Overview

Dr. Peter Ruff completed his medical degree at The University of Texas Medical School San Antonio, and his residency at the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Ruff also completed a subspecialty Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic and Robotic surgery in San Antonio. Dr. Ruff sees both male and female patients, and has a special interest in minimally invasive robotic surgery for the treatment of prostate, kidney and bladder cancers and as well as urologic malformations. Dr. Ruff has utilized the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System for urologic cancer for many years. In December 2018, he was recognized by Intuitive Surgical – developers of the da Vinci Robot – for having completed 1,000 da Vinci robotic surgeries, a significant milestone for Dr. Ruff on a local and national basis. In April 2019, he and Dr. Carl Bischoff were trained on the new daVinci SP (Single Port) Surgical System – the latest generation of daVinci Robotic devices that allows surgical access through one incision (or port) and 360 degree maneuverability. Drs. Ruff and Bischoff were designated as the 14th and 15th surgeons in the world to be trained on this system. Dr. Ruff can now employ the single port robot to perform surgeries for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) voiding symptoms, radical prostatectomies, radical cystectomies, partial and radical nephrectomies, robot pyeloplasty, as well as other reconstructive urological procedures involving the kidneys, ureters and bladder. St. David’s South Austin is the official observation and peer-to-peer teaching site for the daVinci Single Port System. Dr. Peter Ruff has been named their robotic surgery coordinator and is instructing physicians both nationally and worldwide on this system. In addition, Dr. Ruff accepted an invitation to speak at the 2019 World Congress of Endourology in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to share his experience with the daVinci SP platform. Dr. Ruff is a member of the American Urological Association, the Society of Laparoscopic Surgeons, the Texas Urological Society, the Texas Medical Association, and the Travis County Medical Society. He is currently chair of the Robotic Steering Committee for South Austin Medical Center. He lives in Austin with his wife and two daughters, and enjoys all outdoor activities including hunting and fishing. Dr. Ruff has been recognized as a ‘Top Doctor’ under the category of Urology in the January 2019 edition of Austin Monthly Magazine. He also received this designation in 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. He is currently seeing patients at our Austin South #2, Bastrop, and LaGrange locations. Contact Urology Austin to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ruff. Office Locations and Hours
