Dr. Domenico Savatta is a leader in robotic surgery. He was the first da Vinci® urologic robotic instructor in the Northeast, and he has performed over 1,500 da Vinci® robotic prostatectomies and over 2,200 robotic operations.

During his residency, he trained under the direction of several leaders in the field of urologic oncology, endourology, reconstructive urology and prosthetic urology. He has participated in research involving minimally invasive ways to ablate renal tissue, including new laparoscopic techniques and high intensity focused ultrasound ablation of kidneys. He has also participated in research using gene therapy to treat prostate cancer.

Dr. Savatta has published papers with national leaders describing how to perform robotic inguinal hernia surgery during robotic prostatectomy and robotic partial nephrectomy for kidney cancer. Dr. Savatta’s goal is to provide the most compassionate and informative care while preserving and maximizing a patient’s quality of life.

Some of his accomplishments include:

  • Live da Vinci® robotic prostatectomy for the American Urological Association national meeting at the Intuitive Surgical exhibit
