The team is considered the local Missouri and Illinois experts at delivering dedicated, individualized, and personalized curative urologic cancer care. Many treatments, including radiation therapy, can be administered with no noticeable or very minimal side effects. This multidisciplinary endeavor is facilitated by close integration of urologic cancer care with primary care physicians, urologist, gastroenterologist, medical oncologist, radiologists, surgeons, and collaborative care network of additional specialized health care providers.
Patients diagnosed with urological cancer undergo a thorough assessment and evaluation of their overall health status. A careful analysis of the cancer pathology and thoughtful consideration of the potential biological behavior of the tumor is undertaken. Available treatment options are then presented based on these specific disease findings, personal patient preferences, and the experience and expertise of the treatment team. A comprehensive discussion of alternative treatment choices might include active surveillance, surgery, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, or a combination of multiple modalities. For more advanced cancer states, additional systemic therapies might be suggested as part of the overall treatment plan.
