Urologic cancers affect organs in the urinary and reproductive systems, including the bladder, kidneys, testicles, and prostate. University of Colorado Health specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.
We provide comprehensive care—including screening tests and second opinion consultations—at locations across the Front Range.

Precision treatment with da Vinci® robotic-assisted aurgery
When you choose UCHealth, you gain access to surgeons experienced in the precision technology of robotic-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Si system. This advanced technology enables our highly experienced physicians to perform minimally invasive procedures for urologic conditions using smaller incisions, more detailed images inside the body, and precise control of the instruments. For many patients this means a faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay.
Your medical team may also recommend participation in a clinical trial. University of Colorado Health conducts hundreds of these “trials” of new treatments or drugs. Participation in a clinical trial may provide those who qualify with access to drugs and vaccines years before they are widely available.
