Division Chief

Director, GU Cancer - Disease Oriented Strategic Planning Team

Our doctors are experts in understanding the ways state of the art technology is paving the future in the treatment of urologic diseases. Not more than 20 years ago was it customary for doctors to perform open surgery for the treatment of kidney, bladder, and prostate diseases. Our faculty is fellowship trained urologic surgeons focusing on treatment of urologic cancers, pelvic prolapse and incontinence procedures for women and men, prostate disease, and reconstructive urology. We seek to advance the diagnostic and therapeutic options for treating the entire spectrum of urologic disease by focusing on the Mission to Innovate, to Cultivate, to Heal. 

Innovative Technology

Application of technology advances in nanotechnology, fusion MRI for improved diagnosis of prostate cancer, as well as bipolar TUR and laser treatment make it possible for our doctors to minimize the threat of urologic cancers and benign obstructive disease. Advances in fighting cancer will improve with our research investigations into precision medicine to better understand how to diagnosis, predict, and treat the disease to help our patients. The skill and craft of our doctors in performing minimally invasive procedures are enhanced by the assistance of Da Vinci Robot which we now have 4 robots within our institutions. 

The Results

The results are shorter recovery times, less pain, smaller incisions, and improved quality of life.
