Overview

Dr. Monish Aron is an expert in robotic and laparoscopic surgery for malignant and benign conditions of the prostate, kidney, bladder, adrenal gland, and ureter. He trained in urology at some of the premier institutions in India, Australia, and the United States. Dr. Aron completed his fellowship training in advanced robotics and laparoscopy at the Cleveland Clinic, and was recruited to USC in 2009.

He has received numerous acclaimed awards including the GB Ong Medal from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, as well as several awards for his scientific presentations and surgical videos at the American Urological Association Congress. Dr. Aron has published extensively (>200 publications) and serves as reviewer for 8 leading urologic journals, including editorial board appointments for 3 journals.

Dr. Aron has played a pioneering role in the development and refinement of robotic prostate and kidney surgery, single incision laparoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery for bladder cancer. Dr. Aron has been invited to speak at and demonstrate minimally invasive surgical techniques at numerous national and international institutions.
