I stress patient education and shared decision making. Our prostate cancer multidisciplinary clinic focuses on reviewing the patient's status and helping them understand surgery, radiation or active surveillance options.
For kidney cancer I stress treatment of the cancer with as much preservation of the remaining kidney.
