How We Treat Prostate Cancer
Your case is unique, which means your treatment plan will be designed around your needs. Every week, a team of specialists meets to discuss cancer cases and collaborate on the best treatment for each patient. You benefit from the combined expertise of specialists in radiology, surgery, pathology, pharmacology, oncology and therapists in fields like physical therapy and psychology.
Your recommended treatment will be based on best practices that have worked for other patients, specific aspects of your cancer, the results of all your tests, the stage of your cancer and your personal preferences.
Prostate cancer is typically treated with one method at a time, although in some cases treatments may be combined. Treatment options might include watchful waiting (actively monitoring your health and the disease), surgery, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, vaccine treatment or bone-directed treatment.
