the opening of New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s (NHRMC)
state-of-the-art healthcare facility in Brunswick Forest, the region is
now privy to advanced technology, superior medical care and good ol’
Brunswick County hospitality. Dr. Roc A. McCarthy of Comprehensive
Urology is just one of the talented professionals who will enhance the
local medical community with skill and a smile.
rare technology and a hospitable bedside manner to the table, Dr.
McCarthy is a welcome addition to the local medical landscape. Patients
find value in Dr. McCarthy’s ability to provide thorough yet
easy-to-understand information to his patients in a way that feels
genuine and accessible.
“One in six males will be diagnosed with
prostate cancer,” states Dr. McCarthy. “That statistic can be
frightening. And as the guidelines change frequently, it’s hard to keep
up with what to do. I feel that it’s
important to tailor to each
patient, clearly explaining what’s new and what’s best. All in a way
that can be encouraging and easily understood.”
Not only is the
center earning high marks in the not-so-daunting doctor department, Dr.
McCarthy is also an exceptional find when it comes to his unique
expertise. The only surgeon of his kind in the county, Dr. McCarthy
utilizes robotic technology for a variety of surgical procedures, a
technique that was previously available only by traveling to medical
centers at UNC or Duke.
“We’re excited to bring this advanced
technology to Brunswick County,” says Dr. McCarthy. “With the minimally
invasive approach that robotic surgery offers, our patients require
less recovery time and are able to get back to their normal life
activities more quickly.”
The Comprehensive Urology team handles
everything from preventative care and female incontinence treatment to
prostatectomy, kidney surgery, vasectomy, cystoscopy, prostate biopsies
and many other urological procedures. And with the region’s only
Pediatric Urologist on staff, Comprehensive Urology is capable of
treating patients with a wide variety of conditions in a wide variety
of life stages.
The Comprehensive Urology office is located
within the 45,000-square-foot NHRMC facility and is open Monday through
Friday. The team accepts many insurance carriers and works in
last-minute appointments as needed. “I don’t care how busy I am,” says
Dr. McCarthy. “If I have a patient that needs to be seen, he needs to
be seen. I will always make time.”
When Dr. McCarthy is not
seeing his patients, he is visiting with them around the pool, working
out with them at the gym, or running into them at a nearby shop.
McCarthy not only works in Brunswick Forest, but also lives there with
his wife and two-year-old daughter.
Between treating patients,
speaking at local prostate awareness groups, exercising, enjoying the
community nature walks with his 11-year-old Polish Sheepdog, watching
in awe as his two-year-old daughter learns to count in three different
languages, and preparing for baby number two now on the way, McCarthy
keeps busy in Brunswick County.
“It’s really nice to work and
live in the same community,” says Dr. McCarthy. “I am honored to be a
part of Leland’s growth and to provide services that benefit patients
on a local level.”
