Assistant Professor of Urology, The Ohio State University
Clinical Background and Robotic Expertise
Years in Practice: 2
Board Certified: Yes
Residency: New York Presbyterian Medical Center, Columbia University (New York City)
Robotics Training: As an integral part of residency training and during fellowship in urologic oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York City)
Clinical Interests: Robotic surgery for prostate, bladder, kidney, adrenal and retroperitoneal cancers
Combining unique skills in laparoscopic and robotic surgery to his extensive training in urologic oncology, Dr. Shabsigh implements a global approach in the treatment of urologic cancers, such as prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular and penile cancers. His focus is on curing the cancer and minimizing the postoperative side effects. During his residency training in the early 2000s, he participated in the first few robotic prostatectomies done in New York City at New York Presbyterian Medical Center, and his experience continued during his fellowship. Since then, robotic surgery for different urologic malignancies has become an integral part of his practice. His current research focuses on the outcome of robotic vs. laparoscopic vs. open techniques.
Before joining Ohio State, Dr. Shabsigh was a Fellow in urologic oncology in the Department of Urology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. He has a strong research interest focusing on surgical outcomes, quality of life and the biology of urologic malignancies. He was also a Research Fellow at the Molecular Urology Research Laboratory of Columbia University in New York City.
Dr. Shabsigh is a member of several prestigious national and international societies, such as the American Urologic Association, the Society of Urologic Oncology and the American College of Surgeons. He has presented at national and international meetings and has won awards from local and national urologic societies for his research in urologic cancer treatment and outcomes.
