Urology is a branch of medicine that focuses on diseases of the male reproductive organs and the male and female urinary tract system. Urologists are doctors who have completed post-graduate training in general surgery and clinical urology. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Southwestern Regional Medical Center (Southwestern) in Tulsa, Oklahoma, our urologists provide innovative treatments and technologies for patients with kidney, bladder, prostate, penile and testicular cancer. They are trained to diagnose and treat patients with conventional treatments such as radiation, chemotherapy and surgery.
At the initial appointment, clinicians at Southwestern interview patients about their general health backgrounds and collect medical records. Our urologists may also be involved in conducting physical exams and ordering blood work or other tests so to make an informed diagnosis, before providing our Oklahoma patients with a variety of treatment options.
With many urologic treatments available for cancers of the urinary tract system and male reproductive organs, it is important for patients to understand their options. Personalized care at CTCA® begins with open communication. The urologists at our cancer center in Tulsa meet with patients to discuss treatment options and answer questions. The urologists and other doctors and clinicians at Southwestern work to see that patients feel empowered to make informed decisions about their care.
Together, our cancer care team develops a comprehensive cancer treatment plan designed for you. Your individualized plan will include advanced medical treatments and technologies, combined with supportive care services to help reduce side effects and keep you strong in body, mind and spirit throughout treatment.
