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.
