By: Arkansas Urology

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - (September 30, 2020) – Jonathan Rushing of Little Rock has joined Arkansas Urology, the state’s largest private urology practice, as Chief Operating Officer.

Rushing joins Arkansas Urology after having spent most of his career in healthcare management. For the last 14 years he has been at Baptist Health in leadership roles which include managing clinical trials, serving as a Regional and Associate Vice President for Clinic Operations and most recently serving as a member of the Western Region Leadership Team. Prior to working at Baptist Health, Rushing served in various capacities for Easter Seals, Inc. in Texarkana, Texas, which included serving as the nonprofit organization’s Executive Director.

“We are thrilled to have Jonathan Rushing join the Arkansas Urology team as our new Chief Operating Officer,” said E. Scot Davis, CEO of Arkansas Urology. “As we continue to grow and expand our services across the state, it will be an asset to have Jonathan’s experience in many key areas such as leadership, human resources, and operations. We know that his energy and enthusiasm for healthcare will be very beneficial to the employees, physicians and patients of Arkansas Urology.”

A native of Crossett, Arkansas, Jonathan has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Arkansas and will complete his MBA at Southern Arkansas University in the fall of 2020. His community involvement includes serving as the Vice Chairman for Junior Achievement, as well as being actively involved in Parkway Place Baptist Church.

 

“To have someone with such diverse experience as Jonathan is exciting for Arkansas Urology,” said Dr. Tim Langford, president of Arkansas Urology. “His track record with compliance, acquisitions, and day to operations will benefit our staff and patients as we continue to look for ways to grow and expand for all Arkansans.”

Prostate Cancer Risk Factors

By: Arkansas Urology

Getting a prostate cancer screening early and regularly is very important. Prostate cancer is relatively common for men. Fortunately, at Arkansas Urology, we know that prostate cancer if caught early is very treatable. You are good to be proactive and ask questions about your risk factors. Several different factors contribute to this cancer and when it occurs. Risk factors for prostate cancer differ from risk factors of most types of cancers. So who is most likely to develop prostate cancer?

 

Age is the greatest risk factor. The older you are, the more likely you are to develop prostate cancer. About 80 percent of men who reach age 80 will have some prostate cancer cells in their prostate. About 6 in 10 cases of prostate cancer are in men 65 and older. It’s rare in men younger than 40. In the U.S., the average age of a man just diagnosed with prostate cancer is 66 years old.

African American men are more likely to develop prostate cancer than Caucasian men. The cancer is also more likely to be advanced when it is diagnosed. Hispanic men have a lower risk of prostate cancer than white men.

Family history also plays a large role in whether or not you develop prostate cancer and when it occurs. If your father or brother had prostate cancer, your risk is doubled. Actually having a brother with prostate cancer seems to increase your risk more than your father. Multiple family members and the age of their diagnoses also affect your risk. Also, if you have a family history of genes that increase the risk of breast cancer (BRCA1 and BRCA2), it can increase your risk for prostate cancer.

Smoking, diet and obesity have been shown to be factors for aggressive prostate cancer but they aren’t necessarily a factor for low-risk prostate cancer.

Screening for prostate cancer should start earlier if you have risk factors present. At Arkansas Urology, our team of physicians can help you know your risk factors and when to be screened. Give us a call today at 1-800-255-1762.

Most Common Treatments for Prostate Cancer

By: Arkansas Urology

 

Prostate cancer treatment depends on a variety of factors, including age, how advanced the cancer is, overall health and the side effects of treatment. Your doctor will be able to help you decide on the best treatment option for your unique situation. However, a few common treatments include:
 
-Watchful Waiting. If you have a slow-growing cancer or limited life expectancy, watchful waiting is often the preferred treatment. Tests are routinely done, and if uncomfortable symptoms develop, active treatment may be recommended.
 
-Hormone Therapy. This form of treatment limits the supply of hormones that cancer cells require to grow, particularly testosterone. This slows the growth of the cancer, and is typically used in more advanced cases.
 
-Radiation Therapy. Radiation is often preferred when prostate cancer is confined to the prostate area and hasn’t spread, but it can also be used to control pain in more advanced cases. Radiation damages tumor cells that divide quickly, and can be delivered from outside of the body or by implanting material inside the prostate.
 
-Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy can slow or reverse the spread of prostate cancer in more advanced stages. Drugs are injected into your bloodstream to poison the rapidly dividing cancer cells, but the drugs also affect healthy cells in the process. Common side effects include nausea and hair loss.
 
-Surgery. If prostate cancer is caught early and tumors are confined inside the prostate, surgery can be performed to remove cancerous tissue from the body and cure the cancer. Options include open radical prostatectomy and radical prostatectomy. Less invasive options include Da Vinci Robotic Surgery and cryosurgery.
 
At Arkansas Urology, we’re here for you. Our patients’ health has been and will always be our top priority! Would you like to learn more about prostate cancer treatment options? Contact us today to schedule your appointment, or book your appointment online.

Women and Pelvic Health

By: Arkansas Urology

 

Pelvic health is a factor of our lives that many people don’t begin to consider until they start experiencing age and illness. Being proactive is the key to promoting pelvic health and maintaining it through life. Here is our advice for steps you can take right now: 
 
1. Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor
Kegel exercise is the best way to exercise the muscles that contain the contents of your pelvis, which is your pelvic floor. These muscles keep different organs in place, maintain the function and control over the bladder and bowels. Practicing Kegels one to three times daily will optimize your results.
 
2. Maintain a Healthy Body Weight
All factors of health are generally connected in one way or another. As you age, eating healthy and staying active will help prevent a multitude of diseases, and incontinence is one of them. Excess weight puts a strain on the pelvic muscles that often leads to weakening and tearing.

3. Understand the Way the Body Ages
As we age, the body lessens its collagen production leading to decreased connective tissue and more stress on the area. This can be lessened with the addition of some supplements, like glucosamine or chondroitin sulphate.

The important thing to remember about pelvic health is that prevention is key. Consistency with pelvic floor exercises, particularly during pregnancy, and a generally healthy lifestyle are the best ways to promote and maintain pelvic health.
