The Urology Cancer Center at Tufts Medical Center in downtown Boston, MA unites a multidisciplinary team of specialists providing comprehensive surgical and medical management of urologic cancers including kidney, adrenal, bladder, prostate, penile and testicular cancer.
Regular team meetings in a Tumor Board setting determine the most appropriate treatment and care options in each individual case. We make collaborative decisions and involve both the patient and his/her family in choosing the proper cancer treatment.
Following treatment, we monitor all patients to make sure the disease has not recurred or progressed and modify our treatment strategies accordingly. To make more efficient delivery of personalized care for patients suffering from high-incidence urologic cancers, our department leads several cancer-specific programs:
The Prostate Cancer Program
This program offers a variety of innovative treatment options for all stages of prostate cancer. The Prostate Cancer Program is comprised of a team of Urologists, Medical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Pathologists, and support staff.
