Prostate Treatments & Expertise

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men, aside from skin cancer. At UVA, we treat prostate cancer with the latest innovative treatments.

Relief for Enlarged Prostate

Our advanced treatments for relief of an enlarged prostate include:

Prostate Cancer Treatments

We treat prostate cancer with the very latest technological advances. These include:

  • Cryotherapy  freezes tumors without damaging health tissue
  • Prostatectomy  removes part of the prostate with the help of a robot
  • Brachytherapy  uses tiny radioactive “seeds” to target radiation and minimize effects on healthy tissue

Treatment Spotlight: da Vinci® Robotic Surgery

We were one of the first medical centers in Virginia to offer the da Vinci robotic prostatectomy for treatment of prostate cancer.

This procedure involves the use of a miniature camera and robotic “hands” that your doctor inserts into the body through a series of tiny incisions. These tools ensure steadiness and precision, which allows your doctor to see better and avoid damage to nearby nerves and muscles that control continence and potency.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced blood loss 
  • Reduced post-operative pain
  • Shorter hospital stays 
  • Less likelihood of side effects like impotence, incontinence and infection

We offer treatments for prostate cancer through UVA Cancer Center.
