Meet our team.
Comprehensive care for prostate cancer
The Center offers comprehensive services for men, including prostate cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and post-treatment follow-up and rehabilitation.
Men who have risk factors for prostate cancer or who have been recently diagnosed with the disease face a bewildering range of options. Because prostate cancer varies from individual to individual in terms of risk and severity, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to its management. The multispecialty team of doctors and health care professionals of the Smilow Center will work with you to decide on a course of management that not only maximizes the chances of diagnosing and curing your cancer, but also best fits your overall medical condition and addresses your quality-of-life concerns.
Evidence-based medicine in the treatment of prostate cancer
Our faculty have a long history of internationally recognized discoveries in prostate cancer, and are constantly working to define new paradigms in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease. Not only are Smilow Center doctors intimately familiar with the most up-to-date studies in the medical literature, but in many cases they are leading these discoveries, right here at NYU.
