In addition to Dr. Figenshau, I might also suggest Dr. Gerald Andriole. He is a Siteman urologist/surgeon. I have not seen him myself but have a friend who has and is very happy. Andriole is older and been around Wash U a very long time.
I go to Siteman and see oncologists, primarily Dr. Bruce Roth, but also have seen Dr. Eric Knoche (both med oncs) and Dr. Hiram Gay (radiation onc). My regular urologist was Dr. Kent Adkins and when things got ugly he referred me to Dr. Roth who was his teacher at Vanderbilt years ago and the two of them still stay in touch about
my case almost 3 years after I have seen Adkins. Siteman is wonderful! Good luck.
