When caught early, prostate cancer is the most treatable of cancers and has a smaller chance of growth. Without treatment, the cancer can spread to other organs or lead to erectile dysfunction or incontinence.
At Einstein, an entire team is dedicated to fighting your prostate cancer while also addressing the psychological and emotional stresses that can accompany this disease.
We treat the following urological cancers:
We use video-assisted techniques to identify the full extent of your cancer and offer both traditional and minimally invasive surgical techniques, including endoscopic surgery or laser ablation surgery. We may treat certain bladder cancer cases with ileal conduit or the creation of a neobladder.
Our robotic surgical options use the da Vinci Surgical System for prostatectomy and nephrectomy. Other robotic surgical options include cystectomy, lymphadenectomy and ureterectomy.
Our cancer team works with you to develop and implement the most effective program to meet your individual needs. They help you and your family understand the various phases of care and answer any questions you may have.

Radiation therapy directs high-energy beams to shrink cancer cells and tumors. We offer options using the Varian Trilogy linear accelerator (LINAC), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and RapidArc.
Radioactive seed implantation involves small radioactive pellets being strategically inserted into the prostate. This may be a good option if your cancer is contained within the prostate and is not aggressive.
We also use radiofrequency ablation (RFA), a minimally invasive cancer treatment using heat to destroy cancer cells.
Our ongoing program of clinical trials may provide you the opportunity to take advantage of experimental drugs that offer new or improved cancer treatments.
