Tests & Treatments

  • Chemotherapy
    Chemotherapy has the ability to reach cancer that may have spread, even microscopically, throughout the body.

  • Cryotherapy
    Cryotherapy treatment for prostate cancer is used in those rare instances when the cancer returns or with organ-confined prostate cancer.

  • Cystectomy
    This procedure can be done robotically utilizing the da Vinci® surgical system, which allows the surgeon to view the surgical area in high definition, making the bladder removal operation very precise.

  • Cystoscopy
    Our urologists use both conventional white light cystoscopy and the newer blue light cystoscopy to diagnose problems with the urinary tract, bladder and the urethra.

  • Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization
    This testing technique is used to identify particular DNA sequences in cells, tissues and tumors that may be cancerous.

  • Laparoscopic & Robotic Radical Prostatectomy
    If you are suffering from prostate cancer, our urologists can offer a laparoscopic or robotic-assisted prostatectomy.

  • Nephrectomy
    If you are diagnosed with a tumor of the kidney or another condition that prevents the kidney from functioning properly, a nephrectomy may be required.
