Prostate & Urologic Cancers Program
The Prostate & Urologic Cancers Program
The Prostate and Urologic Cancers Program at Smilow Cancer Hospital comprises a multispecialty team dedicated to managing the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of urologic cancer. Our patients benefit from the expertise of a collaborative approach to cancer care, which personalizes treatment options for tumors affecting the prostate, bladder, kidney, testes, upper tract (ureter and renal pelvis), penis, and urethra. We engage experts who specialize in medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, pathology, and diagnostic imaging.
Patients also have access to caregivers who can help with the physical, emotional, and psychological issues related to these cancers. The extended team includes health educators, social workers, dieticians, and complementary therapists. Our goal is to ensure the highest standard of care to support our patients and their families.
