Jonathan Coleman, who specializes in treating prostate and kidney cancers, talks about how minimally invasive surgical techniques reduce recovery time and pain, as well as improve quality of life for patients.


I am a urologic surgeon with expertise in minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of kidney, adrenal, and prostate cancers. Using laparoscopic, robotic, and image-guided therapies, the goal of our team is to provide appropriate curative therapeutic interventions through the organ-sparing approaches of less-invasive surgery. We are interested in the application and careful study of techniques such as robotic (da Vinci) prostatectomy, laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, partial adrenalectomy, cryo- and radiofrequency ablation, and MRI-guided prostate interventions using state-of-the-art instrumentation and imaging technology. We are also coupling these approaches with basic science research investigations of human cancers to discover optimal therapeutic strategies that can be tailored to each of our patients.

I have a special interest in patients with hereditary urologic cancer syndromes, including von Hipple-Lindau, Birt-Hogg-Dube, hereditary papillary kidney cancer, and hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer.
