After Escanaba resident Joe Crispigna noticed problems urinating, a CAT Scan revealed a small tumor on his left kidney. Quick action — and a trip down state — allowed the U.P. resident to continue a life cancer free.
Dr. Menon is known worldwide for pioneering robotic surgery for prostate cancer, a procedure that successfully removes the cancer, while offering a high probability of preserving sexual function and urinary control. His innovations have made robotic prostatectomy the surgical standard of care for prostate cancer. Since performing the first robotic prostatectomy at Henry Ford Hospital in 2001, the Vattikuti Urology Institute team remains the world’s most experienced, performing more than 7,000 procedures. We also continue to innovate techniques to improve recovery time and results for our patients.
