Prostate Cancer Treatments
The UW Prostate and Genitourinary Cancer Program (UWPGCP) and the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, the state's only comprehensive cancer center, collaborate to bring together physicians from all disciplines that specialize in prostate cancer. Our urologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists see more than 400 new prostate cancer patients per year, offering patients innovative techniques in prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
The Carbone Cancer Center is a world leader in prostate cancer research. As a result, prostate cancer patients may also benefit from clinical trials that offer patients the ability to get new techniques or agents, new combinations of agents or new schedules of treatment that might not be available at other centers.
