  • I am a Urologist in Sarasota, FL. I specialize in endourology and robotic assisted surgery to perform minimally invasive surgery for kidney stones, kidney obstruction, and kidney tumors. My skills also encompass laser and other minimally invasive treatments for prostate enlargement, with a particular focus on prostate enucleation. I also have a strong interest in the medical management and prevention of kidney stones.
