Prostate & Other Urologic Cancers
Comprehensive urologic cancer care, closer to home
The Weill Cornell Medicine Meyer Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital provides comprehensive care for people with urologic cancers, such as those of the prostate, bladder, kidney, testicles, and ureters. You can receive all the care you need in one location, from diagnosis through treatment and survivorship.
We take a minimally invasive approach to urologic cancer surgery, using robotic surgery in many cases that results in smaller incisions, less discomfort after surgery, and a quicker return to your normal activities. We also offer the newest chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and radiation therapy approaches.
You may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial of a promising new urologic cancer therapy. NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist is a site for the NRG Oncology Group, which brings together the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project, the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group, and the Gynecologic Oncology Group — each recognized internationally as a leader in cancer research. Through our relationship with Weill Cornell Medicine, we are a member of the academically prestigious Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology.
There's no need to travel into Manhattan to get the most advanced urologic cancer care — it is available right here in your community, in Brooklyn.
