Domenico Savatta, MD FACS selected as “Top Cancer Doctor”

Domenico Savatta, M.D., graduated Tau Beta Pi, and summa cum Laude from The Cooper Union with a B.S. in engineering. He then attended SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine and was an AOA graduate. Thereafter, he completed a residency in urology at the prestigious Indiana University Medical Center, world renowned for the treatment of testicular cancer and other urologic malignancies. Dr. Savatta has combined his undergraduate training in engineering with his surgical training in open and laparoscopic surgery to provide state-of-the-art treatments for urologic disorders. Dr. Savatta has been pioneering robotic surgery since 2004 when he performed the first robotic prostatectomy in Essex county. He has contributed to the field of urologic robotic surgery by publishing papers with national leaders describing how to perform robotic inguinal hernia surgery during robotic prostatectomy and robotic partial nephrectomy for kidney cancer. He performed the first robotic surgeries in New Jersey for bladder and kidney cancer in 2005 and has performed over 1300 robotic surgeries. He has developed techniques for robotic prostatectomy that allows for an earlier return of urinary control and less postoperative pain. Dr. Savatta’s goal is to provide the most compassionate and informative care while preserving and maximizing patients quality of life.

Robotic Partial Nephrectomy Study

Journal of Robotic Surgery, Volume 2, Number 3 / September, 2008

Conclusions
We report a large, multi-institutional series of RPN for renal tumors, confirming safety and feasibility reported in previous small, single-institution studies. Although we report the initial experience in RPN at each center, immediate oncologic results and perioperative outcomes approached those of more mature laparoscopic series. Robotic assistance may facilitate the technical challenges of precise tumor resection and renal reconstruction within acceptable warm ischemia times. Long-term outcomes are needed to establish the role of RPN in nephron-sparing surgery.

This was a large multi-institutional study that I was part of. This was the largest robotic partial nephrectomy study reported.
