DR FIGENSHAU DID MY ROBOTIC PROSTATE REMOVAL IN 2016. ONE OF THE BEST SURGEONS I HAVE EVER RAN ACROSS. VERY PATIENT IN ANSWERING QUESTIONS AND IN DETAIL THAT I COULD UNDERSTAND. I HAVE RECOMMENDED DR FIGENSHAU TO SEVERAL OF MY FRENDS IN MY SMALL TOWN IN SOUTHER ILLINOIS. OF THOSE WHO HAVE CHOSEN HIM, EVERONE THINKS THAT HE IS JUST GREAT. AND BY THE WAY, MY PSA HAS BEEN A CONSTANT ZERO EACH TIME. I AM NOW 71 YEARS OLD AND DOING GREAT.

Dr. Figenshau performed two surgeries for me, both due to my testicular cancer diagnosis. He was knowledgeable, skilled, and profoundly reassuring. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing urological surgery.
