Our team welcomes Andres F. Correa, MD to the Department of Surgical Oncology as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Urology and Urologic Oncology. He is an assistant professor in the academic clinician track. Correa, who was a Society of Urologic Oncology Fellow at Fox Chase, has returned to the center after serving as attending surgeon and assistant professor in the division of urology in the department of surgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper University Hospital. He received his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, where he graduated magna cum laude. Correa was a general surgery intern at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center before becoming a urology resident and eventually the urology chief resident.
Correa is skilled in all surgical modalities, including robotics, laparoscopy, and traditional open surgery, and has in-depth expertise in prostate, kidney, bladder, testicular, and other genitourinary cancers. “Fox Chase Urologic Oncology is extremely fortunate to recruit talent of such high caliber. Dr. Correa is a second-to-none academic clinician who unites clinical wisdom, superb surgical skill, and an unparalleled knowledge base with superlative communication skills, sincere compassion, and an utmost sense of duty,” said Alexander Kutikov, MD, chief of the Division of Urology and Urologic Oncology, and Robert G. Uzzo, MD, MBA, FACS, Chairman and Professor of the Department of Surgery.
“As an academic surgeon, my goal is to provide my patients with the most updated treatment options by being actively involved in clinical trials and translational research,” said Dr. Correa. He is a member of the American Medical Association, National Hispanic Medical Association, American Urological Association, and the Society of Urologic Oncology. Correa has published over 20 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals—including seminal work on prediction of kidney cancer recurrence in the prestigious Journal of Clinical Oncology. He has also presented at numerous academic meetings and contributed to book chapters in the field of urologic oncology. Correa is fluent in Spanish and has received the honor of being nominated as a top doctor in the Philadelphia area by Al Día News Media.
