Men from Kissimmee, Florida, who are in need of a robotic radical prostatectomy to treat their prostate cancer are encouraged to travel to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. At Moffitt, we provide all aspects of cancer treatment and care, including the latest techniques in prevention, diagnosis, surgery and emotional counseling. We also believe that taking a multispecialty approach to cancer treatment leads to more successful treatment outcomes. Therefore, each patient’s case is reviewed weekly by our tumor board, a group of medical professionals that evaluate key factors of the patient’s case and collaboratively determine the best treatment plan for the patient’s situation. This allows our patients to receive the benefit of multiple opinions without the need for referrals.
To perform a robotic radical prostatectomy, Moffitt’s surgeons use robotic arms that translate their hand movements into highly precise motions. So although robotic arms are used, our patients are under the treatment and supervision of our surgeons throughout the procedure. This method requires a high level of technical expertise, which our surgeons have mastered. In fact, patients from Kissimmee and elsewhere throughout the nation choose to travel to Moffitt for this unparalleled surgical proficiency. Moreover, patients choose Moffitt for their cancer treatment because:
- Our surgeons specialize in each type of cancer, so robotic radical prostatectomy surgery will only be performed by a surgeon who specializes in malignancies of the prostate
- We’ve developed a reputation for being a world leader in highly advanced and complex cancer surgeries, such as a robot-assisted radical prostatectomy
- In addition to our robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy options, our surgical specialties also include minimally invasive and nerve-sparing techniques
For the convenience of our out-of-town guests, our patients can also take advantage of discounted rates at several local hotels. These hotels have partnered with us and ensure their properties meet or exceed our stringent hygiene and infection control standards. So whether a patient requires brief or extended treatment at Moffitt, they and their families will have a safe and comfortable place to stay.
