With over 30 years' experience in urology and urologic oncology, Mark Kawachi brings a vast wealth of expertise to each case he handles and each patient he treats.
 
Dr. Kawachi trained at University of California, Los Angeles, and University of Southern California, joining City of Hope in 1992. 
 
He has spearheaded the development of two of City of Hope's most prominent programs in the treatment of prostate cancer: robotic radical prostatectomy (he is an acknowledged expert in the use of the daVinci robot) and computer-assisted prostate brachytherapy, where radioactive “seeds” are implanted directly into the tumor. Dr. Kawachi is focused on finding new and better ways to minimize the side effects of prostate cancer treatment.
