I am a believer of new modalities, such as robotic technology and other minimally invasive techniques, that provide the most recent and efficient treatment options for my patients. Rapid recovery is one of my main concerns – and I feel that personalized patient care is fundamental in the management and convalescence of my patients.
Since I have always believed that a well-informed patient is the best patient, I educate my patients on the benefits, risks and potential consequences of their procedure. I also collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of experts to provide the best possible care.
Training under the supervision of various pioneers in the field of minimally invasive urology has widened my scope of practice, especially in dealing with difficult cases. I peruse clinical research and stay up to date with innovative techniques that are proven to improve patient outcomes.
Conditions I Treat
- Prostate cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Ureteral cancer
- Kidney cancer
Dr Ghazi received his MD degree from Cairo University in Egypt in 2000, where he also completed his surgery training and Urology residency 2001-2005. After serving as Faculty for 2 years at the University Hospitals, he started a series of worldwide fellowships in state of the art minimal invasive Urological surgery. He completed a laparoscopic fellowship in Paris, France in 2008 under the supervision of Professor Claude Abbou MD (one of the modern founders and prominent laparoscopic surgeons, who revolutionized the laparoscopic technique for extraperitoneal laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for treatment of prostate cancer). He then completed a second laparoscopic fellowship in Austria in 2009 under the supervision of Professor Gunter Janetschek MD who specialized in the laparoscopic approach for selective removal of kidney tumors, leaving the remaining kidney intact and functioning. He also introduced the laparoscopic approach for retroperitoneal lymph node dissection in the treatment of testicular cancer evading a large midline incision. During his stay in Europe he received the European Board of Urology. He completed his training at the University of Rochester, New York with a 2 year fellowship in the robotic treatment of various urologic cancers. He joined the staff at the Urology department, University of Rochester in 2012. Dr. Ghazi specializes in the diagnosis and minimal invasive treatment of cancers of the prostate, bladder, kidney, testicle, and other genitourinary organs as well as minimal invasive treatment of various stones of the urinary tract.
