For more than a decade, Ash Tewari, MBBS, MCh, FRCS (Hon.), Professor and System Chair, Milton and Carroll Petrie Department of Urology, and Surgeon-in-Chief, The Tisch Cancer Hospital at The Mount Sinai Hospital, has been a pioneer in robot-assisted radical prostatectomies (RARP) and related anatomical studies. Dr. Tewari has performed over 7,500 robotic prostatectomies, making him one of the most skilled and experienced robotic surgeons in the world. Through this work, he has introduced and refined several innovative nerve-sparing techniques and anatomical models that have struck a unique balance between optimal oncological outcomes and maintenance of continence and sexual function among patients.
Dr. Tewari began his two-year term as President of the Society for Urologic Robotic Surgeons (SURS) on August 31st, 2020 and is performing a live surgery at the Inaugural World Congress of Robotic Surgeons being held Dec 8-10 at Mount Sinai Hospital New York. The live surgery, Nerve Sparing Robotic Radical Prostatectomy – in 3D, will be happening on Dec 9th at 8:45am.
