Dr. Pattaras' Care Philosophy
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.
