About the Prostate Cancer Program

Our Prostate Cancer Program provides comprehensive care from diagnosis and biopsy to determination of the best type of treatment for each patient. The program is a major referral destination for second opinions, and reviews patient cases at regular group meetings where doctors from several disciplines-surgery, radiation therapy, medical oncology, and pathology-work together to determine the treatment protocol to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient.

We see our mission as encompassing education about the disease and comprehensive diagnosis and testing techniques that help determine the correct treatment for each individual--whether the prostate cancer is local to the prostate and requires surgery or radiation treatment, whether the cancer has spread and requires chemotherapy or immunotherapy, or whether observation is the best treatment.

About the Genitourinary Cancer Program

Our Genitourinary Cancer Program team has broad expertise in treating both men and women for cancers of the urinary tract, bladder, and kidney, as well as male reproductive organs, including:

  • Urodynamic testing to assess how well the bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic tests help determine how well your bladder and sphincter muscles work.
  • Urinary tract reconstruction such as neobladders and continent diversions.
