Robert B. Nadler

Northwestern University

Dr. Nadler’s specific areas of interest include robotic prostatectomy and robotic partial nephrectomy, concentrating his clinical research efforts on outcomes of robotic prostatectomy patients specifically pertaining to erectile function and margin rates. He is also pioneering a technique of robotic partial nephrectomy, which avoids clamping the renal hilum to better preserve kidney function during robotic partial nephrectomy for renal cell cancer. He also continues to do work in the minimally invasive surgical management of complex kidney stones, renal pelvis tumors, and UPJ obstruction. He has written over 130 peer reviewed research papers on these topics and established one of the premier Laparoscopic Endourology fellowships in the world at Northwestern.
