At the CU Cancer Center, the same caring team of doctors and support professionals will be with you throughout your entire journey, from your initial appointment and evaluation to treatment and aftercare.
- Your team is made up of experts from many fields: surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, nurses, social workers, geneticists and counselors. Most of those you’ll meet specialize specifically in urologic cancer treatment, support and rehabilitation. They review your test results, your progress and discuss the best next step in your care with each other and with you.
- All your records, consultations, test results and provider notes about you and your treatment are in an electronic medical record, available to all the doctors within the University of Colorado Hospital system who may be called in from all our specialties to help treat you.
- The Urologic Oncology team meets each week to review your care and progress. This approach allows us to compare notes to make sure you are receiving the most effective treatments. No other center in Colorado reviews your care in this manner.
- You also have access to complementary and alternative medicine through our doctor-led Center for Integrative Medicine.
- We treat the whole person. Cancer treatment at UCH is designed to support you and educate you and your entire support network.
