The Levine Cancer Institute, along with its partner McKay Urology, offers patients easy access to specialized, multidisciplinary care and cutting-edge technology for the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is now the most common cancer diagnosed in American males and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States.
When caught early and treated appropriately, the majority of patients can be cured from their cancer.
Multidisciplinary Prostate Cancer Treatment
Our nationally recognized specialists come from such disciplines as:
- Medical oncology
- Radiation oncology
- Surgical oncology
- Diagnostic imaging
Physicians meet regularly to discuss every patient's care and to develop a comprehensive treatment plan unique for each patient, in consultation with the patient's referring physician. We find this coordination and collaboration to be efficient which, in turn, raises the quality of each patient's medical management.

- Robotic surgical technology for radical prostatectomy
