Expert Care for Prostate Cancer

Minimally invasive surgical techniques and fertility preservation for prostate cancer

Receiving a diagnosis of prostate cancer can be worrisome. But at the Henry Ford Cancer Institute, we know that if prostate cancer is found early, the odds for successful treatment are high. Better yet, sometimes prostate cancer may be watched carefully and may not require immediate treatment.

Our tumor board will do a thorough analysis of your diagnosis and treatment options. When treatment is needed, our team of experts will collaborate with you to devise a personalized treatment plan based on your needs. They’ll also help you analyze the best options for fertility preservation.

If you decide to have a recommended surgical procedure, the most advanced and minimally invasive surgical options will be used whenever possible. Our surgeons are world-wide experts with outstanding experience in the development of surgical techniques and technology for prostate cancer. To monitor your progress and recovery, members of the tumor board will meet weekly and discuss your case.

You don’t have to manage prostate cancer by yourself. We will support you by arranging for a special nurse navigator to help you schedule appointments and explain what you can expect as you go through treatment and recovery. We provide fertility preservation options, and consultations with experts can be arranged within 24 hours.

Members of our cancer team are available 24/7. Call us at:
