St. Paul and Woodbury, MN (June 19, 2015) – Metro Urology and Minnesota Oncology this month launched a new partnership to provide a Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic for their patients.  Metro Urology physicians specializing in urologic cancer will collaborate with Minnesota Oncology Maplewood Cancer Center physicians Vladimir Hugec, MD and Robert Delaune, MD.

The Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic provides coordinated care for patients who have been diagnosed with urologic cancers such as bladder cancer, prostate cancer, or kidney cancer. By allowing the patient to see two providers in one location, the Clinic offers convenience and saves time for cancer patients.  In addition, this collaborative approach to care improves patient care and quality.

“By offering these services in one location, we can make life easier for our patients,” said Randy Thompson, executive director at Minnesota Oncology. “We are excited to partner with Metro Urology to make it more convenient for our patients to receive the care they need.”

In urology and oncology, some of the patients we treat have extremely complex problems which require input from different types of specialists,” said Aaron Milbank, MD, president of Metro Urology.  “The idea behind the combined Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic is that we can provide these services and opinions for our patients at one time and under one roof.”

The Clinic will be held at Metro Urology’s office in Woodbury, Minn., on the first Monday of each month from 1-5 p.m. Metro Urology and Minnesota Oncology providers and staff will coordinate the patients’ appointments.
