Urologic Cancers

The Urologic Oncology Program at the North Shore-LIJ Health System brings together experts from departments including Urology, Radiation Medicine and Medical Oncology. Among the conditions the Urologic Oncology Program treats are:

The Arthur Smith Institute for Urology (part of the Center for Advanced Medicine), offers superior comprehensive and multidisciplinary treatments of the urologic malignancies, including:

  • Minimally-Invasive Surgeries
  • Novel Chemotherapeutic Protocols
  • Immunotherapy — a type of treatment that uses the body's immune system to halt the growth of cancer cells and usually produces fewer side effects
  • Cryoablation — a minimally-invasive treatment using extreme cold to freeze and kill cancer cells
  • Robotic Surgery
  • Radiation Therapy

The Urologic Oncology Program, in conjunction with the Department of Radiation Medicine, utilizes advanced therapies in the treatment of prostate cancer, including the use of the Calypso© Localization System, an innovative procedure using miniature sensors that track the movement of the prostate, ensuring a more accurate application of the treatment.

In 2011, North Shore-LIJ introduced the Center for Prostate Cancer, the premier referral center for prostate cancer care in the region. The Center for Prostate Cancer is one of a select number of specialized facilities in the Northeast and the only one in the metropolitan area dedicated to prostate cancer patients. Our state-of-the-art office, conveniently located on the border of Nassau and Queens, offers both advanced, minimally-invasive surgical procedures and state-of-the-art radiation techniques.
