(CNN) -- New York Yankees manager Joe Torre underwent surgery Thursday at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Torre is just one of the 140,000 men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer on average each year.
His two-and-one-half hour surgical procedure was performed by Dr. William
Catalona, a Washington University urologic surgeon and a pioneer in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer.
Medical Correspondent Dr. Steve Salvatore was able to talk with the doctor about his discovery of a blood test called "PSA" and its impact on the early detection of prostate cancer.
