Smilow Cancer Hospital, 4th floor
Prostate and Urologic Cancers
Imaging and Interventional Radiology
Our team is composed of surgeons with extensive clinical experience and fellowship training in urologic oncology. Each urologist is committed to achieving optimal cancer outcomes through advanced surgical techniques, and emphasizes organ preservation and safeguarding of sexual and urinary function whenever possible.
The surgical approach is customized and carefully considered for each patient, whether endoscopic, robotic, or traditional open surgery. The urology team is committed to surgical innovation and off ers cutting-edge technology for cancer diagnosis, including the pioneering use of Artemis MRI-ultrasound fusion prostate biopsy. In addition, Blue Light™ Cystoscopy, an advanced endoscopic technology, is used to improve bladder cancer detection and reduce risk of cancer recurrence.
Through use of advanced techniques, including minimally invasive and robotic surgery, such as nerve-sparing robotic prostatectomy with the da Vinci Xi robot, our urologists are able to optimize both cancer care and surgical recovery. Cryoablation (tumor freezing) may be a good option for some patients with prostate or kidney tumors. Focal therapy is also available for appropriate patients with prostate cancer, as it is able to treat the cancer without the use of radiation or surgery, preserving the prostate and urinary and sexual function. Similarly, for some patients with cancers of the ureter or upper urinary tract, a laser can be used to treat the tumor and preserve kidney function.
For each of our patients, our urologists provide a high-quality experience and focus on safety and quality of care after surgery. Most patients are candidates for our Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocol, which reduces length of stay and complications while optimizing our patients’ complete recovery.
