Board Certifications


I am a urologic surgeon with expertise in the treatment of urologic tumors — which include bladder, urethral, and kidney cancers. I am currently heading clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering to evaluate new therapies for the treatment of high-risk superficial bladder cancer in patients who are resistant to bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy, the standard treatment. I also have expertise in nerve-sparing radical cystectomy followed by bladder reconstruction.

I have written a number of articles, and I am on the editorial boards of and a reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals.


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
