Professional Summary

Abhinav Sidana, MD is a Urologic Surgeon specializing in the diagnosis and management of urologic cancers. Dr. Sidana completed medical schooling at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. After graduation, he joined the Brady Urological Institute of Johns Hopkins Hospital as a postdoctoral fellow where he worked on translational projects relating to cancer immunotherapy and was instrumental in translating the preclinical work to a clinical trial on ‘cryoimmunotherapy’. He then completed Urology residency at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.  Subsequently, he completed a Urologic Oncology fellowship at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health.  Dr. Sidana’s clinical practice includes both surgical and non-operative management of prostate, kidney, ureteral, testicular, and bladder cancers.  Dr. Sidana’s research interests include functional prostate imaging, image-guided and focal treatments for prostate cancer and clinical trials on novel treatments for urologic cancers.
