Dr. Turk removed a Cancerous tumor on my Adrenal gland laproscopically and I was able to join my friends on a planned vacation to Ireland. He was wonderful!
A great experience

All the staff I met were friendly and professional which is great when facing a major surgery like this. My wife was very pleased that Dr Tuerk gave her an update straight after surgery while I was in the recovery room. I stayed overnight and was released the next day and drove 4 hours to my home in Maine. My wife drove not me. I would. Ertainly recommend Ingolf Tuerk and his team

A lot of older reviews here, not many newer ones. I interviewed with three surgeons to remedy my prostate cancer. They all seem to paint dire pictures and provide minimal guarantees of success, typical. What you're left with is choosing by 3rd party hearsay and self-promotion, Dr Tuerk won. Everything seemed rushed, time is money, rockstar surgeon. Prostate out and guess what? success, nerves spared but because they don't evacuate all surgical gas and they like to remove many lymph nodes, even for Gleason 6, there is major major swelling which will "go away in a month", maybe. Try strapping a 4 pound soccer ball to your member and exercising or even walking with that for a month. Other institutions take the time to drain much of the surgical gas so swelling is very minimal. OK, go home after one day in a closet of a private room where 1/2 the nurses don't want to be there. Two weeks later problem with surgery, call St E's night line, ask for on duty urologist, told they will call, they never did. Next day, call Dr. Tuerk's office, leave messages with secretary, no return calls. Evidently they don't do repairs. Just a factory. Go to unrelated ER and they say they won't touch anything Dr. Tuerk has done and to go call Dr. Tuerk. I guess you're always a success if you ignore the problems. Funny how all the reviews are older. Here's a tip that I learned too late. Always demand a 3 Tesla Endo-rectal MRI and if the cancer is not outside the prostate find a surgeon who will leave the lymph nodes and do nerve sparing. At that point open or closed surgery doesn't matter and in fact many friends who had open surgery have fair fewer issues with pain and swelling afterward. We've all got 10 years minimum regardless of outcome.
Don't go to anyone else

Dr. Tuerk is an amazing surgeon. It is one year out from my prostate surgery. I don't think I would be anywhere near as happy if I had not chosen Dr. Tuerk to do my surgery.

Dr. Tuerk was very responsive and spent considerable time with my wife and I. I have full confidence in his ability as a surgeon after meeting with him. Also his personal communication and interest in my case was exceptional.
Simply the best

I'm a 57 year old male who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in Feb. 2013. I had an appointment with Dr. Tuerk the next week and was in surgery less than 3 weeks later. Dr. Tuerk went over all the negatives and dangers of the surgery at my pre-surgery appointment. He also made it a point of making small of the possibilty of "everything" being normal or functional and didn't want my expectations to be too high. He did save all the nerves which was almost as relieving as being cancer free. Well 5 weeks after surgery I am playing golf, working and for the most part my life is back to normal. I have friends who had the same surgery as I had prior to my meeting Dr. Tuerk. They all had problems that followed which were far greater than anything I experienced. My recovery has been quick and life is good. Dr. Tuerk and his staff were outstanding and I would recommend him to all.

Dr Tuerk has done an outstanding job with my surgery especially considering the added complexity of the task. I went in with a PSA of 10.8 and a gleason of 7. Now one week later everything works great. The laparoscopic procedure was performed while navigating the 3 hernia screens and all the cancer was removed. My major difficulty was the catheter which slowed my ability to walk enough following the surgery. So I am on blood thinners to eradicate any additional issues with blood clots. I feel strong now and look forward to returning to what should be a reasonably normal lifestyle. I would most strongly recommend Dr Tuerk.
