As with any cancer diagnosis, prostate cancer affects each person differently. No two cases are alike.
At The Christ Hospital Prostate Cancer Collaborative, our dedicated staff of health professionals takes an individual approach to evaluating and treating the most complex cases. Our multidisciplinary team of cancer experts includes urologists, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists with extensive experience in treating the disease. These experts work together to perform a complete review of each patient’s medical record in order to develop a comprehensive, fully-integrated prostate cancer treatment plan that best suits the individual needs of the patient.

How the Second Opinion Clinic Works
The Second Opinion Clinic is most appropriate for patients who would benefit from multi-specialty care or who are seeking a second opinion on treatment.
The clinics are held the second Monday of each month. Patients may call 513-585-3138 to schedule an appointment for the clinic.
Once the patient is scheduled, he will meet with a specially trained nurse and the team of physicians, together in one room, to discuss his diagnosis and the team’s recommend course of treatment. The team will also answer any question the patient may have.
After the consultation, our care team will keep the patient’s referring physician informed of any treatment recommendations discussed and will encourage the patient to continue to see his referring physician.
"With so many treatment option available, it is important for the patient to receive the complete picture of what those options are and choose what is best for him."
