I have an interest in all aspects of general urology as well as a particular interest in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of urologic malignancies including tumors of the kidney, bladder, prostate, testis and male genitalia. I have a particular interest in the surgical management of advanced testicular cancer. At the present time, I get the majority of referrals for post chemotherapy retroperitoneal dissections for patients with metastatic testicular cancer within San Antonio and the South Texas Region.
