Your cancer team also includes urologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, social workers, nutritional experts and nurses. We also have an active group of research nurses who guide our patients into clinical trials, when appropriate.

Rex Healthcare's Genitourinary Cancer Tumor Board offers the team the opportunity to discuss difficult cases with their colleagues to determine the best treatment approaches. Data on the treatment of all cancer cases is collected in the Rex Cancer Center Registry and compiled with state and national data to track effectiveness and results.
