Genitourinary (GU) Oncology
The world-renowned Genitourinary (GU) Oncology Program at Weill Cornell Medicine is dedicated to providing cutting-edge multidisciplinary treatment at every stage and for every type of prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer.
As New York’s premier healthcare network, Weill Cornell Medicine is at the forefront of scientific research and clinical trials, enabling us to provide a full range of diagnostic and treatment protocols, including the latest breakthroughs in medicine.
The GU Oncology Program provides world-class clinical care. We view each patient as an individual, and use a multidisciplinary approach to ensure that each treatment regimen is narrowly tailored to meet the unique needs of the patient and his or her diagnosis.
New patients are discussed weekly at a multidisciplinary GU Oncology Tumor Board, which allows us to collaborate with experts in other cancer sub-specialty areas in order to ensure that our patients are receiving the best, most comprehensive treatment. Additionally, we offer support beyond just treating cancer. We provide access to social services, nutritional guidance, support groups, genetic counseling, home care and more.
