Prostate Cancer Program

  • The Prostate Cancer Program at United Hospital is provides the care and treatment of patients with prostate cancer. Integrated care is provided in conjunction with our partners at Minnesota Oncology.

    One of the most common treatments for prostate cancer is the surgical removal of the entire prostate, known as radical prostatectomy. If your doctor recommends surgery to treat your prostate cancer, you may be a candidate for a less invasive procedure using the da Vinci® robot. This innovative approach is the fastest growing treatment for prostate cancer today. Learn more about robotic surgery for prostate cancer.
