Treatment Team


My goal is to provide my patients with the understanding, knowledge, and support to make the best decision for their cancer care....the advice, care, and support that I give to my patients is the same as I would give to a member of my own family.

Prostate and Urologic Cancers Clinic

Sanjay Patel, MD

Assistant Professor, Department of Urology

Dr. Sanjay Patel completed his undergraduate training in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University. He proceeded to complete his medical school at Vanderbilt Univeristy in Nashville, TN and urologic surgery training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. After completing a Society of Urologic Oncology fellowship at the University of Chicago he joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urology at the University of Oklahoma.

Dr. Patel treats all urologic cancer (adrenal, kidney, ureter, bladder, urethra, and tesicular cancer) utilizing open, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery techniques. He has a particular interest in the use of minimally invasive robotic appraoches to treat urologic malignancy and has extensive robotic surgery experience. He oversees the bladder instillation clinic where patients are given immunotherapy and chemotherapy directly into the bladder to treat superfical bladder cancer. He also is developing techniques to perform intracoroporeal robotic urinary diversions, where he is using the minimally invasive robotic techniques to create bladders out of the intestinal tract.

Dr. Patel works with the department of engineering to develop novel diagnostic and thereauputic technology to treat urologic disease. He also has an interest in genetic and molecular profiling of cancers and its use to guide treatment of urologic cancer.
