The Dr. Ernest W. Ramsey Manitoba Prostate Centre  is the provincial centre for prostate disease and functions as a centre of excellence for coordinated, timely access to diagnosis and therapy of both benign and malignant diseases of the prostate. A multidisciplinary team of urologic surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, nurses, a psychosocial clinician and registered dietician provide assessment, diagnostics, treatment and support for men with prostate disease.

The team aims to provide:
  • coordinated, timely access to a multi-disciplinary team of health care professionals for men with prostate disease, both benign and malignant
  • evidence-based care to men with prostate disease
  • assessment, diagnosis and treatment in a timely manner
  • education for patients and their families
  • supportive care for men and their families
  • coordinated access to additional resources as necessary

You may be referred to the Prostate Centre by your urologist or family physician for assessment and diagnosis by our health care team. This does not mean that you have cancer. There are a number of treatments available for prostate disease and our team will help you to decide which treatment is best for you.


These services are available to all men in Manitoba through the Manitoba Prostate Centre:
  • physician consultation for the diagnosis and treatment of benign prostate disease and prostate cancer
  • diagnostic procedures including biopsy and cystoscopy

Additional Services

The following additional services are available to all men who have prostate cancer and their partners/families. You do not need a physician referral for these services. For more information on each service; please click on the service title for additional information:


Another component of the Manitoba Prostate Centre's mandate is to conduct research. Working in partnership with the Manitoba Institute of Cell Biology, a joint institute of CancerCare Manitoba and the University of Manitoba, the Centre is engaged in translational research into earlier diagnosis and molecular markers of prostate cancer.
