- Research and innovation: Our team has had a hand in many urological cancer care “firsts,” including using anesthesia during prostate biopsy procedures and treatment methods that preserve bladder control. We have produced hundreds of publications sharing best practices with specialists worldwide.
- Complete care: The proper tests, paired with our highly skilled surgeons, often help us detect cancer earlier and deliver successful therapies. Complex cases involve the expertise of radiologists, geneticists and pathologists, all of whom have a special interest in urologic cancer. If cancer spreads to other areas, you may also benefit from radiation oncologists and medical oncologists who deliver sophisticated nonsurgical therapies.
- Timely services: We typically see new patients within a few business days, enabling you to receive assessments quickly. After our team determines your treatment plan, patient navigators (oncology nurses) keep your care moving forward. They help you schedule appointments and access cancer support services that ease your mind and body.
- Clinical trials: We are advancing care for some genitourinary cancer types through clinical trials. Our program actively participates in trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute, the nation’s top cancer research agency. These efforts help eligible patients receive emerging therapies years before they are widely available.
