Very professional, the staff was very nice and helpful in my situation. Glad I made the appointment here because they wasted no time in getting me the information I needed.
You couldn't ask for a better staff. They are courteous, helpful and really know their stuff.
Thank you Doctor Ahlering for giving me the potential for a future. Your leadership and skill is reflected throughout your wonderful caring team who navigated me through this phase of my journey and treated me as if I was one of your own family.
My recovery exceeded every expectation that I had. After the surgery I was basically pain free and only took 1 Tylenol tablet! I was able to walk at length couple of days after the surgery. I did not even feel weak as one expects after the surgery.
Very professional staff, I like the rapport that they build with their patients. I took my son in for a procedure and the medical assistants took me under their wings and explained every step of the procedure in detail. I couldn't had chosen a better facility.
I have been treated by Dr. Louie and have nothing but good things to say about it. He is friendly, knowledgeable and will answer all the questions posed. In other words he has good bedside manner.
Dr. Jaime Landman has served as the chair of the Department of Urology since January 2011. He brings to UC Irvine Medical Center highly valued expertise from his former position as the director of minimally invasive urology in the Department of Urology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. Dr. Landman has extensive clinical expertise in laparoscopic and endoscopic kidney surgery for the management of urinary tract pathology including kidney stones, kidney cancer and ureteropelvic junction obstruction. He has pioneered technologies and techniques for minimally invasive management of kidney stones and kidney tumors and has developed novel techniques that are used globally for laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, ureteroscopy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Dr. Landman is respected as an international expert in the management of kidney cancer and is a pioneer and recognized expert on the application of minimally invasive techniques for ablation of kidney cancer. Dr. Landman has helped re-define the diagnosis of kidney cancer by developing novel diagnostic biopsy techniques which has provided patients more precise treatment of their disease. He directs the course on management of small renal tumors at the annual meeting of the American Urological Association as well as the small renal mass mini-fellowship at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Landman developed and tested novel ablation devices, which are currently used for minimally invasive ablation of renal tumors and malignancies. He has also invented novel technologies for the diagnosis of kidney cancer. His research focuses on stone disease, and he pioneered the combined antegrade and retrograde approach for treatment of complex kidney stones. Working in collaboration with basic scientist, he is actively working on tumor markers for urologic cancers and is trying to identify the relationship between kidney cancer and surrounding tissues.
We hope you have the opportunity to consult with Dr. Landman in the very near future.
For more than a hundred years, kidney surgery was performed the same way. The open technique meant a large incision and long recovery time for patients. Thanks to innovations pioneered at UC Irvine Health, kidney surgery has come a long way. UC Irvine Health urologist Dr. Jaime Landman describes the advances in surgery achieved in the past 25 years, and points to the promising therapies of the future.
