Principal Investigator

GhaziAhmed Ghazi, M.D., M.Sc.
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.
