Meet Dr. Aaron Laine
Genitourinary cancer specialist in Dallas
For cancer patients seeking answers to questions about genitourinary (GU) cancer, including cancers of the bladder, kidney, urethra, prostate, and testes, Aaron Laine, M.D., Ph.D., is an exceptional resource.
“Many times we see patients who have already been diagnosed, and they are wondering what the next step is,” Dr. Laine says. “People bounce from place to place, perhaps getting blood work here and imaging there. Nobody has sat down and put it all together for them.
“Part of the service I try to provide is being well-versed and knowledgeable enough to inform them of all the available options. Then I can help patients intelligently weigh the pros and cons of each treatment approach.”
As a physician who specializes in GU cancer, Dr. Laine is familiar with every type, stage, and presentation of the disease. He welcomes patients who need a second opinion or who feel they have run out of options.
“We offer many clinical trials here at UT Southwestern, something for almost every disease site,” Dr. Laine says. “Our genitourinary team in particular has been leading new developments in prostate and kidney cancer; it’s very encouraging.
“I believe that empowering patients with knowledge can make a big difference in their experience of dealing with cancer.”
