Dr. Aron is the best!

I had Ileal Conduit surgery in April. It has changed my life! I was always getting infections, in and out of the hospital. I've gained weight and feel like a new person. Taking care of the stoma is very easy. I highly recommend this procedure and of course Dr. Aron!

Exceptional Doctor!

My name is Manuel La Rosa and I am 57 years old. In 2010, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. My initial urology doctor informed me that it was okay to only do radiation because I was still young. Six years later, in March 2016, I was feeling constant severe pain on my lower back. I made an appointment with a different urology doctor, who ordered a series of laboratory tests. He informed me that there was an abnormality in my CT Scan but reassured me that it was not connected to prostate cancer. Two months later when I went for a follow-up appointment, I found out that my urology doctor had retired, and I did feel as though I was left hanging, unsure of my condition. The severe pain on my lower back was still coming and going, so I decided to go back to my primary internal physician (early 2017), who referred me to another urology doctor, who then highly recommended Dr. Monish Aron. When I first met Dr. Aron, he reviewed my case and ordered new tests. The test results showed that there was something suspicious in my pelvis so he ordered the Axumin test, which was denied by my insurance. Dr. Aron and his team were very assertive and spoke with my insurance about the necessity of the Axumin test. Shortly after, the authorization for the Axumin test was approved by my insurance. The Axumin test showed that the prostate cancer came back and had metastasized to my pelvis, bladder, and a small part of my right ureter. Dr. Aron and his team educated and prepared me for my surgery/procedure: robotic radical cystoprostatectomy, bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection, and ileal conduit (conversion after removal of my bladder). I am happy to say that the surgery was successful because of Dr. Aron's proficient skill and knowledge in this type of procedure & that I am on my way to a full recovery. Dr. Monish Aron was there for me throughout this significant challenge in my life. I wanted to take the time to tell my story, recommend Dr. Monish Aron, and write a review for him because he helped me feel optimistic and secure when I was at my lowest. He also did everything he can to guide me towards a successful surgery and recovery. It took a series of doctors but I will always be grateful that I was led to Dr. Aron, as I feel like he saved my life. Dr. Aron is honest, compassionate, always prepared for a challenge, a problem-solver, and an exceptional patient advocate. If I could give him more than 5 stars on this review, I would! My family and I thank Dr. Monish Aron, and may the good Lord bless him.

Great Dr with the ability to do surgery that other drs couldn't.

Dr Monish Aron was able to do a robotic surgery on my R kidney from the back . This was a surgery that my first Dr wasn't able to do and he was good enough to refer me to Dr Aron. The surgery went very well and I'm three weeks out and feeling very good . I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a highly skilled surgeon with a very attentive and professional staff.
