Disastrous by Ben H
After my prostatectomy, I remained in Cleveland Clinic hospital for 6 days in tremendous pain. Against my will, I was discharged and within 24 hours was in emergency surgery in another city hospital where I lost part of my intestine, underwent 3 additional surgeries. I too was left totally impotent and incontinent. I believe Kaouk is an incompetent, uncaring, and dishonest doctor.

I was left totally impotent and incontinent by Kaouk. I lost a tremendous amount of blood and suffered severe complications not reflected in op note. CMS investigations revealed Kaouk was performing multiple simultaneous major complex surgeries using residents without patient knowledge or consent. CMS also revealed that staff and residents in the urology department were NOT credentialed or privileged. He did not disclose his conflict of interest with Intuitive Surgical and represented false volume experience and positive outcomes to patients. He is currently under investigation by the State Medical Board of Ohio and has had multiple malpractice lawsuits filed against him by permanently harmed patients. Avoid!!!

Dr. Kaouk was very informational and clear when discussing options for prostate cancer. Being only 44 years old, he clearly identified the associated risks and chances for a full recovery of all three aspects of the robotic surgery. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Kaouk, and I quickly developed a trust within him to go forward with the surgery. It has now been 22 months since the surgery and I am cancer free, and the other two aspects of the recovery are about as good as I could have hoped for. Thank you Dr. Kaouk for not only saving my life, but for allowing me the chance to resume all of the activities that I enjoyed prior to surgery.

I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma in 2009. The first doctor I went to said because of the location of the cancer my whole left kidney needed to be removed. I then went for another opinion and this doctor recommended Dr. Kaouk. I am so thankful for his recommendation. Dr. Kaouk was extremely encouraging and reassured me he could remove the cancer successfully . The surgery was a complete success and I am now going on 5 years cancer free. He is extremely proficient, always upbeat and he did save my kidney and my life. My family and I will always be grateful to him and would recommend Dr. Kaouk to anyone.

Dr. Kaouk performed my partial nephrectomy in 2011 and did a wonderful job. I went back to Dr. Kaouk this year (2013) for a adrenalectomy. Dr. Kaouk is a wonderfully skilled surgeon and I am very grateful to him for saving my life.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012.I was confused by the various treatments available to me. After getting several opinions I decided to have Dr. Kaouk do the robotic surgery. He explained in great detail the procedure, the risks and benefits. I was extremely confident that he had the proper skills. I was extremely pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend that Dr. Kaouk be considered if you need to have your prostate removed. I am now 6 months cancer free and do not have any incontinent problems (but do have to go to the bathroom more often which was expected. I understand that some people that posted had problems but there is always a risk in surgery and there are no guarantees. Joe B.

Dr. Kaouk successfully removed a tumor from my remaining kidney and saved 75% of the kidney. He and all who worked with him were wonderful to us. Most highly recommend anyone with kidney cancer requiring surgery to consult with Dr. Kaouk.

Three years ago Dr. Kaouk removed my prostrate and performed a partial kidney removal. At my request he performed both during one operation. I have been extremely satisfied with the results and I am still cancer free, no problems with continence, and my sex life is great! He is a great doctor and I would recommend him to anyone. I don't understand some of the negative posts as my experience has been fantastic! Thank you Dr. Kaouk
