Meet the Course Director
Dr. Ash Tewari, MBBS, MCh
Dr. Ash Tewari is an innovator in the fields of robotic prostate cancer surgery and prostate cancer treatment. He also designated various grades of nerve-sparing utilizing information from MRIs, allowing for incremental nerve-sparing particularly in cases that would have not previously qualified without this graded approach. He has described traction free and athermal nerve-sparing techniques and developed an innovative Detrusor wrap technique for early urinary continence.
Working with genitourinary pathologists and scientists from the University of Hamburg, he is currently evaluating the role of MRI-guided NeuroSAFE ® and sphinctersafe approaches in expanding opportunities for nerve-sparing. An active researcher and surgeon scientist, he is one of only a few robotic surgeons to be awarded a NIH R01 grant, for the investigation of real-time tissue identification during prostate cancer surgery.
Ketan Badani is the Vice Chairman of Urology and Director of the Robotic Surgery Program and Kidney Cancer Program at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City. He has been the director of several large multi-organ robotic surgery programs over the past 10 years, and has an experience of over 5,000 robotic surgeries to date.
