Dr. Joseph Klink, Urologic Oncologist
Deaconess Clinic

Urologic oncologists are surgeons who specialize in treating cancer of the urinary tract and male reproductive organs,including prostate, penile and testicular cancer in men and kidney and bladder cancer in women. They have completed training in the
surgical treatment of cancer patients and concentrate their practice in cancer surgery, including complex surgical procedures, with careful attention given to quality-of life issues. Every treatment plan includes consideration of how normal body function can be maintained or restored after surgery. A urologic oncologist may be involved in finding out the type and extent of cancer and may be involved in providing treatments such as chemotherapy.
