Have you seen Dr. Michael J Dattoli?
Dr. Dattoli was a Godsend!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on February 18th, 2018
At 48 years old my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He was highly recommended to to us by friends in NY who had great results. My husband was treated by him in Florida at his beautiful facility. All his equipment was state-of the-art. We just came back from a visit for another yearly follow up and my husband is totally free of cancer with a PSA of ZERO. All this without hormones and lack of bladder and sexual disfunction. We opted for Dr. Dattoli because it did not feel like a "teaching hospital ", which we could have gone to in NY. Thank you Dr. Dattoli
A "PIECE OF CAKE" AMIDST PERFECTION
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on August 31st, 2017
At age 52, I really didn't have any other medical ailments until prostate cancer got me. It was "aggressive". I quickly learned of the side effects associated with surgical removal and dismissed that option. I reside in Madison, Wisconsin and was fortunate to have a friend tell me about Dr Dattoli. He called me one evening and spent up to an hour and a half going over treatment options. This is very rare in the field of medicine today. Moreover, Dr Dattoli was very clear and open minded as to treatment options and extremely knowledgable about every option I had heard of and more. Well I am now a graduate of the Dattoli Cancer Center (yes, you get a diploma upon completion of DART). Everything was so smooth that I've never had to think. Only yesterday, I underwent the seed implant which Dr Dattoli said would be a "piece of cake" and it really, really was! Wouldn't even know that it happened unless someone told me. I've made numerous friends who also came from around the country and world having researched the many treatment options available. The technologies at Dattoli Cancer Center are second to none with DART having been pioneered there (extremely precise, no side effects!). Meanwhile, nothing is as precise as the seed implant performed by the best brachytherapist in the world! I can't recommend Dr Dattoli and his wonderful facility enough!
Brilliant Caring Doctor

I was treated for prostate cancer back in 2001 and have been going back for follow up for 16 years. The care of treatment and the knowledge that Dr. Dattoli has makes his practice known world wide and he has lectured all over the globe.
KUDOS TO DR DATTOLI FROM EUROPE
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on July 4th, 2017
I searched the globe to find Dr Dattoli and I'll be forevermore happy that I did. He pioneered brachytherapy (seeds) while in NYC (renowned Sloan-Kettering) and more recently developed DART, a form of external radiation, so precise that it can hit a dot (mm3) while moving! There is no rival anywhere in the World and I really looked. I researched Protons which are less precise than Dattoli's and unable to "hyperdose" select cancerous lesions as can be done with both DART and then Palladium seeding. I had an aggressive cancer and surgery would leave cancer cells behind where the prostate was or in lymph nodes. Surgeons still wanted to cut and I'd need radiation anyway compounding complications from the surgery (urinary leakage and sex gone) ! I also looked into HIFU/Cryoablation/ Cyberknife, none of which could treat surrounding tissues or the nearby nodes. With other focal treatments (HIFU, Cryo, MRI LITT), I learned that repeated treatments are necessary and that with each treatment you add side effects. With cancer, I learned that it's best to get rid of it first go round. 3.5 years later and my PSA is 0.001 and no undesirable bowel, bladder or sexual problems. Just returned from my exam in Paradise.
A WOW TO DR DATTOLI FROM TORONTO
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on June 28th, 2017
When diagnosed here in Canada I came to learn that your prostate cancer is either "Early Stage" and you don't need treatment or "Advanced Stage" and it's too late for any treatment but hormones! When you're "in between" they really want to cut. I scoured the world to find the best doctor and the best facility. Cost was no object as this was my life and I obviously wanted to be cured with the least amount of side side effects. Surgery was out as I heard too many horror stories. I looked at Protons, although they really are no better than regular radiation and many studies actually show worse rectal and sexual problems with Protons than other forms of radiation. I then found Dr Dattoli on a prostate website where he was highly recommended for BOTH cure and minimal side effects. He pioneered seeding long ago at a famous hospital in NYC as well as developed a pinpoint form of radiation called "DART". This is truly the only place in the world that uses real DART and that's important. He even called me one night and spent over an hour discussing what he would recommend for my particular cancer. That's a rare thing to have a renowned doctor call you! While at the Dattoli Cancer Center and Brachytherapy Research Institute in Sarasota, Florida I met men from everywhere in the U.S. and world having various stages of prostate cancer and were either undergoing treatment or had been treated many years to decades ago. Not a single person was unhappy and all who had been treated told me that they would come to Dr Dattoli if they had to do it all over again. I am now a proud recent graduate of the Dattoli Center and have experienced ZERO side effects...no rectal or urinary issues and I've retained my sexual function. My PSA is undetectable! Kudos to Dr Dattoli and his wonderful team in a paradise location. WOW!

When I was treated by Dr. Dattoli 10 years ago, he was compassionate and took plenty of time explaining treatment and prognosis with me.
IF THE DATTOLI CANCER CENTER WAS A HOTEL IT WOULD EASILY BE 5 STARS
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on March 24th, 2017
I traveled across country to see the one doctor whose name comes up more than any other as being "the best at treating prostate cancer"..I can now stand by that with conviction. You see, I know there are other centers that treat prostate cancer, but I really wanted my bodily functions to be as close as possible to what they were when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. As I write this, having completed DART and Palladium treatment at Dattoli's center, I can say mission accomplished!.In fact it was almost a vacation for me! Dr Dattoli is brilliant and individualizes his treatment to the individual's disease. The technologies utilized cannot be found at any other University in the U.S. or world. I cannot say enough about the depth of knowledge of the physics and dosimetry team that Dr Dattoli has assembled. While being treated there, I met others who were being treated and men being treated from NYC to Greece to S.Africa. All were happy. with their choice, regardless of stage. Unfortunately, many had already had surgery and failed and had to suffer the surgical effects. They too, however, were of the mindset of getting rid of the cancer and not compounding surgical side effects with radiation.. The front office knows everyone by name and those on the other side of the building who treat you are so compassionate and careful in carrying out Dr Dattoli's plan. I look forward to my annual visits.
TREATED IN 2002!!

FROM QUEBEC- BEST PROSTATE CANCER TREATMENT ANYWHERE

Everything is so well thought out for the patients comfort at the Dattoli Cancer Center. You're never just a number. I researched a lot and ultimately left Canada's best and Proton Centers in the U.S. to receive the most sophisticated radiation in the world (DART- created by the Dattoli Team) and brachytherapy which Dr Dattoli pioneered. I just finished treatment which I actually enjoyed! No side effects and I made many friends from everywhere. What a great journey. Can't wait to return to sunny Sarasota for my first follow-up visit.
