Dr. Cumarasamy is a fellowship-trained urologist who specializes in urologic oncology and robotic surgery. She also practices general urology with interests in benign diseases including female and male urinary incontinence, stone disease, and prostatic enlargement. She offers both medical and surgical treatment options to her patients.

Dr. Cumarasamy uses a minimally invasive approach to surgery with laparoscopic, robotic, or endoscopic technology when possible. Her goal is to provide patients with the best oncologic outcome while minimizing the incision, pain, and length of hospital stay and expediting recovery. She has trained under the nation’s pioneers of robotic surgery and utilizes the most advanced methods to give her patients the best possible treatment.

Dr. Cumarasamy also treats nephrolithiasis, overactive bladder, prostatic enlargement, incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and a wide range of other urologic problems. Her care philosophy is to offer patients all feasible treatment options with a personalized discussion of patient preferences in order to deliver a customized plan for each individual patient. She is thoughtful and thorough and is always interested in solving the most challenging problems in the ever-evolving field of urology.

Dr. Cumarasamy’s maiden name is White – and she is happy to respond to either Dr. White or Dr. Cumarasamy.
