The James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute

Dr. Bivalacqua has an active clinical practice in Urologic Oncology. As a member of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, Dr Bivalacqua participates in multidisciplinary approaches to the treatment of a variety of genitourinary cancers. He has a special interest in cancers of the prostate and bladder with an emphasis on organ sparing therapies, minimally invasive techniques (nerve-sparing robotic assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy and robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical cystectomy) and orthotopic bladder substitution (neobladder). He also sees patients with advanced and rare urologic malignancies including sarcomas, penile and urethral cancer. Although he has a busy surgical practice, he maintains an active research portfolio in order to improve the care of cancer patients. A major focus of his research lab is to develop novel molecular-based targeted therapies for bladder cancer and preservation of erectile function in prostate cancer patients undergoing radical prostatectomy using novel agents.
