Advanced Prostate Cancer Program

OUR PROGRAM

The treatment of advanced prostate cancer has significantly changed over the past few years and treatment options have greatly expanded. Garden State Urology has developed a program specializing in care and treatment of men with advanced prostate cancer. Garden State Urology has offices in multiple locations throughout Morris County with the Advanced Prostate Cancer Program being located at 16 Eden Lane in Whippany, NJ. Once referred by your Urologist, you will meet with one of our four Advanced Prostate Cancer Doctors. This physician and team will then follow you specifically for the care of your prostate cancer.

UNDERSTANDING YOU OPTIONS WHEN PROSTATE CANCER HAS SPREAD

When this happens, your healthcare provider will say the cancer has “metastasized.” The medical term for this condition is castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).
