Minimally Invasive Treatments for Prostate Cancer
At the Smilow Center we believe the paradigm for treating prostate cancer is evolving towards targeted focal therapies for low risk cases. Our surgeons are pioneering novel ablative technologies that have the ability to destroy small tumors while leaving the remaining prostate intact. In select cases, we are able to preserve surrounding tissue, alleviating incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and rectal problems.
Cryotherapy is an established minimally invasive option that uses ice to kill prostate cancer tissue. With recent advances in technology, cryotherapy is a safe and effective minimally invasive treatment for prostate cancer.
