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
