Urologic Cancer Services

If you are experiencing symptoms of urologic cancer, our specialists will use the latest technology to deliver an efficient, accurate diagnosis. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment will help us diagnose your cancer in its earliest stages, when it is most treatable.

Based on your diagnosis, your cancer team will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific condition. If your condition requires surgery, you can rest assured that your urologist will use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to reduce discomfort, speed up your recovery and deliver the best possible results.

Your urologist may recommend tests or treatments including:

  • Cystectomy. A cystectomy is the surgical removal of all or part of your bladder to treat bladder cancer.
  • Cystoscopy. Cystoscopy is a procedure that is used to see inside your bladder and urethra. A cystoscopy is performed to diagnose, and sometimes treat, diseases and conditions of the bladder, including cancer, bladder stones and bladder inflammation.
  • Nephrectomy. A nephrectomy is a surgical procedure to remove all or part of your kidney. The procedure is commonly performed to treat cancer or remove a seriously damaged or diseased kidney.
  • Orchiectomy. Orchiectomy is the removal of the testicles. The procedure is commonly performed to treat testicular and prostate cancer.
  • Radical retropubic prostatectomy. Radical retropubic prostatectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the entire prostate gland and some surrounding tissue to treat prostate cancer.
  • Transurethral resection for bladder tumor (TURBT). A TURBT procedure is used to diagnose bladder cancer and remove cancerous tissue from your bladder.
  • Hormone therapy. Hormone therapy for prostate cancer is the use of medicines to reduce testosterone to very low levels, which can control the spread of the cancer.
