Genitourinary Oncology information for health professionals

Our Genitourinary (GU) Oncology Service specialises in cancers arising from the urinary tract and male reproductive system. This includes cancers of the prostate, bladder, kidney, ureter, penis, and testis

Our multidisciplinary team includes urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, nurses, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals, all working together to provide world class cancer care to patients with Genitourinary Oncology (GU) cancers. Our clinicians are all highly academic with extensive interests in research, education, and training in all aspects of cancer care. 

For prostate cancer patients, we offer active surveillance, robotic surgery, low and high dose rate brachytherapy, image-guided radiotherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy (SABR), chemotherapy, targeted therapies, and a large array of clinical trials. This fully comprehensive approach is unique within the public health system in Australia and our team are very experienced in all these approaches. 

Similarly, we provide a comprehensive range of patient-focused management options with cancers arising from the kidney, ureter, bladder, penis, and testis, and have research programs in all these areas. We work closely with our nursing and allied health colleagues to best support our patients during their cancer surgery.
