If you live near Miami, FL, you can confidently entrust your prostate cancer treatment to the multispecialty team at Moffitt Cancer Center. We’re located in Tampa, but don’t allow the distance from Miami to dissuade you. Research studies consistently show that patients who are treated at a high-volume cancer center typically achieve better survival and quality-of-life outcomes. Moffitt treats many men with prostate cancer, and this allows us to provide our patients with an unmatched level of experience, as well as the benefits of a knowledge base that is broadening every day.
Moffitt also maintains a position at the forefront of prostate cancer treatment. For instance, we are currently the only cancer center in the U.S. that offers internal radiation treatment using an absorbable Duraseal gel to minimize radiation exposure to the rectum. Additionally, the oncologists and other medical professionals in our Urologic Oncology Program can do much more than help you manage your cancer. After getting to know you and carefully considering all aspects of your health and well-being, we’ll develop a comprehensive treatment plan for you, then continually monitor your progress every step of the way.
