Moffitt Cancer Center Offers Cryoablation of the Prostate for Patients from Orlando
Patients who live in or near Orlando, Florida, and are considering cryoablation of the prostate or other minimally invasive procedures to treat prostate cancer can receive outstanding treatment and care at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Moffitt’s highly experienced, fellowship-trained surgeons specialize in prostate cancer treatment and use state-of-the-art technologies and equipment to help thousands of patients improve their quality of life. Our collaborative approach to cancer treatment brings together medical professionals from many different specialties to offer each patient highly individualized cancer treatment and compassionate care.
Cryoablation of the prostate involves the introduction of cold gases into the affected area of the prostate to attempt to destroy cancer cells. After carefully evaluating a patient’s case, including the stage and extent of the prostate cancer, the multispecialty tumor board comprised of several Moffitt cancer specialists may suggest this procedure as a way of treating the condition without removing the gland. Each talented tumor board includes:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Supportive care workers
By bringing together professionals from many disciplines, Moffitt provides each patient with the benefit of several expert opinions at every step in his prostate cancer treatment, without the need for referrals. From evaluating initial tests to determining the most appropriate surgical procedure to assessing the response to treatment, the tumor board within Moffitt’s Urologic Oncology Program continually assists the patient.
Moffitt is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida – a recognition of our commitment to discovering and developing the most effective approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Due in part to this distinction, we are able to attract some of the top physicians in the world and provide our patients with a better quality of treatment and care than most other cancer centers. We can even provide information about lodging with our hotel partners for patients traveling from Orlando, FL, or other nearby communities.
