We know complex
Our multidisciplinary, fellowship-trained prostate cancer team includes subspecialized physicians that only focus on prostate cancer within their given fields as:
- Urologic oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Medical oncologists
Every patient is different, not all prostate cancer is equal. As such, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Subspecialists who work day-in and day-out on prostate cancer have a deeper understanding of all available treatment options for a specific case. The team works together to provide the best, most comprehensive diagnoses, treatments and care plans. We know complexities of the disease that may be missed by a specialist, which in turn could limit treatment options.
At the forefront of innovation
As part of an academic medical center, we offer the most innovative treatment options, such as proton therapy and Retzius-sparing prostatectomy. Additionally, we offer the most advanced treatments in radiation oncology including brachytherapy, SBRT and SpaceOAR.
Along with leading treatments, our physicians lead national and international clinical trials for early-stage, advanced and metastatic prostate cancer. We are at the forefront of clinical studies with immunotherapy and targeted therapy used for the treatment of prostate cancer.
