Dr. Ketan K. Badani is Professor of Urology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Vice Chairman of Urology and Robotic Operations at Mount Sinai Health System, Director of Robotic Surgery at Mount Sinai West, and the Director of the Comprehensive Kidney Cancer Program At Mount Sinai Health System.
Dr. Badani is recognized as a world leader in the research and treatment of urologic oncology. Specifically, he has focused his work on prostate and kidney cancer. Dr. Badani has led teams that first developed and published techniques for minimally invasive robotic kidney cancer surgery. His technique of robotic partial nephrectomy, The “F.A.S.T.” procedure has been published and taught around the world to treat patients with renal tumors. Dr. Badani leads a team seeking to improve treatment of these cancers by finding less invasive and effective therapy, while maintaining quality of life factors after surgery.
Dr. Badani has performed nearly 4,000 robotic procedures in his career, placing him in the top 1% of urologists worldwide. He is one the preeminent practitioners in the world for robotic partial nephrectomy for complex kidney tumors, and robotic prostatectomy for localized prostate cancer; he has the largest combined experience in robotic kidney and prostate cancer in the New York area. Dr. Badani’s clinical expertise spans both surgical and non-surgical approaches to treatment of urologic cancers. He has just completed one of the largest decision impact studies evaluating genomic biomarkers for active surveillance in men with low risk prostate cancer.
