Combined urology-radiation oncology treatment for prostate cancer patients
Deborah Kuban, M.D., professor, and Benjamin Smith, M.D., assistant professor, both in Radiation Oncology at MD Anderson, discuss a study examining the emergence of integrated urology-radiation oncology practices in Texas. They discovered prostate cancer patients generally travel further for treatment at the radiation oncology facility owned by their urologist, as opposed to traveling to the closest non-integrated facility. Kuban and Smith explain these findings.
