I currently serve as Professor/Clinical in the Department of Urology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. In addition to my clinical duties, I currently serve as the Medical Director for the Urology clinic at the Medical Arts and Research Center (MARC) UT Health San Antonio. I also serve as the Department of Urology Promotion and Tenure Committee Chairman. I have also been actively involved in various research endeavors on the early detection of prostate cancer. 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. I cover clinical duties at various institutions to include University Hospital, Robert B. Green Hospital, Christus Santa Rosa Northwest Hospital and the Audie L. Murphy Memorial Veterans Hospital.
