      Collapse Overview
      Dr. A. Karim Kader is one of the most experienced surgeons in the United States performing robot-assisted radical cystectomy and urinary diversion for patients with bladder cancer. He received his undergraduate, doctorate of philosophy, and medical degrees from the University of British Columbia and completed his urology residency at the University of Toronto. He completed a urologic oncology fellowship at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Kader holds several patents for genetic discoveries that hold significant promise for early detection and prevention of prostate cancer. He is the principal investigator for numerous clinical research projects and has published extensively. His research interests include genetic markers of risk and outcome in urologic cancer.
