About

I am fellowship trained in Urologic Oncology and have more than 14 years of clinical expertise in the management of urologic cancer and general urology, primarily in prostate disease clinical research, early detection, novel minimally invasive treatment applications, and prevention. I have performed more than 400 cases of cryotherapy for treatment of prostate cancer with excellent results. Also, I have successfully performed more than 500 cases of Photovaporization of the prostate for treatment of urinary symptoms related to enlarged prostate. I pioneered the 3D imaging of the prostate gland, and targeted focal therapy for prostate cancer. I also initiated the first phase I study for intraprostatic injection of Botox for the treatment of BPH.

Clinical Interest

I believe in better staging and imaging for prostate cancer as a requisite for the decision making process. My objective is preserving quality of life in cancer patients by developing individualized therapy.
