Diagnosis and Prevenction
In the diagnostic area, Auxologico is the only centre in Italy to offer the Urogenetics Service with diagnostic paths aimed at calculating the risk of developing prostate cancer in people who are familiar with this type of tumour and for which the genetic element is paramount.
In terms of early diagnosis, Auxologico also offers 3Tesla high-field magnetic resonance imaging and innovative tests like RM fusion prostate biopsy and the search for circulating tumour cells in the blood.
Centre for Urotechnology
Surgery procedures take place at the Centre for Urotechnology in Milan a modern surgical unit run by internationally renowned surgeons, for the treatment of urological and andrological diseases using minimally invasive surgery techniques. These techniques provide unquestionable advantages: greater precision of intervention and reduced invasiveness, with less pain for the patient and shorter hospital stays.
The clinicians work in close synergy with the Auxologico Urological Research Laboratory. This collaboration ensures that healthcare professionals are constantly updated on the latest scientific evidence for the treatment of urological diseases and that they can use the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic protocols.
