Urology Expert 528832 CA(S)

Expertise Description

I have more than 15 years' experience in a wide range of urology practice. I brought the first da Vinci Robot –“S” generation west of the Mississippi in 2005 to a medical center in Burbank, CA where I have been Chief of Urology for many years. I have performed several hundred robotic operations in all urologic sub-specialties including robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer, robotic nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy for kidney cancers, robotic pyelolithotomy for staghorn stones, robotic pyelopasty for UPJ obstruction, and robotic sacroculpopexy for female pelvic prolapsed. I have also performed microsurgery for vasectomy reversals, extensive experience with shock wave and laser treatments of kidney stones, and all levels of office procedures ranging from prostate biopsies to office circumcisions in adults to vasectomies, all numbering in the thousands. My background and training includes M.D. degree at Cornell University and my urologic residency training at Cornell-New York Presbyterian Hospitals and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I have experience offering my services for over 10 years as a urology expert witness and am clear and concise with outstanding communication skills both in chart review and for deposition and courtroom testimony.
