Ratings for Dr. MARK G. Delworth
Dr. Mark Delworth was recommended by a doctor from a competing health care provider for my "radical surgery" to remove cancer contained in the prostrate gland.He was terrific,the outcome was highly successful,and my recovery was as envisioned. I would recommend him without any reservations.
Dr. Delworth was recommended as a surgeon by my urologist at the time, who by the way was not in the same group. Mark is a highly skilled, compassionate, and caring surgeon. He takes time with his patients to answer questions and provides honest and frank assessments. He also sets realistic expectations. It is important to keep in mind that RP (open or robotic) is major surgery. Dr. D performed my RARP and we are working through the associated side effects that come with prostate surgery. It is important to take the time necessary to understand your PC diagnosis and options. If it comes down to a Radical Prostatectomy you can rest assured that you are in good hands with Dr. Delworth.
Dr Delworth stepped in to solve a complex urology problem for me, then directed me to a doctor for a nephrectomy, and even came to see me post-operatively. I work in healthcare and heard from many others that Dr Delworth is awesome. He certainly is! I HIGHLY recommend this kind expert.
Dr Delworth just performed robotic prostrate removal on me last week. When you have cancer, it's not about anything but picking the best Dr. Who will make sure you live a long and functional life. His staff is excellent, they are punctual, and caring but most important is the fact that Dr. Delworth is excellent at what he does and he will give you 100%. He called me three times during the whole process, most of the time after dinner and the last time it was 11:00 at night. Yes he was reviewing my results that late into the night. The surgery was last week and tissue samples show I'm cancer free. Thanks to his diligence he got it all. I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr Delworth performed my robotic surgery in 2008. As of my last follow up in October 2011 my PSA in undetectable. No problems with urinary issues. Sexual function is not good but one of my nerves was removed during surgery. I would recommend Mark.
I am a 50 year old who was diagnosed with prostate cancer (August 2008). PSA of 10.3, gleason score of 7. Given that the cancer was believed to be entirely contained plus my age, both my urologist and GP recommended robotic surgery and referred me to Delworth. I was forewarned that he didn't have the best bedside manner. I found that he didn't spend time with small talk; was all business, but he took all the time that I needed to discuss the surgery and he answered all questions to my satisfaction. What was important was his technical competence. He has performed hundreds of surgeries with the Davinci. I had a radical, bilateral nerve sparing prostectomy in late November. I experienced no problems after the surgery, ie: infections. It is now January and my first post OP PSA was where it needed to be (near O), there is no incontinence (only experienced it for a week after the Catheter), and with Cialas, have no ED issues. If you need this surgery, I would recommend Delworth.
