Our multispecialty Urologic Cancers Program is dedicated to providing cutting-edge technology for the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of testicular cancer and other urologic cancers (prostate, bladder and kidney).
The program design coordinates the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment through the collaboration of specialty physicians who have nationally recognized expertise in these cancers.
Multidisciplinary Testicular Cancer Care Specialties involved include:
- 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.
Testicular Cancer Treatment
Available treatment modalities include minimally invasive surgical techniques with:
- Laparoscopic surgery
- Precision guided intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT)
- Combined modality approaches with chemotherapy and radiotherapy
- Clinical research trials
Testicular Cancer Support Team
Additionally, patients and their caregivers have access to our support team who help them cope with the physical, emotional, and psychological issues related to these cancers. The extended team includes a nurse navigator, social workers, dietitians, rehabilitation therapists and more.
