A Urologic Oncologist is specially trained in cancers of the urinary tracts of men and women, including cancers of the kidney, bladder, prostate, testes and genitalia. At Ochsner, the Division of Urological Oncology focuses on complex surgical problems, using organ and nerve sparing techniques, when possible, to preserve urinary, sexual and reproductive functions.

Innovative therapies are available through various research protocols, including on-going trials in the prevention and treatment of early disease as well as advanced or metastatic disease. For example, Ochsner has been a pioneer in the implantation of radioactive seeds for the treatment of prostate cancer.
