Multidisciplinary approach is key to successful treatment of aggressive prostate cancer
Date:11/17/2010

All specialists must provide patients with up-to-date information on the options and be aware of the different influences that surround these men during the decision-making process.

The clinic team works with patients and referring physicians to devise treatment plans that are tailored to the individual needs of each patient.
