TUCC is one of the only centers in the U.S. to offer on site, comprehensive radiation therapy for urologic cancers. Radiation therapy can be used as a primary treatment option for prostate cancer or as an additional form of treatment following surgery. This treatment is precisely targeted to the cancerous tumor in order to minimize side effects and improve outcomes.
TUCC surgeons have performed more than 1,800 robotic prostatectomies since 2006. By utilizing robotic technology, a surgeon's hand movements are motion scaled and any hand tremor is filtered resulting in perfectly translated, precise movements of the instruments. The benefits of robotic surgery include shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, less pain and reduced blood loss.
