Dr. Richard Santucci (Figure 1), Director of the Center for Urologic Reconstruction and the Specialist-in-Chief for Urology at the 9-Hospital Detroit Medical Center, is an expert in trauma and reconstructive urology... We were honored to invite Dr. Santucci for an interview to review the developments in trauma and reconstructive urology during the congress after his speech on “Genitourinary Trauma”... In renal trauma, I think we have gotten much smarter about just who needs surgery and who does not... Twenty years ago, when we had mastered difficult kidney operations like partial nephrectomy, we operated on most patients with renal injury because we were sure it was the best thing... Now, starting with the work of my mentor Dr. McAninch, and using datasets from our medical center and later all over the world, we realize that most of these injuries do not require surgery... Even more recently, we’ve seen that those renal injuries which are bleeding significantly might be best treated by angioembolization... I really do love surgery... I became an urologist because our surgery “works”... As urologists, we have a high success rate of many of our cancer surgeries and we can often help patients through our reconstruction surgery techniques... In my sub specialty field, the cost-benefit ratio of what we do to our patients is often very favorable... So it is true: I really love surgery, and I love urology, and reconstructive urology perhaps most of all, because they work to make our patients better!
