Dr. Misop Han is David Hall McConnell 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 robotic nerve-sparing prostatectomy and robotic nephrectomy.
Dr. Han received his undergraduate and medical degrees at Johns Hopkins. After an internship in surgery and residency in urology, also at Johns Hopkins, he worked as faculty at Northwestern University and Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. In 2006, he joined the Johns Hopkins faculty.
His research interests include the outcome of radical prostatectomy, medical robotics and prediction modeling (what happens to men following surgery for prostate cancer). He has published extensively in these subjects and has received international and national recognition for his research. He is actively involved in several clinical research projects with the database of more than 20,000 men who received surgery for prostate cancer at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
He is a member of the American Urological Association and the American Medical Association, and is certified by the American Board of Urologists.
