Services and Treatments

At Skyline Urology, our multidisciplinary approach to treating urologic cancers includes the following:

  • Surgical options, such as minimally-invasive robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and cryosurgery, among other procedures
  • Chemotherapy, including standard drug treatments and treatments with  innovative new cancer drugs available through participation in research studies known as clinical trials.
  • Radiation therapy, utilizing the latest in radiation technology to deliver treatment safely and effectively, minimizing the risk to healthy tissue 

Skyline Urology physicians collaborate in the development of clinical pathways to ensure optimal cancer treatment for each patient.  Our physicians follow each patient from diagnosis through treatment and beyond, watching for any signs of recurrence and offering treatment options for advanced cancers as needed.

Additional services offered by Skyline’s urological cancer experts include:

  • Second opinions – It’s important to have a precise diagnosis and evaluate all possible treatment options before receiving any cancer therapy.  Skyline Urology physicians are available to offer patients a second opinion on a diagnosis they may have received elsewhere, to ensure that every individual is armed with the latest information and treatment options to fight their cancer.
  • MRI-fusion prostate biopsy - Also known as targeted biopsy, this procedure involves the direct sampling of suspicious tissue using sophisticated Magnetic Resonance Imaging technology.  The MRI allows physicians to visualize the tumor – such as a prostate cancer – and fuse the MRI images with real-time ultrasound images, resulting in a highly-accurate method of biopsy done quickly in a clinical setting with the patient undergoing local anesthesia.
  • Active surveillance -- Sometimes the physician will advise a patient to hold off on treatment.  For example, about half of Skyline’s prostate cancer patients receive expert attention with no treatment, a strategy known as active surveillance.  Skyline’s urology experts will evaluate how aggressive the cancer appears to be and the general health condition of the patient. If appropriate, the patient may receive quarterly check-ups and an annual biopsy to determine if and when treatment is recommended.
  • Genetic testing – Skyline offers highly personalized genetic testing to determine an individual patient’s genetic predisposition to develop a urological cancer.  The testing may involve a mouthwash or blood test.  The sample is analyzed to determine if you inherited a gene mutation that might contribute to your diagnosis – or recurrence - of a particular cancer.
  • Cancer screening – Understanding your risk factors for a urological cancer and following recommended screening guidelines is critically important.  Your Skyline urologist can talk with you about your individual cancer risk and recommend an appropriate screening regimen to detect cancer of the prostate, bladder, kidney or testes at an early stage, when treatment is more likely to be effective.
