Dr. Pattaras' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pattaras "I started at Emory University School of Medicine in 2000 as Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery for the Department of Urology. I completed a 6 year residency and fellowships in Prostate cancer research as well as Laparoscopy/Endourology prior to moving to Atlanta. After 14 years at the University Hospital, I was chosen to start our Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital location in 2013 with a focus on building the robotics and prostate cancer programs. I have become the Chief of Emory services and Chief of Urology at Emory Saint Joseph's. I'n 2016, I was awarded the James C. Kennedy Chair of Prostate Surgery through Emory University and Winship Cancer Institute."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pattaras "I stress patient education and shared decision making. Our prostate cancer multidisciplinary clinic focuses on reviewing the patient's status and helping them understand surgery, radiation or active surveillance options.

For kidney cancer I stress treatment of the cancer with as much preservation of the remaining kidney.

I am an educator and as an Associate Professor of Urology within the Emory University School of Medicine I have trained dozens of surgeons and continue to teach residents and seasoned surgeons."
