About Genitourinary Cancers

Diverse types of genitourinary cancer are treated by our team of urological oncologists in a multidisciplinary setting. See below for list of conditions that we treat and clinical services offered.

Patients with complex cases are presented at a weekly multidisciplinary Genitourinary Tumor Board, with discussants including urology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, radiology (diagnostic and interventional) and pathology. We are a frequent site of second opinions from surrounding communities.

Call (603) 650-5091 if you have additional questions or desire a consultation for discussion of one of these conditions.

  1. Kidney cancer
    • Surgical therapy with partial nephrectomy or radical nephrectomy
    • Minimally invasive (laparoscopic and robotic-assisted) as well as open surgery
    • Percutaneous ablative therapy (radiofrequency ablation and cryotherapy)
    • Active surveillance
    • Renal mass biopsy for diagnostic purposes
    • Cytoreductive nephrectomy
    • Systemic therapy for metastatic disease
  2. Bladder cancer/transitional cell carcinoma
    • Office management/endoscopy
    • Intravesical therapy for high risk, non-invasive bladder cancer
    • Surgical endoscopic treatment, e.g. transurethral resection of bladder tumor
    • Neoadjuvant/adjuvant chemotherapy for metastatic/high risk disease
    • Radical cystectomy/pelvic lymphadenectomy by open or robotic-assisted approaches
    • Partial cystectomy
