Kidney Cancer Program

The UCLA Kidney Cancer Program is the largest in the world, treats over 2,000 patients per year and offers both standard and experimental therapies.  The program's staff is an integrated, multidisciplinary team of specialists in urology, oncology, radiology, and other related specialties.

The program offers the most modern treatment options and is dedicated to the highest standard of patient care. In a single comprehensive office visit, patients are assessed by urologic surgeons that specialize in kidney cancer, by oncologists that specialize in the treatment of advanced kidney cancer, and by nurses that specialize in the care of kidney cancer patients. This team of specialists discusses each individual patient to determine a personalized treatment recommendation.  This approach promotes regular communication between team members and seamless integration of medical care. 

After the evaluation, our team of specialists recommends a treatment plan. Standard therapies are offered first. However, clinical research trials are available for patients who are not candidates for standard treatment or who do not respond to standard treatment.
