Amir H. Lebastchi, MD, joined Keck Medicine of USC after completing a residency in urology at the University of Michigan and a fellowship in urological oncology at the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. He is dedicated to using the most effective, minimally invasive techniques for urological malignancies.
Dr. Lebastchi has a special interest in MRI/TRUS fusion-guided prostate biopsies, a technique that combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and an ultrasound probe. He also specializes in focal therapy for prostate cancer, including noninvasive techniques such as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and cryoablation.
Dr. Lebastchi’s research has been published in numerous medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA Surgery, Nature Reviews Urology and European Urology. He is an invited reviewer for leading medical journals. His goal is to offer patient-centered, compassionate and state-of-the-art care while focusing on the patient as a whole.
