About Me

Member of the Henry Ford Cancer

Biographical Statement

I specialize in robotic surgery for prostate cancer offering several technique alternatives, including the Retzius-sparing technique, which is associated with better urination control recovery after surgery as compared to the conventional technique. I also specialize in robotic surgery for kidney cancer, adrenal tumors and bladder cancer, as well as surgical management of testicular and penile cancers. Besides Oncology, I perform robotic surgery for blockages of the ureter, including robotic pyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction obstruction and robotic ureteroplasty or ureteral reimplant for ureteral strictures.
