Top Urologists Jamison Jaffe and Justin Harmon Join St. Mary Medical Staff
Comprehensive Urologic Specialists offer advanced care for complex urologic conditions
LANGHORNE, Pa., October 1, 2013 – St. Mary Medical Center is pleased to welcome two of the region’s top urologic surgeons to its medical staff, Jamison Jaffe, DO, and Justin Harmon, DO, of Comprehensive Urologic Specialists. Urologists are physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions of the urinary tract in men and women, and the reproductive system in men, utilizing medical management and specialized surgical procedures.
Having completed hundreds of cases, Dr. Jaffe and Dr. Harmon are among the most experienced urologists in the region to perform complex procedures using robotic surgical technology. Both are accomplished presenters who train physicians across the country in minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgical techniques, especially for the treatment of prostate cancer. Both physicians completed fellowship training in laparoscopic and robotic urologic surgery at the prestigious L’institute Mutualiste Montsouris in Paris, where the laparoscopic prostatectomy procedure was pioneered.
Dr. Jaffe and Dr. Harmon have extensive experience in the treatment of other urologic cancers, including bladder, kidney, ureter, adrenal and testicle. They also specialize in minimally invasive treatment options for kidney stone disease, erectile dysfunction, incontinence and numerous other urologic disorders, including painful urination, enlarged prostate, infections and cystitis. Millions of men and women suffer from urologic disorders at some point in their lives. “The expertise and advanced urologic procedures that we bring is generally found only at university hospitals -- but we now bring this state-of-the-art urologic care to St Mary Medical Center,” says Dr. Jaffe.
Advances in robotic and minimally invasive techniques can improve outcomes for some patients. “Patients generally prefer minimally invasive urologic surgery because it offers the benefits of reduced pain, smaller incisions, less loss of blood, and quicker recovery times,” says Dr. Harmon.
For multiple years, Dr. Jaffe has been recognized as a “Top Doc” in U.S. World & News Report, and as a “Top Doctor in Urologic Surgery” by Philadelphia Magazine. Dr. Harmon also has been named a “Top Doctor” for multiple years by Philadelphia Magazine.
The capabilities of Comprehensive Urologic Specialists will serve to expand the robotic surgical program at St. Mary Medical Center. “The community relies on St. Mary for access to the best technology and most advanced clinical expertise. The knowledge and skill of these accomplished surgeons support our mission in providing the highest quality of care in the treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous conditions of the genitourinary tract,” says Joseph Conroy, MD, FACS, St. Mary Vice President and Chief Medical Officer.
Comprehensive Urologic Specialists has a new office opening on the campus of St. Mary Medical Center in the St. Clare Medical Building, Suite 334, 1203 Langhorne-Newtown Road, in Langhorne.
