About

About

I am board-certified in urology/urologic surgery and the Chief of Urology at Huntington Hospital. I specialize in minimally-invasive and laparoscopic surgery, robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery, prostate laser surgery, and image-guided procedures including prostate and kidney cryosurgery. Further, I have extensive experience in endourology and stone surgery, uro-oncology, cosmetics and reconstruction, trauma, pediatric urology, and transplantation.

Prior to joining North Shore Medical Group/Mount Sinai School of Medicine, I completed my internship (general surgery/trauma) and residency training in urology at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, as well as a research fellowship in urologic oncology at New York's renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

I serve as the only center of excellence for holmium-laser based prostate surgery (HOLAP/HOLEP: holmium laser ablation/enucleation of the prostate) in the tri-state area. I serve as a proctor and preceptor for HOLAP/HOLEP, as well as for prostate and kidney cryosurgery.

I have served as a board member for the COLD registry, a panel of thought-leaders in the field of cryosurgery. Additionally, I am an active member of both the medical advisory board and peer review committee for Allied Metropolitan Medical, LLC. I am a member of the SCIP and cancer committees at Huntington Hospital and hold active staff positions at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center.

To date, I have published 36 peer-reviewed articles, 84 abstracts and presented 39 times at national and sectional meetings of the American Urological Association, Society of Urologic Oncology, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology. I am currently a co-lead investigator for a cryosurgery clinical trial and continue to publish research from my clinical practice. I am a member of the national and New York sections of the American Urological Association, UROPAC, Society of Endourology, New York State Urological Society, Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA), and the American Association of Clinical Urologists.
