Dr Karnes performed life saving surgery on me in June of 2019. My family and I will be forever grateful. My latest C-11 Pet Scan just came back clear. That is with no hormone therapy! Thank you to Dr Karnes and his very capable team.

I had a radical retropubic prostatectomy on November 17, 2016. Everything went well, no complication after the surgery and I recovered in the predicted time frame. Dr Jeffrey Kames was very professional and spent sufficient time with me before and after the surgery.
