Biography

Dr. Mohamed Allaf is an associate professor of urology and oncology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Director of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Urological Surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is also an associate professor of biomedical engineering.

As a urologic oncologist, his main clinical focus includes the treatment of kidney tumors and prostate cancer. While expert in both open and minimally invasive surgery, he specializes in robotic approaches to these diseases and is amongst the busiest robotic surgeons in the world.

He performs the following robotic procedures on a regular basis: nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy, partial and radical nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, adrenalectomy, and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (for testicular cancer patients).

He joined the Johns Hopkins staff after receiving his undergraduate and medical degrees from the Johns Hopkins University and completing his residency and advanced training in urology at Johns Hopkins as well.

Dr. Allaf runs a research laboratory aimed at decreasing the morbidity associated with the treatment of urologic cancers. He oversees a large registry of patients who have small kidney tumors and elect for careful and active observation. Additionally, given his background as a biomedical engineer, he is a leader in developing future technological advancements in the field of robotic and minimally invasive surgery.

Dr. Allaf has been the recipient of numerous academic awards and has been invited nationally and internationally to demonstrate robotic surgery and lecture on robotic prostatectomy and kidney surgery. He has written and published numerous research articles, textbook chapters, patents and video presentations in the field of laparoscopic and robotic urologic surgery.
