I believe in providing the best care for urological cancer patients includes a multidisciplinary approach as well as the most advanced technology. Working with patients in developing a treatment plan is extremely important in the treatment of urologic cancers. Patients with urologic cancers often have unique needs and these must be recognized. I hope that through the latest developments in surgery and cancer care we can provide the best urologic cancer care. I perform over 50+ robot assisted bladder removal cases per year (radical cystectomies). I perform almost all urinary diversions inside of the body with the robot and without making a larger incision.
I am very passionate about all urologic cancers, specifically bladder cancer and prostate cancer. I have a particular interest in perioperative care for all cancer patients.
