At North Shore University Hospital, physicians and surgeons treating prostate cancer collaborate with expert specialists at the North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute. The organization has long been known as an innovative provider of prostate cancer treatment, due to its application of newly developed surgical and nonsurgical treatment options. Patients at the hospital may take advantage of the system’s advanced radiation therapies as well as industry-leading cryotherapies, hormone therapies, and other progressive methodologies.

The institute’s surgeons command in-depth experience in minimally invasive surgical techniques, which provide an alternative to the traditional “open” prostatectomy. In this regard, institute surgeons use the da Vinci® Surgical System to remove the prostate through only a few small incisions. In fact, the Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique, an industry-leading robotic prostatectomy method, came to the industry through one of the institute’s expert surgeons. This technique allows the removal of the prostate with no cutting of pelvic structures, which in turn lessens pain as well as recovery time.
