Pravin Rao, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Urology, and the Director of Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at the Johns Hopkins Brady Urological Institute. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Urology.

Dr. Rao obtained his medical degree here at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He then completed his general surgery internship, urology residency, and urology chief residency at the Cleveland Clinic, Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute in Cleveland, Ohio. He then went on to complete a fellowship in male infertility and andrology at the University of Illinois, Chicago to concentrate on medical and surgical care for infertile patients.

Dr. Rao's clinical practice focuses on Male Infertility and Andrology, Urologic Oncology, and General Urology. His main areas of expertise involve microsurgery using an operative microscope, which has been shown to yield superior outcomes in reproductive operations such as vasectomy reversal and testicular sperm extraction (TESE). He also has expertise in open and minimally invasive surgery (including endoscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic) for treatment of cancer, urinary tract stones, and benign diseases of the urinary tract.

His primary research interests include the characterization and management of the close relationships between male infertility and multiple medical conditions including testicular cancer, prostate cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and hypogonadism. Educating patients and influencing public health policy about these concerns is one of his top priorities.
