Prostate cancer surgery may be a necessary procedure for patients whose cancer is found to be confined to the prostate. Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL, has a multispecialty team of experts who utilize state-of-the-art technologies to offer many different surgical options for prostate cancer patients traveling from Delray, Florida. Our dedication to research and clinical trials for developing new and more effective treatments for cancer treatment has earned us recognition from the National Cancer Institute; we have been named a Comprehensive Cancer Center, and are the only such center based in Florida. The advances we have made allow our experienced, fellowship-trained surgeons to successfully treat tumors that were previously believed to be inoperable. Additionally, we provide all aspects of cancer treatment and support, from diagnosis and surgical procedures to supportive care, in a single location, so patients don’t have to travel to other facilities.
At Moffitt, we work to ensure that each patient receives the most comprehensive treatment plan possible. Each patient’s case is reviewed weekly by a tumor board of cancer specialists who collaboratively analyze and refine treatment plans as necessary. If our tumor board recommends prostate cancer surgery for a patient from Delray, FL, or the outlying area, they will advise the patient on the different options available, such as:
- Traditional prostatectomy
- Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy
- Robot-assisted prostatectomy
- Radio-frequency ablation
To make it easier for patients traveling from out of town for their prostate cancer surgery, Moffitt has also partnered with local hotels to offer lower rates for patients traveling from Delray, Florida, and beyond. This allows our patients to have peace of mind while receiving the treatment they need rather than being concerned about finding an affordable place to stay. Also, because we know that some of our patients may have compromised immune systems, we have ensured that these hotels conform to our stringent hygiene and infection control standards to protect our patients’ well-being.
