Highlights of our urologic oncology program include:

  • Advanced imaging technologies that can accurately pinpoint a tumor’s size, shape and location, enhancing our doctors’ detection and treatment planning capabilities, as well as better monitoring of “active surveillance” patients
  • Minimally-invasive and robotically-assisted surgical techniques that can offer optimal outcomes with less pain, reduced scarring and faster healing time
  • Targeted radiation regimens that is sculpted to the size and shape of the tumor, focusing its impact on cancer cells while minimizing exposure to nearby normal tissues
  • A drug development pipeline that quickly identifies new cancer drugs and turns them into promising therapies for clinical trials
  • Enhanced urinary diversion techniques that minimize interference with everyday life
  • Fertility-preserving options for younger patients who want to have children after cancer treatment
