Prostate Cancer Surgery for Patients Traveling from the Jupiter, FL, Area
Prostate cancer surgery is often a major part of the multi-modal approach that is necessary for successful treatment of prostate cancer. Many patients from Jupiter, Florida, and the surrounding areas come to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL, for surgery and other treatment for their tumors. At Moffitt, the third largest cancer center in the nation based on patient volume, our urologic surgeons have performed thousands of successful surgical procedures for cancers of the prostate and male reproductive system. These fellowship-trained surgeons are constantly refining their skills and expertise to be able to offer the best treatment options possible, including every type of prostate cancer surgery, such as robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy, radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation of the prostate.
All of the diagnostic, treatment and supportive services at Moffitt are made available in a single location to ensure that patients who travel here can receive the attention they need without having to go from clinic to clinic over the course of their visit. Also, as part of our multispecialty approach to the treatment of cancer, a tumor board of Moffitt experts from different disciplines meets together to discuss the case’s details. This way, patients who travel from Jupiter, FL, receive a comprehensive treatment plan, which may include prostate cancer surgery, developed from many expert points of view rather than from a single physician. For carrying out these plans and providing the support that is necessary for the best patient experience possible, our team includes many different experienced professionals, including:
At Moffitt, we also understand that having to undergo prostate cancer surgery is already burdensome for patients and can be even more so when traveling from cities outside of our area, such as Jupiter, Florida. That’s why we have formed partnerships with nearby hotels that will offer our patients special rates to alleviate the stress of traveling and trying to find lodging. The management and staff of these hotels also ensure that their properties meet the same strict hygiene and infection control standards that we require, so that our patients who may have compromised immune systems can feel confident that they have a safe place to stay during the course of their treatment.
