This content was provided by Dr. Touijer "I am a surgeon who specializes in the treatment of genitourinary cancers (prostate, kidney, bladder, testis, and adrenals). My primary interest is the study of innovative minimally invasive surgical techniques -- such as laparoscopy, robotic-assisted laparoscopy, and image-guided therapies -- to treat prostate, kidney, bladder, testicular, and adrenal cancers. I am an expert in the use of advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques to treat urologic cancers. The types of surgery I perform include: Nerve Sparing Laparoscopic or Robotic Radical Prostatectomy (removal of the prostate) for prostate cancer Laparoscopic Radical Cystectomy (removal of the bladder) and Urinary Diversion for invasive bladder cancer Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy (removal of the tumor only and preserving the rest of the kidney) for kidney cancers. I am fortunate to have world-class colleagues from medical oncology, radiology, and radiation oncology with whom I work closely in a multidisciplinary fashion to offer the best treatment for our patients. My clinical research focuses on the comparison of minimally invasive surgery to conventional open surgery with regards to cancer control and impact on the quality of life of our patients. An additional focus of my research is the development of continuous quality improvement and assessing its impact on surgical outcome. After a completing a fellowship in urologic oncology and advanced laparoscopic oncology at MSKCC, I joined the attending staff of MSKCC's Urology Service in 2004. I am board certified by the American Board of Urology, a member of the Society of Urologic Oncology, the American Urological Association, the European Association of Urology, and other national and international societies; additionally I serve as a reviewer for a number of peer-reviewed urology and cancer journals."
