Meet The Doctor

Dr. Alexander Gershman
Urologist

Dr. Gershman did his postgraduate training at UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles, CA, where he has successfully completed a residency in Urology and a fellowship in Endourology.

In 1990, while doing clinical research at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Dr. Gershman was among a group of surgeons who were at the forefront of developing a new revolutionary surgical technique, Laparoscopic Surgery. He was one of the first surgeons in the world to apply laparoscopic method to Urologic surgery becoming a recognized expert in the field of Minimally-Invasive Surgery.

In the past 25 years Dr. Gershman has taught hundreds of courses training other physicians in Laparoscopic Surgery. He was invited to lecture and perform surgeries in the capacity of a Visiting Professor to medical institutions in the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Canada, Norway, Russia, as well as many U.S. cities. Dr. Gershman is the author of numerous published scientific articles and abstracts. He co-authored several textbook chapters.

Today Dr. Gershman divides his professional time between a busy private practice and various academic endeavors.
