Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is one of the many individualized treatment options available to prostate cancer patients from the West Palm Beach area of Florida at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. We take a multi-modal approach to cancer treatment, and our multispecialty team meets weekly as a tumor board to collaboratively examine each patient’s case and determine the most appropriate treatment options. These oncology specialists continually review the progress of each patient and refine the treatment plan as necessary to ensure the best possible approach. Also, all of our diagnostic tests, treatment options and supportive care services are provided in a single location for the convenience and comfort of our patients.
Since opening in 1986, Moffitt has been internationally recognized for our high success rate of complex cancer surgeries, including prostate cancer procedures such as our minimally invasive laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. The surgeons on our team are extremely specialized and experienced, each having performed a large volume of cancer surgeries, including prostatectomies. We also utilize a wide range of state-of-the-art technologies, such as robotic assistance for higher surgical precision and maneuverability.
Moffitt welcomes patients with or without referrals, and when patients are referred to us for laparoscopic radical prostatectomy or other prostate cancer treatment, we work closely with the referring physicians to ensure comprehensive, individualized care. Our team includes the following highly skilled and experienced professionals:
- Fellowship-trained surgeons
- Social workers
At Moffitt, we understand how difficult it can be to deal with prostate cancer, particularly for patients who must travel. To help ease the logistical burden, we assist our patients from West Palm Beach and elsewhere through our partnerships with nearby hotels that offer our patients discounted rates. Our patients can also have peace of mind in knowing that these hotels adhere to our strict infection control policies and hygiene standards, which is particularly important for those with compromised immune systems.
