David Chen, MD
Fox Chase Cancer Center
I am a urologic oncologist specializing in surgical treatment of cancers of the genitourinary tract. I have extensive experience with laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgical techniques and apply these approaches routinely to reduce the pain, recovery time, and complications associated with traditional open surgery.
I am skilled in nerve-sparing and organ-reconstructive surgery essential for preserving normal functions when treating prostate, testis, bladder and kidney cancer. I am sensitive to the particular issues regarding the diagnosis of genitourinary cancer and its subsequent treatment, including its physical and emotional effects on the patient and their family and support system.
I recognize each person is unique and requires a treatment individually tailored to them to achieve successful cancer treatment, limited treatment-related side effects and maintained quality of life.
