The Doctor's Doctor

When Oregon urologist Dr. John Barry was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he traveled 1,969 miles to the world's most experienced team at the Vattikuti Urology Institute.

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.

Patients seeking the best care have traveled to Detroit from all 50 states and every continent – including Antarctica – to receive treatment from the urologists at Henry Ford. With our innovative, multidisciplinary approach, we are also the training center for surgeons around the globe in robotic prostate surgery, kidney and adrenal surgery, bladder surgery and pediatric urologic procedures.
