I received my urologic training in the 1990s, when most major urologic procedures were performed using a traditional open surgical technique, and when the mantra was “big surgery, big incision.” It was here that my passion began for finding a better, less-invasive surgical approach to perform these complex procedures. Soon after completing a minimally invasive fellowship in urology and joining NYU Langone, I was introduced to robotic-assisted surgery, and it was immediately obvious to me that by employing this technology, my goals would be realized. By embracing the technology early, I have performed more robotic partial nephrectomies and upper urinary tract reconstructions than any surgeon in New York City, and am now one of the top 10 urologists in the city performing robotic prostate removal, known as prostatectomy. Equally important to me is providing the most personalized and highest quality approach to each individual's condition or disease. This includes spending time with each of my patients in order to understand their concerns and to make sure all their questions are answered, so that they are full partners in the decision and treatment process. As the inaugural director of NYU Langone's Robotic Surgery Center, I've worked to build a world-class multidisciplinary center of excellence. Since the program's establishment in 2008, it has grown to become the premier academic multispecialty robotic surgery program in New York City, with more than 25 surgeons practicing across six surgical disciplines and performing more then 1,800 robotic surgeries per year. My enthusiasm for robotic surgery extends to education and training, and each year I travel nationally and internationally to teach advanced robotic surgical techniques. I am also the director of the NYU Multispecialty Robotic Surgery Course, the largest annual robotic surgery course in New York City. Since joining NYU Langone, I am proud to have been recognized by Castle Connolly's New York Top Doctors, America's Top Doctors, and Top Doctors for Cancer, as well as in New York Magazine's annual Top Doctors issue. In addition, I have been awarded the Patients' Choice Award and the Compassionate Doctor Award.
