In this enlightening episode of our podcast, we delve into the critical topic of prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment with the esteemed Dr. Ash Tewari. As a professor and chair of the Milton Carroll Petrie Department of Urology at the Eichin School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, Dr. Tewari brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our discussion.
Our host, Dr. Geo, engages Dr. Tewari in a comprehensive conversation covering essential questions such as how to identify if one has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, the process of choosing the best surgeon for prostate removal, and the meaning of surgical margins in the context of prostatectomy.
Dr. Tewari, a pioneer in robotic surgery and a key figure in the development of prostatectomy, shares insights from his impressive career, including performing over 9,000 robotic prostatectomies. His expertise is further highlighted by receiving special NIH and Department of Defense grants.

Beyond his professional achievements, Dr. Tewari's interests, such as outdoor activities, photography, and his engagement on social media, are also discussed.
The episode highlights the discussion on the innovative 'hood technique' in prostatectomy developed by Dr. Tewari, which has shown promising results in improving continence and nerve preservation post-surgery.
