Beyond general urologic care, the highly experienced benign urology team specializes in less common procedures such as advanced perineal and abdominal reconstruction, prostate enucleation, bladder augmentation and urinary diversion, complex bladder pathology, and vaginal reconstruction.

The Fox Chase-Temple Urologic Institute will offer patients access to cutting-edge clinical trials, targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and advanced radiation therapies for the treatment of urologic cancers. Its urologic oncologists will collaborate closely with renowned medical and radiation oncologists to take a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer, including diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care.

Meeting biweekly to discuss patient cases and potential treatment options, the Institute’s team will leverage their extensive experience as one of the largest fellowship-trained genitourinary cancer teams in the country.
