Andre Berger, MD is faculty at the USC Institute of Urology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
Dr. Berger is fellowship trained in advanced robotic and laparoscopic urological surgery.
His particular area of expertise is robotic and laparoscopic surgery for urologic oncology, including prostate cancer, kidney cancer and bladder cancer. Dr. Berger performs robotic athermal nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer, delivering outstanding potency and continence outcomes. He also brings sophisticated expertise in robotic and laparoscopic surgery for kidney tumors, specifically when performing nephron-sparing (kidney-saving) surgery with minimal or no warm ischemia. Also, he performs robotic radical cystectomy, extended pelvic lymph node dissection and completely intra-corporeal urinary diversions. In addition, he is proficient in robotic surgery for benign conditions of the adrenal gland, kidney, ureter-pelvic junction obstruction, urinary bladder and benign prostate hypertrophy. Dr. Berger performs scar-less "belly-button" single-port surgery for various urological conditions.
His philosophy of care is to treat every single patient like a family member. His aim is to offer the best treatments combining innovation, technology and compassion in a personalized way.
Dr. Berger has authored over 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers and many book chapters.
He has been invited to many hospitals to lecture and perform live robotic surgery demonstrations.
Dr. Berger is a pioneer in robotic surgery in his native country, Brazil. He has been actively involved in working with his countrymen to advance the field of robotics, helping to establish robotic programs.
