Brugge, Belgium

Urologisch Centrum Noord West-Vlaanderen

Our Prostate Cancer Unit 'Urologisch Noord West-Vlaanderen' consists of 8 urologists with a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, and this in all the stages. Every patient is discussed at our weekly multidisciplinary uro-oncology board with medical oncologists, radiation oncologist, nuclearists and pathologists. We have a large experience with RALP (Robot Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy) for localised prostate cancer as with locally advanced prostate cancer with extended lymphadenectomy. If necessary, a multi-modality treatment is performed. Patients with progressive or metastatic prostate cancer are all treated according to the latests guidelines and new treatments. We also do clinical studies and basic scientific research in the field of prostate cancer (liquid biopsy).
