We’re on a Mission to Advance Cancer Care

Commission on Cancer Accreditation

We’ve been accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) through the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). This accreditation was obtained through an extensive evaluation and ensures a commitment to quality care, the use of proper infrastructure and improved patient outcomes.

Your Personalized Treatment Plan

Our leading specialists develop a course of action that considers your medical history, current health, the type of cancer you have been diagnosed with and the available therapies. From traditional treatments like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, to alternative therapies and clinical trials, your treatment team will consider every facet of your health and build a plan that puts some of the most advanced medical research and procedures to work for you.

Oncology experts at AdventHealth Cancer Institute work closely with the world's leading researchers to develop new therapies and more personalized treatment planning for patients. As a result, we provide several types of targeted therapies, including hormone therapy that more precisely identify and attack cancer cells.

If your prostate cancer appears to be located entirely inside your prostate gland, our skilled surgeons can remove the prostate and surrounding tissue, preserving as much of the surrounding nerves and blood vessels as possible.

Surgery (Radical Prostatectomy) 

Targeted Therapy

Brachytherapy is a method of using radiation to treat cancer by placing radioactive “seeds” inside or very close to a tumor. These seeds are smaller than a grain of rice and treat tumors from the inside out. This treatment option can significantly reduce the need for frequent radiation treatments and typically has shorter recovery times than traditional treatment.


If your treatment plan includes radiation therapy, SpaceOAR — a small hydrogel spacer — may be used as a natural barrier, protecting the rectum from the high-dose radiation region. This innovative, protective gel barrier is applied during a minimally invasive procedure and is eventually naturally absorbed by your body.


American College of Radiology Accreditation for Radiation Oncology 

We’ve been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety. 

For men, prostate cancer is the most common solid-organ tumor diagnosis and the second leading cause of death due to cancer. In this video, Vipul Patel, MD, FACS, talks about AdventHealth Cancer Institute’s highly successful treatment strategies, as well as the importance of regular screening.

Hear From Our Experts

When caught early, prostate cancer can be successfully treated. Yet it's still one of the leading causes of cancer death among men. Why? Because too many men don't get screened regularly.
