Bladder Cancer

In 2004, University of Florida Health Jacksonville launched North Florida's first Genitourinary Oncology Program to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with genitourinary cancers (cancers of the prostate, bladder, kidney, testis and penis). In this approach, patients receive coordinated, compassionate and quality cancer care from specialists in urologic oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology and radiology.

The program consists of University of Florida physician specialists and healthcare professionals working together to provide state-of-the-art cancer treatment. Support is also provided to patients by a group of skilled pharmacists, nurses, case workers and nutritionists.

Genitourinary Oncology Program clinicians meet weekly to evaluate patient profiles and to thoroughly discuss appropriate treatment plans. Multidisciplinary approaches to diagnosis and treatment include minimally invasive surgery, the latest technology in conformal radiotherapy and access to new cancer treatments and research through the program's affiliation with national clinical trials.
