In this video, Amy N. Luckenbaugh, MD, shares the background and key findings of the recent Journal of Urology study “Association between Treatment for Localized Prostate Cancer and Mental Health Outcomes,” for which she served as first author. Luckenbaugh is an assistant professor of urology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee.
