Treatment Philosophy

I am a surgical specialist who treats tumors of the adrenal, kidney, prostate, bladder, testis, and other genitourinary organs. Working closely with other members of the Fox Chase multidisciplinary team, I make certain that my patients are aware of all the choices that today's cutting edge oncological care has to offer, regardless of whether these treatments take place inside or outside the operating room.

When surgery is necessary, I strive to offer the best operation that fits an individual's particular condition and circumstance. Indeed, my unique fellowship training in both traditional open surgery and minimally-invasive approaches such as laparoscopy and robotics, allows me to offer a wide range of options that optimize oncological outcomes and minimize recovery time. For example, I am skilled at both open and robot-assisted nerve-sparing prostatectomy and open, laparoscopic, and robotic kidney surgery. Particularly, I have advanced expertise in kidney preservation. For patients with bladder cancer, I am able to offer both bladder-sparing approaches and the latest techniques in continent urinary reconstruction. Furthermore, I have a particular interest and expertise in treatment of various tumors and conditions that stem from the adrenal gland.

As a clinician at an academic institution such as Fox Chase, I actively participate in medical research. In particular, my academic interests focus on kidney, prostate, bladder, and adrenal disease. Being an active contributor to the medical literature, I hope to offer my patients the most up-to-date information on medical progress and, if necessary, help them enroll into appropriate clinical trials — many of which are only available through Fox Chase.

Modern oncology offers patients tremendous hope; however, today's treatment options can be overwhelming, especially to those who are trying to cope with the shock of a recent cancer diagnosis. I greatly appreciate the toll that such a diagnosis can take not only on the patient, but also on his or her family. I hope to bring to every one of my patients a sense of understanding and compassion that can help us effectively work together to achieve the best outcome that modern medicine has to offer.

Lab Overview

In collaboration with Vladimir Kolenko, MD, PhD, and Robert Uzzo, MD, our research efforts span the basic and the clinical sciences. Our work focuses on understanding the process of renal and prostatic carcinogenesis and assessing novel therapeutic regimens for the treatment of urological cancers.

As part of our work, we explore the role of zinc in development and progression of prostate malignancy.  Zinc concentrations diminish early in the course of prostate carcinogenesis—prior to histopathological changes—and continue to decline during progression toward castration-resistant growth. The objective of research in our laboratory is to test and advance an emerging paradigm that intracellular zinc deficiency augments malignant potential of prostate cancer cells and, therefore, promotes prostate tumorigenesis. We are also investigating the role of zinc chelators as potential therapeutic agents for the treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer. Work performed by Dr. Kolenko indicates that treatment of prostate cancer cells with the zinc chelating agent TPEN induces selective down-regulation of X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP) and sensitizes cancer cells to cytotoxic agents. Importantly, the observed effect is not limited to prostate cancer, as TPEN reduces expression of XIAP in malignant cell lines of various origins, e.g. colon, ovarian, leukemia, breast and cervical.

The second major theme of our research is to determine the mechanism of tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKIs)-resistance in genitourinary tumors. Our studies reveal that TKI-resistance coincides with the loss of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) protein expression in prostate and renal malignant cells. On the contrary, expression of PTEN sensitizes prostate and renal tumors to multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor sunitinib both in vitro and in vivo. In addition, our studies indicate that an increase in expression of IL-6 and IL-8 correlates with sunitinib and pazopanib resistance in prostate and renal tumor cells. Use of a reliable biomarker for TKI response, harbors promise both in the clinical and research settings.

In the clinical arena, we focus our efforts on addressing quantification of competing risks of death for patients with urologic malignancies, investigating the biology and natural history of small renal masses, improving reporting and risk-stratification of surgical outcomes for patients with kidney cancer, and addressing clinical approaches to patients with adrenal cancers and incidental adrenal masses.

  • Leukemia

I talk to other cancer survivors, and I think a lot of people feel like they’re alone when they’re going through this. I tell them, “You’re not alone, there are a lot of us in this battle together.” I should know—I’ve been through it six times.

I thank God for my wife, Anna. We’ve been married 31 years, and she’s my rock. She’s also a respiratory therapist, so she knows a lot more about this medical stuff than I do. A lot of the decisions I’ve made might not have made had it not been for her.

William Bojanowski

  • Neuroendocrine Tumors

In October of 2020, at 59 years old, I started having some back pain. I worked in construction, so lower back pain was normal, but this time the pain was in my upper back. I went to my primary doctor and she noticed that my kidney was not functioning fully. She thought it might be due to my diabetes medication.

After two months of a lowered dosage of medication, my pain only got worse. I was sent to the local urologist, and when he saw something on my X-rays he immediately referred me to Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Edward Enoch

  • Prostate Cancer

My name is Edward Enoch, and I am from Lansdale, Pennsylvania. I was sixty years old and two years retired when my life took a startling turn.

Like millions of other retirees, my wife Janice and I were updating our health insurance. We met with an agent who asked that I schedule a routine checkup. I thought nothing of it at the time—after all, I had no complaints about my health. However, once I received the results of my blood test, the confidence I had regarding my health started to waver.

    I was very happy with my decision to see Dr. Kudakov for a second opinion, his opinions and rationale for the type of treatment I should receive were well thought out and spot on. He was very accommodating to me and my wife and daughter, and listened to everyone's concerns and questions.

    When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, I told my urologist in [...] ([...]) that I wanted the best cancer care that I could get and that meant that IO wanted to go to Fox Chase. I asked [...] to recommend the best doctor at Fox Chase. He recommended Dr. Kutikov. Needless to say, in my estimation, Dr. Kutikov is absolutely the best.

    I always get excellent care from Dr. Kutikov and his staff. They are the best in their field. I travel over an hour, but not go anywhere else. When I got ready to leave, his nurse gave me a hug. That is how caring they are.
