John Theurer Cancer Center’s Urologic Oncology Division and the Prostate Cancer Institute of NJ manage all types of genitourinary cancers as well as non-malignant tumors of the urinary tract and male reproductive system.

Our multidisciplinary teams work together to provide the most advanced treatment methods available today, including minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy, brachytherapy, high-dose-rate brachytherapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, and TomoTherapy radiation systems, which have revolutionized the treatment of prostate cancer.

Our active participation in clinical research provides our patients access to novel options beyond standard therapies, particularly novel biological agents as well as immunotherapy options that are changing the field.

The da Vinci System is used by surgeons worldwide for prostatectomy and other urologic procedures. It’s a minimally invasive approach that uses the latest in surgical and robotics technologies and is beneficial for performing complex surgery. The da Vinci is a state-of-the-art surgical system that features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and special wristed instruments designed to take surgery beyond the limits of the human hand. The surgeon operating the da Vinci is 100% in control of the system, which translates his or her hand movements into smaller, more precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

JTCC was the first hospital in New Jersey to celebrate 10 years of using the da Vinci in 2010.
