The Prostate Center at Lombardi has a quality of life approach to treatment. Men seeking care at the Prostate Center have access to highly experienced surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, prostate cancer nurses and counselors. These professionals are complemented by an array of supportive services including social workers, nutritional counseling, and pastoral care.
A key factor in ensuring quality of life for a prostate cancer patient is making sure he receives the least invasive treatment strategy with the fewest lasting side effects. At the Prostate Center, patient care incorporates the latest in advanced technology (including the da Vinci surgical system and the CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgical system), providing a range of minimally invasive options for treatment.
The Prostate Center’s well-established clinical team, supported by dedicated clinical nurse coordinators and patient navigators, provides the best care available for men, with a focus on preserving quality of life in the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis – care of the whole person.
This tradition is found throughout Georgetown University Hospital, which is home to Lombardi and the Prostate Center.
