Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic
A weekly clinic for cancer patients in The Kirklin Clinic at UAB provides patients access to the three urological oncology disciplines (Urologic Oncologic Surgery, Genitourinary Radiation Oncology, Genitourinary Medical Oncology) in the same clinic setting.  This approach optimizes patient treatment given that many will require more than one approach to treat their cancer.  

If you would like to refer a patient or request an appointment with our urologic oncology specialists, please contact Phillip Bremmerman at 205-934-8051, or pbremmerman@uab.edu.

Program for Personalized Prostate Cancer Care
Drs. Nix and Rais-Bahrami are part of the UAB Program for Personalized Prostate Cancer Care, which offers a multidisciplinary approach to comprehensive prostate health. A highly personalized evaluation process is combined with the latest advancements in prostate cancer detection, including the MRI/US fusion guided prostate biopsy, which combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) technologies. This "targeted" biopsy technique is able to focus directly on the suspicious areas of the prostate, unlike the traditional method. UAB was the first medical center in Alabama and among the first in the Southeast to offer the MRI/US fusion guided prostate targeted biopsy technique, and Drs. Nix and Rais-Bahrami are two of only a select few urologists in the nation trained to utilize this technology.
