<p>Amit Gupta, MD, MPH, is an expert and thought leader in robotic surgery and urologic oncology. He is among a handful of surgeons who perform complex robotic surgeries such as robotic inferior vena cava (IVC) tumor thrombectomy and IVC repair, robotic cystectomy with intracorporal urinary diversions (including neobladder) and robotic supine retroperitoneal lymph node dissection. Gupta has extensive training and experience with open, robotic and laparoscopic surgeries. He did his urology residency at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas. He completed his urologic oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York. Gupta was then recruited to the University of Iowa, where he established an Advanced Robotics Surgery Program. He developed a reputation for performing novel and extremely complex surgeries for kidney, prostate, bladder and testis cancers. He was sought by patients from all over Iowa and from surrounding states. Gupta was instrumental in establishing the Urologic Oncology Fellowship at the University of Iowa. He was subsequently promoted to clinical associate professor of Urology. Gupta was then recruited to the Cedars-Sinai Urology Academic Practice. Gupta treats patients with urological cancers such as those of the bladder, prostate, kidney and testis. He is the Chairman of the Robotic Surgery Steering Committee at Cedars-Sinai. He has established the Single Port (Sp) Robotic Surgery Program at Cedars. Single Port surgery leads to less pain, faster recovery and patients are able to go home faster.</p><p><span>His research interests include novel surgical techniques, surgical technology, bone health in cancer patients and clinical trials of novel therapeutic options. </span>He has published his research in high impact journals such as the Journal of Clinical Oncology, European Urology, Journal of Urology, Urology, British Journal of Urology, Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, and Clinical Cancer Research.</p>
