Simon J Hall, MD

Dr. Hall is Director of the Barbara and Maurice Deane Prostate Health and Research Center.

My clinical interests are primarily urologic oncology, specifically the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of prostate cancer, renal cell cancer and urothelial (transitional cell) cancer affecting the kidneys and bladder. In the area of prostate cancer I am especially interested in the use of multimodal therapy for the treatment of high risk cancer and of novel therapies in the treatments of disease recurrence  following definitive treatment. In the area of urothelial cancers of the kidney and renal cell carcinomas I am interesed in further development of the use of laparoscopy and other minimally invasive treatment such as percutaneous cryotherapy for the treatment of selected renal lesions. In the area of bladder cancer I am interested in the use of robotics to decrease the morbidity by removing the bladder and in reconstructive techniques to remake a new bladder out of intestine so that an individual patient's quality of life after surgery will be as close to that pre-surgery.
