Highlights

Dr. Daniel Eun runs a regional high-volume referral practice for robotic treatment of genitourinary oncology as well as complex reconstructive surgery of the kidney, ureter, prostate and bladder. He has performed thousands of robotic procedures and more than 50 different types of robotic procedures. Dr. Eun has an extensive referral network from the tri-state area and commonly sees referrals from the northeast and mid-Atlantic regions.  He commonly sees surgical consultations for complex patients with limited or no surgical options, such as morbidly obese, Jehovah’s Witness, prior surgery/radiation, prior trauma or surgical injuries.

Dr. Eun is internationally regarded as a thought leader in advanced robotic surgery techniques, robotic procedure development and training. He was trained at the first robotic training program in the world and helped develop some of the earliest techniques even before a surgical robot existed in Philadelphia.  Since then, he has remained actively engaged with the device industry in meeting the needs of surgeons and guiding them to develop surgical technology for the future. He has developed numerous novel techniques and procedure modifications which have significantly advanced his field. He has extensively published peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters and video teaching guides. He frequently travels nationally and internationally as an invited lecturer, present research, train surgeons and has performed over 50 live demonstration surgeries at meetings and training courses around the world. As director of Temple’s Robotic Urologic Surgery Fellowship Training Program and Chief of Robotic Surgical Services, Dr. Eun is an active member of the teaching faculty of the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, working closely with medical students, residents and fellows.

Dr. Ewn and his team are outstanding medical professions and caring individuals. I received a positive report that I have detectable signs of cancer. I will have my PSA tested again in three months and will come back to Dr. Ewn for the test results. I owe my life to the skill and talents of Dr. Ewn's team and to the speed in which I received treatment before an aggressive cancer has time to spread.
