Prostate and Genitourinary Cancer Care Multispecialty Team
When it comes to cancer, there is no time to waste. That’s why we bring a whole team of cancer specialists together in the Prostate and Genitourinary Cancer Multispecialty Team. This team approach also saves you and your family the anxiety and uncertainty of waiting days and weeks between individual appointments.
Efficient, Comprehensive Care for Prostate and Genitourinary Cancer
In one day—at one appointment—patients with cancer of the bladder, kidney, penis, prostate or testis will meet with a team of specialists. They’ll discuss your best treatment options and answer any questions you and your family might have. You’ll leave the building with a detailed verbal and written care plan.
Combining efficiency and expertise, our specialists are able to move treatment forward faster, which may increase the chances for a successful outcome.
