Minimally invasive with maximum precision for the treatment of prostate cancer
The Prostate, Bladder, Kidney and Testicle Unit has been created with the aim of providing the best care and the most advanced methods of prostate, kidney and bladder cancer detection and treatment. Prostate cancer is the second most frequently found type of cancer in men, especially in those over 50 years of age.
The Prostate, Bladder, Kidney and Testicle Unit consists of a multidisciplinary team including urologists, Radiation oncologists, Anatomopathologists, Oncologists, Bio-chemists, Psychiatrists and Nurses whose purpose is to provide patients with a thorough and effective service.
Surgery (prostatectomy), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), hormone therapy, and in some cases chemotherapy (administered at our Day Hospital) are just some of the types of treatment performed according to patient age and condition, and the condition of the illness itself.
Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in the treatment of prostate cancer has been performed since 2000 with the Shaped beam radiosurgery Novalis / Radiotherapy Unit of the Radiooncology Service.
