My expertise is in the treatment of genitourinary tumors — particularly bladder and testicular cancers. As a member of Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Genitourinary Oncology faculty since 1986, I have diagnosed and treated thousands of people with these cancers.
For each patient, I collaborate closely with a team of surgeons, radiation oncologists, nurses, and social workers to provide the most sophisticated, up-to-date, and personalized care.
In addition to treating patients, I have researched new drugs (and combinations of drugs) for people who have developed advanced bladder cancer and other genitourinary malignancies. I also oversee a program that gathers clinical and genetic information from patients with bladder cancer that could guide us to more-targeted anticancer drugs. The findings could also help us identify genetic influences on how people respond to treatment, and clarify who is at high risk of developing this cancer in the first place.
