At alta uro, we offer a very broad range of prostate cancer treatment. For cancer limited to the prostate , this includes:
- Active surveillance: The cancer is less aggressive and regularly monitored by blood tests (PSA), imaging (MRI of the prostate) and fusion biopsy.
- Focal therapy: With this innovative form of therapy, only the area of the prostate affected by cancer is treated. This treatment is offered as part of a clinical trial. More information can be found here
- Radical prostatectomy: The removal of the prostate usually is done with the Da Vinci robotic system. The experts of alta uro use the state-of-the-art facility at Merian Iselin Clinic for their robot-assisted surgeries.
- For locally advanced tumours: Open surgery with extended removal of lymph nodes or removal of tumours that have recurred in the lymph node (lymph node metastasis surgery).
If the tumor has already spread to the body, therapy with medication for hormone seprivation, for influencing the bone metabolism and possibly chemotherapy is required.
