Urologic Cancer Program
The Department of Urology at UI Health offers the most advanced diagnostics and therapies available for urologic cancers, including open and laparoscopic surgery, robot-assisted surgery, radiation therapy (IGRT and IMRT), chemotherapy and combination therapies, and newer technologies including therapies only available in clinical trials. On this page, we discuss our treatments for Urological disorders including Prostate Cancer, Renal Cancer/Kidney Tumor, Bladder Cancer, and Testicular Cancer.
Advanced Treatment for Prostate Cancer
During an annual physical, Loren Kramer learned he had both an enlarged prostate and an elevated PSA level. A biopsy showed early-stage prostate cancer.
When deciding on treatment options, Loren chose the Robotic Surgery Program at UI Health, which is the only program in Chicago and one of the few in the country to utilize the Single Port Robotic System for urologic surgical procedures — which allows for surgical access through a single, small incision.
Just a few weeks after surgery, Loren was back to living his life. Says Loren: “I’m thrilled to be sitting here to say thank you to UI Health and Dr. Crivellaro because … I feel 99% of where I was — and best of all, I’m cancer-free!”
