STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Men will be the center of attention Thursday night at Staten Island University Hospital (SIUH) during a free seminar on their gender-specific health concerns.

Held in the Regina M. McGinn, M.D. Education Center from 6 to 8 p.m., the event will provide men age 50 and up with information on prostate, heart and vascular health, weight loss and bariatric surgery, nutrition and exercise, rehabilitation and physical therapy, and smoking cessation. They will also be able to receive a free Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test and stroke screening.

A leading Northeast urologic treatment center, SIUH has a team of experienced doctors who will be on hand for consultations throughout the night. The event will begin with a presentation on new treatments in men's health, which will address common prostate health issues. Drs. Nachum Katlowitz and Vance Moss, experts in surgical treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia and prostate cancer, will lead the panel.

Also on display will be the da Vinci Surgical System, a minimally-invasive, robotically assisted surgical solution that provides greater precision, visualization, dexterity and control to surgeons. The GreenLight laser, another device for minimally-invasive surgery, will also be discussed.

Refreshments will be served and items up for raffle. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. that evening and people can pre-register and learn more by visiting siuhevents.com.
