Dr. Smith's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "I am a surgeon with more than 18 years of experience in caring for patients with bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and prostate cancer. I specialize in both complex open surgery and minimally invasive surgical techniques. My practice is located at Memorial Hospital in Manhattan, as well as Memorial Sloan Kettering Basking Ridge and MSK Monmouth, in New Jersey. I was drawn to a career in medicine after losing my mother to kidney disease at a young age. During medical school, I wanted to become a kidney transplant surgeon, but when I observed the urologists during my residency, I realized that was my passion. Having a personal connection to my work motivates me to do everything I can for my patients. When a patient comes in for an appointment, I spend a lot of time reviewing their medical history and diagnosis with them. This is especially true for people who are seeking a second opinion. It's important that people feel well informed so that they can make the best possible decisions about their care. By the time the appointment is over, I hope my patients feel they have a thorough understanding of their disease, and that I'll always be available to help guide them through this complex time.
