Advances In Prostate And Other Urological Cancers

Urologists David Key, MD, and Mark Monsour, MD, both certified physicians with MD Anderson Cancer Network®, have been instrumental in expanding technology tools to improve prostate cancer care. One of our most exciting advances has been the UroNav Fusion Biopsy robotic technology. Funded by the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation, UroNav allows the urologist excellent visualization and precision to remove a portion of the prostate tumor without surgery. It can also be used to diagnose and help manage prostate cancer and is helpful in planning for robotic surgery and radiation therapy.  

Erik Weise, MD, a certified physician with MD Anderson Cancer Network®, and Spencer Hill, MD, perform advanced robotic surgery to remove prostate cancer. Other treatment options include chemotherapy, palliative care, immunotherapy that stimulates the body's immune system, bone-strengthening drugs to increase bone mass and prevent fractures, and medicines that help slow the progression or kill cancer cells in the prostate.

Men experiencing advanced prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body – such as the bones, lymph nodes, or liver – can rely on guidance and support from our urologists and multidisciplinary care team in the Advanced Prostate Cancer Center at Miami Valley Hospital South.

In addition to prostate cancer, urology specialists across all Premier Health facilities manage bladder and kidney cancers for patients in Southwest Ohio.
