The Milton and Carroll Petrie Department of Urology

At the Milton and Carroll Petrie Department of Urology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, our renowned team of physician-scientists is addressing a variety of challenges, including those presented by prostate and kidney cancers. This specialty report highlights:

  • A patient who presented with a rare 5 cm renal arterial aneurysm that was removed without complications using a novel approach
  • Two genomic studies that may help advance the field toward the goal of truly personalized prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment
  • A pregnant patient with a highly rare renal tumor that traveled to her aortic artery just weeks before her due date
  • Our team that was the first in the world to perform gold nanoparticle prostate cancer ablation, part of a clinical trial spearheaded by a faculty member uniquely board certified in both urology and interventional radiology
