Compassionate Cancer Care in KC


At Kansas City Urology and Oncology, we know that having the latest technology is extremely important, but we also know that there’s more to healthcare than medicine and machines. The mind and body both play a critical role in healing. At KCUC, you see the best in KC. But more important than that, we see you too. We mean we really see you, the patient.

Patient-Centered Urology and Oncology Care

To deliver the most compassionate cancer care in KC, the doctors, nurses, staff, and everyone that you come into contact with at KCUC are focused on you. We call it Patient-First care. The world of healthcare can be challenging – both for the caregivers and care receivers. Staying at the forefront of all of the new medical advances (like proton therapy at our Kansas City Proton Institute) to ensure we are offering the very best and latest care takes dedication and perseverance. Making sure we hire the right people and give them the tools and support they need to do their jobs to the best of their abilities is paramount as well. In the hectic day-to-day, it’s easy to lose sight of the real reason we chose this profession – the patients.

A Holistic Approach to Healthcare

We want patients to know that beyond our technological and medical prowess, KCUC is deeply committed to providing compassionate care. Recognizing the immense emotional and physical toll of a cancer diagnosis and treatment, we place a strong emphasis on supporting patients’ emotional well-being along with their physical health. This holistic approach to care is a cornerstone of KCUC’s philosophy, ensuring that patients and their families are supported through every step of their treatment journey.

We See the Body & the Mind

Of course, we see the patient and what is physically wrong and we focus our efforts on healing the body. But we also see beyond the physical into the mental and emotional journey they are on. We see them as a whole person and do all we can to make their experience less stressful, less scary, easier.

Personalized Convenient Care

KCUC has over 30 locations in and around the metro area that all follow this Patient-First model of care. Our many office locations make accessing the best doctors in urology and oncology easier by bringing urology and oncology care closer to home for thousands. Besides saving long drives to the hospital, our offices provide a more personalized, friendly, less intimidating experience than a large hospital can. It’s the best of both worlds – compassionate cancer care in KC with all the advantages of cutting-edge technology and medical expertise.

Experience Patient-First Care

With our state-of-the-art technology, dedicated team of professionals, and commitment to patient-centered care, KCUC is changing the landscape of cancer treatment. Every aspect of the patient experience is designed to reduce stress and facilitate healing. Our holistic approach, which values patients’ emotional and physical well-being equally, ensures a supportive and nurturing environment throughout the cancer treatment journey.

Beacon of Hope and Innovation

Healthy Kansas City magazine chose to feature Kansas City Proton Institute in their magazine. In their article, they said, “The word ‘cancer’ is one of the most concerning, fearful, and isolating words in our language. The Kansas City Proton Institute (KCPI) team powered by KCUC aims to change that by blending cutting-edge technology delivered in a more comfortable office setting.”

“As the newest addition to the United States’ roster of proton therapy centers, and uniquely distinguished as the only non-hospital-based facility of its kind in the central U.S., KCPI represents a significant leap forward in the fight against cancer. Opening its doors in October 2023, this 34,000-square-foot center has quickly positioned itself as one of the most sought-after destinations for cancer care, underscoring the demand for more advanced and patient-centered treatment options.”
