Dr. Misop Han is an associate professor of urology and oncology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Dr. Han is a board-certified urologist whose main clinical focus is in urological oncology with a special emphasis on prostate and kidney cancers. He specializes in nerve-sparing radical retropubic prostatectomy, robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy and laparoscopic nephrectomy.

Dr. Han received his undergraduate and medical degrees at Johns Hopkins. After an internship in surgery and residencies in surgery and urology, also at Johns Hopkins, he worked as an assistant professor of urology at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University and as a urologist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. While there, he headed Northwestern University''s clinical database for prostate cancer research. In 2006, he joined the Johns Hopkins faculty.

His research interests include the outcome of radical prostatectomy and prediction modeling (what happens to men following surgery for prostate cancer). He has published extensively in these subjects. He is actively involved in several clinical research projects with the database of more than 14,000 men who received surgery for prostate cancer at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

He has published extensively, and has received international and national recognition for his research involving the outcomes of surgeries for patients with prostate cancer. He is a member of the American Urological Association and the American Medical Association, and is certified by the American Board of Urologists. more
