Dr. Cefalu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cefalu "Dr. Cefalu was born and raised in Shreveport, LA. He attended Byrd high school and completed his undergraduate education, with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, in 2004 from Centenary College of Louisiana. He then attended LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport, obtaining his medical doctorate in 2010. Dr. Cefalu completed his surgical internship and residency in Urology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas Texas. Dr. Cefalu is trained in all aspects of general adult and pediatric Urology, but during his time in Dallas, he was fortunate to train directly under many leading experts in a variety of Urologic subspecialty fields. Because of this, his training and interest include minimally invasive surgery for both benign and malignant conditions, including the use of the DaVinci Robot. He will approach most major oncologic surgery with the robot including prostate, bladder, and kidney cancer. He offers new technology for the treatment of BPH including the green light laser prostatectomy and the Urolift. He has done research and published in the field of reconstructive urology/prosthetics and has a special interest in the surgical reconstruction of both the urethra and the upper urinary tract. Dr. Cefalu is married to Audrey Cefalu, who is also from Shreveport. They have two children, Elizabeth and Benjamin. His hobbies include golf, cooking, gardening, and spending time outdoors. "
