leading to more severe consequences.
Beginning Friday, 4/1/22, our Sioux Falls office will close at 4 PM on Fridays only (8:00 AM – 4:00 PM). We will remain open from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday through Thursday. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Urology Specialists’ own Dr. Lauren Wood Thum recently led a discussion on the symptoms and causes of overactive bladder and fecal incontinence, along with a patient’s treatment options. Dr. Wood specifically focuses on Medtronic’s InterStim and NURO systems, and why these cutting-edge treatments are good options for many patients. Check out the full video below!
