Bert Hoffman’s Recovery from Prostate Cancer at Sheba
My name is Bert (Buz) Hoffman. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in March of 2009 and in May of that same year, underwent Robotic Radical Prostatectomy at University of Chicago to remove a Gleason 9 tumor. The surgery went well and the PSA remained undetectable for the next four years. In June 2013, the PSA began to slowly rise and in September of 2015, I entered a course of IMRT radiation for 49 sessions. The PSA continued to rise, indicating the radiation was unsuccessful.
