Louisville CyberKnife recently had prostate cancer survivor and former patient, Al Bissmeyer, speak at an Us TOO prostate cancer support group chapter meeting.
The meeting, which takes place on the second Wednesday of every month, was held December 9th at Jewish Medical Center East in Louisville.
Mr. Bissmeyer was a guest speaker at the meeting and spoke about his experience with prostate cancer and being treated with the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System. Al was diagnosed with prostate cancer in the spring of 2014 and decided to go to Louisville CyberKnife for treatment. He was very pleased with his decision because he was treated in only five sessions, had minimal side effects, and appreciated the knowledge and compassion of the Louisville CyberKnife patient care team.
After Al shared his story, he answered questions from the meeting attendees, which included some who have been treated for prostate cancer.
