Mike Schmeltzer, Urology Patient

Back coaching three weeks after robotic prostate surgery

Mike Schmeltzer


Mike: My PSA levels were rising, so my primary physician referred me to Summa Health Urology. That's where I met Dr. Nething who ordered a biopsy with Dr. Dankoff. It was found that I had prostate cancer.

When I heard the word cancer, it was my worst fear, but Dr. Dankoff was amazing. He guided me through this in a way that it did relieve the stress somewhat and I decided on robotic prostate surgery with Dr. Arora.

I coach high school girls basketball and three weeks later, I was on the courts coaching again, which was truly amazing. I know a little bit about teamwork. I feel Summa Health Urology team could take us to the championship.
