Dr. Kowalczyk's Care Philosophy

I graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2001 and then proceeded to Georgetown for medical school and residency, where I built a great foundation for becoming a well-rounded surgeon and worked with some of the best urologists in the area at both Georgetown University Hospital and Washington Hospital Center. I felt I wanted to perfect my surgical technique even more to provide the best possible surgical outcomes, so I enrolled in additional training at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital under the direct tutelage of well-known urologic oncologist, Dr. Jim C. Hu. Specifically, I am fellowship trained in minimally invasive urologic oncology, which means I use laparoscopic and/or robotic surgery to manage genitourinary tumors whenever possible. I spent all year at Harvard with Dr. Hu refining and perfecting techniques for robotic surgery for prostate and kidney cancer. Throughout my training, I have now performed over 500 robotic surgeries.

My experience with Dr. Kowalczyk was absolutely OUTSTANDING...! He was compassionate, he took the time to listen, and he had a very warm and friendly demeanor. I would highly recommend him to all family and friends. He reviewed my past medical history with me, and he explained my condition in detail, in layman terms, so that I could fully understand the state of my health condition. Also, his professionalism, as well as his attention to detail, helped to definitely put my mind at ease.
