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.
