Clinical Interests

My major exper­tise is in recon­struc­tive urol­o­gy. That entails the sur­gi­cal recon­struc­tion of the penis, ure­thra, blad­der, ureters and kid­ney. I am also an expert in man­age­ment of post prostate can­cer surgery com­pli­ca­tions — like ED and uri­nary incon­ti­nence. In my 20 years of prac­tice, I have per­formed well over 1500 major uro­log­ic recon­struc­tive surg­eries. I am also a very expe­ri­enced pros­thet­ic sur­geon with penile implants and arti­fi­cial uri­nary sphincters.

"Waited 15 minutes in exam room before doctor appeared, and he was on the phone with someone else for 5 more minutes. During the exam he was interrupted by knocks on the door once or twice. He also seemed to rush through my exam. The doctor seems very capable, but if he is as overbooked as he appears, that reduces my confidence in my examination."
