Dr Singer is a urologic surgeon with expertise in the management of genitourinary malignancies and a special interest in using robotic and minimally invasive surgery to treat cancers of the kidney, prostate, bladder and adrenal glands. His goal is to educate and empower my patients so that they can choose the best treatment option available, whether it is surgery, active surveillance, radiation, systemic therapy, or a clinical trial.
