Helsinki Urological Cancer Research Group centers around the clinical and academic work done at the HUS Helsinki University Hospital and Helsinki University. Department of urology is the largest in Finland with an catchment area of ca. 1.5M inhabitants and 25 staff members. Our center is a tertiary referral center for centralized surgery (e.g. Cystectomy, prostatectomy, urethraplasty, RPLND) but at the same time also responsible for the primary diagnostics, treatments and follow-up of all urological cancers in greater Helsinki area.
