Cryoablation of the prostate – the destruction of cancer cells through the use of extreme cold – is one of the many advanced cancer surgeries available at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, just a short drive away from Kissimmee, Florida. Cancer treatment often requires a multimodal approach, which may include surgical intervention. Moffitt’s board-certified surgeons are highly experienced in a wide array of prostate cancer treatments and skilled in using state-of-the-art technologies and equipment. We have helped thousands of patients fight cancer and find better quality of life.
Moffitt’s collaborative approach brings together medical professionals from many different specialties to offer each patient highly individualized cancer treatment and compassionate care. Each patient’s case is thoroughly reviewed by a tumor board, a multispecialty assembly of cancer treatment and care professionals who carefully evaluate the patient’s diagnosis and develop a tailored treatment plan. This tumor board is comprised of many experts, including:
- Radiation oncologists
- Medical oncologists
Moffitt’s tumor board meets weekly to continually monitor each patient’s progress, making adjustments to the treatment plan along the way as necessary. This high level of collaboration means that each patient benefits from multiple expert opinions without needing referrals or experiencing a lapse in treatment while another physician is consulted.
What’s more, all of Moffitt’s diagnostic, treatment and supportive services are provided in a single location, which can help make cancer treatment more convenient and less stressful. For those who are traveling from other communities, we can provide information on nearby hotels that meet our strict hygiene and infection control requirements. Many of these hotels also offer discounted rates to our patients.
