UF Health Shands Hospital is rated High Performing for urologic care by U.S. News & World Report.

Our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate and individualized care for those diagnosed with all types of urologic cancers and malignancies, including:

Multidisciplinary urologic oncology clinic

The treatment options for all genitourinary cancers are expanding and many patients can be offered several approaches to treat their cancer. Additionally, patients will often require more than one treatment approach including surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy to achieve the best outcome. Treatment plans that include more than one type of treatment are referred to as multidisciplinary care.

At the University of Florida we embrace multidisciplinary care and work as a team to ensure we provide all patients with the most up to date, comprehensive care, centered around their unique condition. Our multidisciplinary care team focuses on the treatment of prostate, bladder, kidney, penile and testis cancers. We feel it is important for patients to be presented with and understand all of their treatment alternatives prior to starting treatment. For this reason, we encourage patients to meet with our experts from all specialties when appropriate.

Because of the excellent collaboration between our care providers, we are able to offer review of select, complex cases at our genitourinary tumor board to help guide treatment. The genitourinary tumor board aims to provide treatment recommendations following review by a team of Urologists, Radiation Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Radiologists, and Pathologists. A further advantage of our multidisciplinary approach to care is our ability to offer patients cutting edge care through clinical trials. The clinical trials we offer aim to improve existing treatment options, decrease side effects of treatments, and provide patients with treatment options after established options have failed.​

The UF Health Cancer Center received designation from the NCI because of the exceptional, multidisciplinary care the Cancer Center delivers to patients and the leading-edge clinical research conducted by its faculty. Our providers across the spectrum of cancer care work together to provide personalized care to our urologic cancer patients. Cases are presented at weekly tumor boards which are attended by physicians across multiple departments, so they can work together to develop the best treatment plan possible.

Nurse navigation

We know cancer treatment can be overwhelming and confusing, which is why we offer a nurse navigator to help guide you through the process. All aspects of patient care—from your initial visit and evaluation through your treatment, recovery and follow-up consultations—are coordinated by a dedicated nurse navigator to ensure a seamless transition from your referring physician.

During your visit, you will receive care tailored to your specific diagnosis and needs. In many cases, your care will involve multiple health care providers who work together to provide comprehensive and leading-edge cancer treatment. The nurse navigator will help make this process as smooth and easy as possible, and is always available to answer any questions you may have.
