John G. Pattaras, MD, FACS was Atlanta's first fellowship trained laparoscopic urologist and has over 25+ years of laparoscopic/robotic surgical experience.


Before joining Emory University School of Medicine and Emory Healthcare as Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery he completed a National Cancer Institute/NIH fellowship focusing on prostate cancer treatments.

He specializes in robotic cancer surgery (predominantly prostate and kidney) as well as reconstructive kidney and ureteral surgery. He has one of the southeast's largest experience in robotic prostatectomy and robotic partial nephrectomies (removing tumors while saving the remaining kidney).

He also has extensive experience in high dose (HDR) brachytherapy for prostate cancer partnering with his radiation oncology colleagues to deliver the most focused option for radiation delivery.

He sees surgical patients at his office at Emory St. Joseph's Hospital location and  participates weekly in a prostate Multi-Disciplinary Clinic seeing cancer patients with a Radiation Oncologist for a more thorough evaluation and review of treatment options.

His practice is specifically at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital and has one the state's largest volume performing robotic prostatectomy and kidney surgery.
