Costas Lallas, MD, professor at Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, discusses multidisciplinary care for genitourinary (GU) malignancies.

More and more patients with GU malignancies are being treated with multidisciplinary teams rather than solely urologists or medical oncologists.

Through this, many patients are receiving a treatment combination of cytotoxic chemotherapy and immunotherapy, Lallas says. He advises urologists that they must become familiar with the combination, as treatment is no longer just in the hands of the medical oncologist.
