At AAU, we strive to provide the highest quality and most comprehensive care for our patients.
Our Advanced Prostate Cancer Clinic (APCC) was established to provide our patients the most up-to-date care using consensus guidelines established by the American Urological Association and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
These guidelines along with expert opinions optimize quality of life and enable patients to take advantage of the most novel, life-extending treatment options.
Treatment for advanced prostate cancer can be complex and daunting for any patient and his family. The algorithm is complex involving multifaceted modalities including hormonal therapies, immunotherapies, oral oncolytics, systemic chemotherapies, radiotherapies, and clinical trials. These medications can be used solely or in tandem, but the decision is made after careful treatment planning with the patient and his family. At AAU, we provide extensive patient education, counseling, and consideration of your personal treatment goals prior to starting any new treatment. This enables you and your loved ones to make specialized determinations about which treatments are best for you. Our APCC is directed by Dr. Zhu and NP Kati Watts. Please ask your physician about the program.
