About Me

I am a urologist who has focused my entire professional career on bladder cancer, which is very prevalent but often suffers from a lack of awareness and research to support our understanding of it. Research that advances new treatments and therapies for bladder cancer is very important to me.

I’ve served as principal investigator, co-principal investigator, site principal investigator or co-investigator for more than 50 clinical research trials. As a member of the Translational Therapeutics Program at the OSUCCC – James, my latest study focuses on strategies to improve outcomes and quality of life for patients who’ve suffered impairments following radical bladder cancer surgery.

At The Ohio State University, I’m a tenured professor of urology and serve as chair of the Department of Urology for Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center. Additionally, I serve in several national roles: as an oral board examiner of the American Board of Urology, as a member of the Education Council of the American Urological Association (AUA) and as a long-time postgraduate course director for the AUA. I was also named to the Castle Connolly list of “America's Top Doctors” from 2008 to 2019.

I feel extremely fortunate and proud to be affiliated with the OSUCCC – James. In addition to our research, we’re committed to providing truly individualized care that focuses on total wellness. Our facilities are phenomenal and allow me to provide state-of-the-art care.
