Dr. Huang specializes in the surgical treatment of all urologic cancers. A board-certified, fellowship-trained urologic oncologist, he has considerable experience in open, robotic and laparoscopic surgical techniques, including the use of robot-assisted surgery to treat bladder cancer, kidney cancer, ureteral cancer and prostate cancer. His robotic surgical expertise includes the complete removal of the bladder with urinary reconstruction, removal of complex kidney tumors, and nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy. He is among the most experienced surgeons in the New York area at performing robotic radical cystectomies (removal of the bladder and surrounding organs).


Dr. Huang’s research has included investigations of robotic partial nephrectomy outcomes and kidney function following robotic surgery. Other research areas include new chemotherapeutic approaches to bladder cancer, innovative techniques for the treatment of prostate cancer such as high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), and long-term effects of surgery in kidney cancer survivors. He has published in several high-impact journals including the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Lancet Oncology, and the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Huang has lectured and received awards for his research at both national and international meetings, particularly for his work on the outcomes of patients undergoing kidney cancer surgery. He also serves as a reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals in the field of urology and oncology and is a member of the American Urologic Association, the Society of Urologic Oncology, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American College of Surgeons.
