Prior to your appointment you will be asked to gather certain medical information pertinent to your general health and any information that you may have related to your prostate cancer diagnosis.
Patients travel from around the world to The Mount Sinai Hospital for robotic treatment of prostate cancer. Our doctors are amongst the most experienced in offering robotic prostatectomy and have published extensively on surgical cancer outcomes and quality of life outcomes. Our doctors have performed more than 6,500 robotic prostate surgeries.
In addition, we are leaders in the latest technology for diagnosis and staging. This includes fusion MRI prostate biopsy, where biopsies are conducted using high quality MRI guidance. This can provide more accurate prostate cancer staging versus traditional prostate biopsy. Our interest is in tailoring treatment to an individual's particular prostate cancer. This may mean surgical treatment, radiation, or active surveillance.
Care for patients traveling from abroad will be coordinated by the Department of Urology and Mount Sinai's International Patient Services. We will coordinate transfer of relevant medical records, schedule additional exams with our vast network of complementary physicians, arrange for your hotel stay, and ensure your trip to The Mount Sinai Hospital is comfortable and effective. We offer translation services for those who prefer to communicate in their native language.
International patients interested in prostate cancer care or MRI fusion biopsy should contact our dedicated patient coordinator at 646-574-8233.
