Dr. Christian P. Pavlovich is Professor of Urology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is the Director of Urological Oncology at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and Fellowship Director of Urologic Oncology for the Brady Urological Institute.
Dr. Pavlovich treats cancer with an emphasis on minimizing morbidity and maximizing quality of life, while offering patients the latest treatment options and techniques.
His clinical focus is on prostate cancer, kidney cancer, and associated disorders, and on clinical trials regarding cancer detection and cancer immunotherapy. He is experienced in performing open, laparoscopic and other minimally invasive surgeries for the management of urologic tumors, including nerve-sparing and robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, laparoscopic and robotic nephrectomy, nephroureterectomy, and partial nephrectomy, and robotic radical cystectomy. In addition, he offers patients active surveillance and ablative options for their urinary malignancies including cryotherapy and prostate laser ablation.
He has been a National Institutes of Health- and Department of Defense-funded investigator whose research focuses on identifying early-detection methods for prostate and kidney cancer, including novel urinary biomarkers and imaging modalities for these diseases.
Dr. Pavlovich earned his medical degree at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine. He completed a urology residency at New York Hospital and a National Cancer Institute fellowship in urologic oncology before joining the Hopkins faculty in 2001.
