I chose Dr. Hu to perform my prostatectomy after consulting with him and receiving recommendations giving him high praise. He is a leading DaVinci robotic surgeon who has performed well over a thousand robotic surgeries. Two weeks after surgery I (52 years old) am close to fully recovered. THank you Dr. Hu! Additionally, he is very attentive and responds quickly via email and also has a wonderful staff assisting him. If getting your prostate out, go see this doc.

Dr Hu showed genuine concern and interest during my initial consultation. He patiently answered all of my questions as well as those of my wife. After meeting with him, and having met with radiology oncologists, the decision to have surgery with Dr. Hu was easy to make. He performed a robotic prostatectomy in September of 2017. My recovery was remarkable! I have experienced absolutely no incontinence and other side effects are minimal. I attribute that to the skill of Dr. Hu.

April 10, 2008 I had my surgery for prostate cancer performed by Dr. Hue, at Brigham & Woman's hospital, in Boston. I am happy to say, 10 years later , I have a psa of less than 0.1 on my annual blood test. I had returned to work within a week, Thank you Dr. Hue!

Dr Hu performed a radical prostatectomy on my after a diagnosis of cancer. In consultations with me prior to surgery, he was warm and kind, and extremely informative. He showed great patience, answered all of my questions, met with my wife, and left me feeling that I had made a fully-informed decision. And then the real skills shine through - Dr. Hu's surgical abilities left me with truly minimal side effects. I was walking within hours after surgery and my overall recovery has been swift.

Dr. Hu performed a robotic radical prostectomy. Long and short term outcomes were better than I anticipated. Only missed 7 days of work. He is a highly competent surgeon, a great doctor and a truly nice person. I highly recommend Dr. Hu.
