Advanced Robotic Surgery
You have easy access to a wide range of cancer treatment options. One of those options is minimally invasive robotic surgery for some colon cancer, rectal cancer and prostate cancers. The daVinci S robotic surgery system allows our surgeons to perform the most delicate operations, such as prostatectomy (removal of all or part of the prostate gland), with more accuracy. This results in less pain and faster recovery time for you.
Not Just a Team – A Small Army
The diagnosis and treatment of genitourinary cancers often require the skills of many specialists. We bring together these specialists in a single setting (called multidisciplinary care).
Here they discuss care for each patient and develop a thorough treatment program as a team. This provides you the best treatment plan possible. Patients also benefit by being able to see all specialists involved with the care plan in one convenient appointment.
Research and Clinical Trials
Working with UMass Chan Medical School, the Cancer Center serves as a forum for education and research. Extensive cancer research and clinical trials are conducted so you benefit from the latest diagnostic and treatment options that come from this research.
