Whether it's utilizing minimally invasive surgery and non-surgical techniques such as radiation and infusion therapies, our prostate cancer specialists will suggest the best course of treatment for each cancer diagnosis and adjust that treatment along the way as necessary.
Chemotherapy is a cancer-fighting drug that can be given by mouth or through an intravenous injection (IV). Franciscan Health offers infusion therapy teams that specialize in chemotherapy cancer care.
Clinical research trials provide new ways to think about disease treatment and possible cures. While offering patients the opportunity to tap into advanced treatment options.
CT (computed tomography) guided biopsies are used to test for cancer or infection. CT scan imaging guides where the needle is placed, during which the patient will need to lie still for about 30-60 minutes.
Genetic counseling and testing can help you understand your risk for certain cancers or potential prenatal complications. Our genetic counselors offer detailed information in an understandable format to help each patient process the results.

Prostatectomy is the leading treatment for prostate cancer. Franciscan Health offers innovative, minimally invasive surgical techniques for prostatectomy that give patients less pain and a higher chance of no long-term side effects.
Radiation oncology damages cancer cells and gives us one of our strongest weapons in the fight against cancer. Franciscan Health radiation oncologists use a variety of innovative tools to treat patients with pinpoint accuracy and effectiveness.
Ultrasound guided biopsies use ultrasound imaging to guide needle placement to test for cancer or infection. This is most often used for testing breast tissue and abdominal organs.
Our experienced staff understands how emotional cancer-related diseases are for the patient and family alike. Prostate cancer patients and their loved ones can also take advantage of our support groups and educational programs to get the needed emotional support.
