We are medical oncologists, internists specifically trained to diagnose and treat all types of cancer. Since 1995, we have restricted ourselves to treating prostate cancer. Strangely, even though millions are living with prostate cancer, less than a hundred medical oncologists actually specialize in treating it. Almost all these specialists are located at academic centers focusing on research. In the whole country, we are one of only a couple private centers devoted exclusively to treating prostate cancer. As medical oncologists and internists, we do not have a preset agenda for one specific treatment such as surgery or radiation. All treatments, including active surveillance, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, surgery, radiation, brachytherapy, cryotherapy, nutritional and alternative therapies, HIFU and chemotherapy are given consideration.
