Treatment Philosophy

A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event, but patients at Fox Chase are not alone when faced with difficult treatment decisions. As a Urologic Oncologist, I help patients navigate these decisions and ensure that they receive the best care possible. 

While I specialize in the surgical management of various cancers—including kidney, bladder, prostate, penile, urethral, ureteral, and testicular—I make sure my patients understand all of their treatment options, including nonsurgical options such as active surveillance. When surgical treatment is necessary, however, I specialize in laparoscopic, robotic, and open surgical approaches, and have extensive training in organ preserving and reconstructive techniques that preserve quality of life.

Because each person is unique, I work with my patients to create an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs. Fox Chase Cancer Center provides a distinct culture of excellence in cancer care to help me provide the level of care each patient deserves.
