Opinions on Stanford Cancer Center Palo Alto CA

As part of my quest to seek a second opinion outside of Kaiser on my PC diagnosis and possible treatment options (includig Cyberknife) I am considering UCSF or Stanford. I have both friends and CSN member input on UCSF but wonder if anyone has been treated at the Stanford Cancer Center.

After diagnosis in Feb this year and even though we live in So Cal, we traveled to Palo Alto for a consult with Stanford's nationally known open & nerve sparing RP urological surgeon. We were extremely impressed with the doctor, staff, and cancer center at Stanford. Unlike your low risk PCa, my husband has intermediate risk, locally advanced non-metastatic high volume T3 PCa and ultimately decided against RP as primary tx after consults with over a 1/2 dozen different PCa specialists at leading medical centers from So Cal to No Cal. However, if he had decided to have open RP, I think Stanford would have ranked first or second for our choice to have PCa treatment. Hope this info helps in your decision process. Good luck.
