I’m a urologist trained in minimally invasive and robotic urologic surgery. I use the da Vinci robotic system to treat cancers primarily of the bladder, prostate, of the kidney, and of the ureter. Robotic technology doesn’t mean that the robot is actually doing the operation. It is a computerized interface that we use to enhance the surgeon’s ability to see and do maneuvers within the body that you can’t do because your hands are too large to fit into a small incision — or areas that are difficult to visualize with the naked eye.
The most rewarding part of my job is seeing a patient come back to the office after surgery — whether it be the earliest of the follow-up appointments or whether it be several months down the road — and having that person say to you, “I’m finally back to doing the things that I enjoy and love.”
