Cryoablation of the Prostate for Patients from Cape Coral, FL
Prostate cancer patients in Cape Coral, Florida, needing cryoablation of the prostate as part of their cancer treatment plan will find outstanding surgeons and comprehensive treatment and care at Moffitt Cancer Center. We are recognized as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute, a designation that acknowledges our dedication to discovering and developing effective approaches to cancer treatment, including more advanced, less invasive surgical techniques. Cryoablation – the freezing of a prostate tumor to destroy cancerous cells – is just one of the minimally invasive treatments we offer to help minimize patient recovery times.
The fellowship-trained, board-certified surgeons within Moffitt’s Urologic Oncology Program specialize in prostate cancer surgeries and perform a high volume of procedures. The specific surgical procedure recommended for a prostate cancer patient who travels to Moffitt from Cape Coral, FL, will be determined by a multispecialty team of cancer specialists. Working together as a tumor board, these talented professionals will carefully evaluate the patient’s diagnostic test results and other information and formulate an individualized treatment plan suited to his unique condition and health. Our team includes:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Lab personnel
- Supportive care workers
Moffitt’s collaborative approach to cancer treatment means that each patient receives the benefit of several expert opinions without the need for referrals. The tumor board not only recommends an optimal course of treatment, but also monitors the patient’s progress on a weekly basis to continually refine the treatment plan and to ensure there is no lapse in therapy, as can happen when a patient must wait for referrals and appointments. At Moffitt, we have streamlined cancer treatment to improve the patient’s experience as much as possible and maximize each patient’s quality of life. We can also provide our out-of-town patients with a list of local hotels that meet or exceed our hygiene and infection-control standards, making it easier for them to find comfortable and convenient accommodations during their stay in Tampa.
