Prostate cancer surgery is often an important part of a patient’s treatment plan, and to offer the best chances of success and a better quality of life, it requires a multi-modal approach as well as comprehensive supportive care. For patients traveling from Lehigh Acres and other areas in Florida and beyond, Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa offers a variety of surgical options and other treatments, provided by a diverse and highly trained team of cancer specialists. While developing a treatment plan, our specialists meet in a weekly tumor board to collaboratively discuss each patient’s case and ensure that every possible avenue is explored. Also, because Moffitt provides all aspects of cancer care in one convenient location, there’s no need for patients to worry about having to travel from clinic to clinic during the course of their treatment.
If our team recommends prostate cancer surgery, our specialists will ensure that the patient is educated on the different options available. These include traditional open approaches, as well as minimally invasive laparoscopic approaches and ablation techniques. When patients travel to Moffitt from Lehigh Acres, FL, for any of these procedures, they can rest easy knowing they are receiving the best treatment possible, because:
- Moffitt is the only Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida as designated by the National Cancer Institute, a prestigious recognition proving our steadfastness in being at the forefront of the fight against cancer with in-depth research efforts.
- Our extensive clinical trial program offers many of our patients the chance to be among the first to benefit from new cancer-fighting treatments.
- The highly experienced prostate cancer surgery team at Moffitt not only includes fellowship-trained surgeons who have performed a high volume of successful procedures, but also a well-rounded team of oncologists, nurses, radiologists, educators, chaplains and others.
Also, when patients need to travel from locations outside our area, such as Lehigh Acres, Florida, for their prostate cancer surgery, they don’t have as much to worry about when it comes to the burden of travel and lodging. That’s because at Moffitt, we’ve partnered with nearby hotels to offer patients special rates so they can rest easier and focus more on their health. For even more peace of mind, the management and staff at these hotels have agreed that their accommodations will abide by our own stringent guidelines for infection control and hygiene to better serve patients who may have compromised immune systems.
