A CU Medicine provider.

I believe that by working in such a wonderful environment at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, we can provide the most current therapy as well be involved in research to improve outcomes for patients with urologic cancer.

My clinical philosophy for patient care is to first listen to the patient’s concerns and needs. Then, I assess the patient’s condition and previous testing and labs in order to explain my evaluation and offer my recommendations. I believe it is important to make sure the patient and family understand their condition as well as possible to enable us all to make the plan of care together, as a team.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife, my son, and family. We love to travel and experience foreign languages and cultures, specifically the time we spend in Italy. I enjoy being active and being in the wonderful Colorado outdoors (Golf, Skiing, Basketball, Soccer, Running), but also try to find time to relax and enjoy reading, both fiction and non-fiction.

Clinical interest for patients

My interest in caring for children, adolescents and young adults with urologic cancer has guided my training and career development. For that reason, after completing my residency in Urology and Urologic Surgery, I pursued fellowship training in both urologic oncology (cancer treatment) and pediatric urology. This allows me to provide care to children, adolescents, and adults with testicular cancer at both “adult” and “pediatric” hospitals.

I am involved with kidney and testicular cancer both as a clinician and as a researcher. My particular areas of focus include my work as the Surgical Discipline Lead for the Children’s Oncology Group Renal Tumor Committee, a Panel Member for the NCCN Testicular Cancer Guidelines, the Lead for our Hereditary Renal Cancer Program and our VHL Clinical Care Center, and the Co-Director of the Surgical Oncology Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado

Specifically, the cancers and tumors in children, adolescents, and adults that I treat include:
Kidney tumors (Wilms Tumor, Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC), Angiomyolipomas(AML))
Testicular and Para-testicular tumors (Germ Cell Tumors, Rhabdomyosarcomas)
Pelvic Tumors (Bladder and Prostate Rhabdomyosarcomas)
Adrenal Tumors (Pheochromocytoma, Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma)
Tumor predisposition syndromes such as von Hippel Lindau, Tuberous Sclerosis, and Birt-Hogg-Dube.

I also am interested in the use of minimally invasive surgery (robotic-assisted laparoscopy, laparoscopy, single-site laparoscopy, and endoscopy) for all variety of urologic conditions.

Research interest for patients

My Research Interests include:
(1) Clinical trials for children, adolescents, and young adults with urologic tumors and cancers, specifically surgical and long-term outcomes in this population.
(2) Understanding the background science, genetics, and developing new therapies in Wilms tumor, Renal Cell Carcinoma and Testicular Tumors.
