Dr. Ronney Abaza is a world leader in robotic urology and a recognized expert in robotic surgery for prostate, kidney, and adrenal cancers. He is Director of Robotic Surgery at OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital and has performed approximately 3,000 robotic surgeries since 2006 with an annual number of robotic procedures placing him among the top 5 surgeons in the world. His practice and academic interests are dedicated solely to robotic surgery. He previously served on the Urology faculty at The University of Toledo and The Ohio State University and has been director of a robotic urologic surgery fellowship program since 2010. He has led the development of multidisciplinary robotic surgery programs at three institutions. Dr. Abaza is an innovator in robotic surgery as the first in the world to perform robotic surgery for adrenocortical carcinoma, kidney cancer with caval thrombi, ureteroileal anastomosis revisions after cystectomy, and renal autotransplantation. Dr. Abaza is a frequently invited speaker at national and international society meetings and instructional courses on robotic surgery. He has published more than 60 articles in the medical literature on robotic surgery and urologic cancers and has given more than 180 scientific presentations around the world with awards and recognitions from several major national and international medical societies. He is editor of the textbook "Robotic Renal Surgery" published by Springer that is the only published textbook dedicated to robotic kidney surgery. Dr. Abaza frequently serves as faculty for educational courses both in the U.S. and internationally and as a panelist, moderator or course director for various national and international medical society meetings. His work in robotic surgery has been published extensively in major urology journals. He has performed live surgery for the American Urological Association Annual Meeting, the World Congress of Endourology, the European Robotic Urology Symposium, and the International Robotic Urology Symposium among other venues. He frequently hosts surgeons from around the country and the world to observe him performing robotic surgery and share techniques.
