If you live in Kissimmee, Florida, and you need an open traditional radical prostatectomy to help treat your prostate cancer, consider traveling to Tampa to have your procedure performed by the surgeons at Moffitt Cancer Center. Moffitt is the third largest cancer center in the nation based on patient volume; therefore, we’ve treated a high number of all types of cancer, including prostate. We are also the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida. This prestigious designation proves our commitment to gaining ground in the fight against cancer and to developing effective approaches to prostate cancer treatment, including surgery.
At Moffitt, our level of surgical expertise and service is virtually unparalleled. Our board-certified surgeons have helped thousands of patients fight cancer and lead a higher quality of life. This, in part, is what has led us to consistently rank more than 95 percent in patient satisfaction.
With a traditional radical prostatectomy, our surgeons can utilize one of two techniques:
- Radical perineal prostatectomy, in which the prostate and surrounding tissues are removed through an incision in the perineum
- Radical retropubic prostatectomy, in which the prostate gland, as well as nearby tissues and lymph nodes, are removed through a single, long incision in the lower abdomen
To help our patients and their loved ones who are traveling from Kissimmee, we’ve partnered with several local hotels that offer discounted rates. These hotels also meet or exceed our stringent hygiene and infection control standards, giving our patients and their families a safe and affordable place to stay during treatment. Additionally, all of our diagnostic, treatment and supportive services are offered in a single location, making treatment at Moffitt even more convenient for out-of-town patients, as they won’t have to worry about navigating from clinic to clinic.
