Collectively, genitourinary cancers, particularly prostate and bladder cancer, are among the most common form of malignancies, affecting nearly half a million Americans each year.
The Genitourinary Multidisciplinary Clinic, a program of The Comprehensive Cancer Center at The Miriam and Rhode Island hospitals, is the only one of its kind in the state. Entirely dedicated to the care of patients with urologic malignancies, we take a team-based approach, bringing together nationally recognized leaders in the treatment and research of these diseases.
We provide care for patients who have or are at risk for the following types of cancer:
The evaluation, treatment and follow-up of patients with genitourinary cancers can be complex and may require expertise in multiple disciplines throughout all phases of the patient’s illness. We offer a unique, comprehensive approach. At diagnosis, our patients come in for one visit and see physicians in all disciplines, including medical oncology, radiation oncology and surgery. After this initial visit, our team meets with the patient to present a recommended plan of care. Our experienced staff coordinates treatment, as well as all necessary follow-up and rehabilitation, so that patients can focus all their energies on recovery.
