In this episode, interventional radiologist and entrepreneur Dr. Sandeep Bagla joins our host Dr. Aaron Fritts to discuss the founding and multispecialty focus of Prostate Centers USA, a rapidly expanding network of office based labs (OBLs).
Dr. Bagla describes why he decided to shift away from his former private practice and embark on a new venture that would eventually become Prostate Centers USA. Dr. Bagla sought to focus on embolization, a novel area of interventional radiology. He recounts the process of conducting prostate artery embolization clinical trials in a private practice environment, including challenges encountered and lessons learned about changing FDA regulations.
Dr. Bagla developed Prostate Centers USA from a vision of collaboration with urologists to provide comprehensive procedural and clinical care. He describes how he pitched his collaborative approach to urologists and how he dealt with pushback. He also describes why the centers’ ownership structures and focused training pathways are attractive to physicians. Finally, Dr. Bagla highlights technologies that allow for ease of communication between the team members, such as task management systems and centralized monitoring systems.
