Gary D. Steinberg, MD

Gary Steinberg, MD, specializes in urologic oncology. He has been instrumental in developing innovative surgical procedures for patients with bladder, kidney, testicular, and prostate cancers. In addition, Dr. Steinberg performs continent urinary reconstructions in men and women who have their bladders removed due to cancer. He also performs robotic assisted laparoscopic radical cystectomies.

Dr. Steinberg's research includes developing newer treatments for urologic cancers, especially locally advanced bladder and kidney cancer. He is involved in a large number of clinical trials for patients with non-muscle invasive and invasive bladder cancer and kidney cancer as well as studies identifying newer molecular markers for the detection of bladder cancer. He is a national leader in continent urinary tract reconstruction and is the principal investigator for a regenerative medicine project using a patient’s own stem cells to create urinary tract reconstructions without using the intestine.
