Having been a Urologist for 20 years, I find that my relationship with my patients is central to their optimal care. I take time to get to know them and their ‘care team’ including their extended family. I get to know their expectations, life philosophies and help them realize that every decision we make regarding their care is a shared decision. My patients are aware of the standard of care guidelines to manage their conditions, but I always counsel my patients on all the available options and allow them to make a tailored decision for themselves.

September is prostate cancer awareness month. Since prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer in men, starting at age 45 for those at an increased risk and age 50 for those at an average risk, screening options are available to help catch cancer at an early stage. Take charge of your health and schedule with your primary care provider to discuss family history and risk factors to determine if screening is right for you.

As a board certified urologist, my training at the University of Chicago Hospitals has provided me extensive training in all aspects of Urologic care. I utilize the most current techniques to treat my patients and am especially interested in the Davinci Robotic platform which i have used since 2006. The partners in my practice have performed well over 1,500 robotic cases over this period of time which includes surgery for the prostate, bladder, ureter and kidney.
Aside from spending time with my lovely family and friends, I am interested in travel, creating art, home improvement projects, tennis and watching my kids play sports!
