Dr. Buscemi also treats erectile dysfunction, hypogonadism, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), prostate cancer, and urinary stone disease. Dr. Buscemi developed a cutting-edge ultrasound team that performs urological imaging and ultrasound-guided procedures in his office to reduce costs for patients and insurance companies. He has provided in-office cystoscopic diagnostic procedures since starting his practice in 1992. As new equipment has been developed, he has been able to perform additional small cystoscopic surgical functions, further reducing costs and enabling patients to avoid prolonged hospital stays.
Many patients have had to travel long distances to regional cancer centers for care, which can be expensive and inconvenient. Dr. Buscemi has worked to bring oncology care and treatment protocols to his office, allowing patients to benefit from various chemotherapy and immunotherapies for prostate and bladder cancer without having to travel far. Dr. Buscemi is a strong advocate for practicing medicine from a holistic perspective. He recognizes that many common illnesses and ailments can be managed and treated with dietary and lifestyle modifications. He does not believe in a "one size fits all" approach to patient care. He prescribes exercise for his patients and often participates in community walks and fundraisers to promote physical activity. Dr. Buscemi takes a conservative approach to surgical interventions, only resorting to surgery once other interventions, such as medications and lifestyle changes, have failed. He takes pride in educating his patients and assisting them in developing specialized treatment plans tailored to their needs.
