“I haven’t purposely kept it a secret, but there is a major part of the story of my life that very few people know about. Since practically every interviewer has questioned me only on my work as a doctor and surgeon, and my commentaries on health and medicine on television and radio cover only medical and health related issues, this story of my past personal life has not really surfaced”
My specialty is in the use of robotic surgery for surgical treatments of prostate cancer. Patients are now enjoying being cancer free with an excellent quality of life being continent and sexually active.
While most doctors only treat the prostate, the teaching in our practice is to treat the patient as a whole and and take them through the hardship of cancer to safe future and cancer free.
I am proud of having a team that work with me including staff before the surgery, special team in the operating room and expert nurses after the surgery. Having such caring staff has allowed me to be able to perform close to 500 davinci prostatectomy a year. Have completed over 7000 of such surgeries with minimum complications. The entire operating room team, staff, pathologist, nurses work together with the aim of winning for you and your family.
As the captain of this group I am proud to deliver the best care possible. Go to prostatecancer911.com for any questions.
