Urologic oncology is a subspecialty of urology that was established to deal with the special needs of people with cancer of the male and female urinary systems and the male reproductive system. A urologic oncologist is particularly skilled in the surgical treatment of these cancers, as well as in the use of hormonal therapy for specific cancers, and chemotherapy instilled into the bladder.
Crozer-Keystone offers full up-to-date care, including laparoscopy and cryoablation therapy ( controlled freezing of the prostate gland in order to destroy cancerous cells ). Crozer’s urologic oncologists emphasize multimodal therapy, including complex surgical procedures, and careful attention is given to quality-of-life issues.
