The Prostate and Urologic Cancer Program at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin is the leading urologic oncology program in the state. We provide patients with highly experienced physician specialists, accessible health resources and the latest technology in cancer treatment.
A Research Center
Because it has the full resources of an academic medical center at its disposal — plus specialist expertise and a large patient base — the Prostate and Urologic Cancer Program is able to participate in significant national clinical trials, many of them funded by recognized cancer organizations such as the National Cancer Institute. These trials investigate new drugs, radiation therapies, surgical procedures, combination therapies, and the biology and genealogy of cancer cells.
Nationally Recognized Expertise
Our physicians have the most prostate cancer surgery and cryosurgery experience in Wisconsin, and their expertise has been recognized on state and national levels.
Innovations: Radiation, Chemotherapy Playing New Roles
New approaches to radiation therapy, molecular markers, active surveillance and more aggressive use of chemotherapy are all contributing to one of the most progressive times in prostate cancer treatments. For patients with aggressive forms of prostate cancer, research at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, across the country and around the world is revealing promising innovations that are changing treatment standards.
