Urology Specialist, Urology Surgeon: Samuel H. Eaton, MD

Author: Duke Health

My name is Samuel Eaton, I'm a urologist here at Duke. I specialize in endourology, which is minimally invasive treatment of stones, as well as minimally invasive treatment of urologic disease including kidney cancer and prostrate cancer. Especially with new patients, I think the crucial thing for me is in addition to what comes as sort of a basic information and understanding why they're there from a disease or problems standpoint. But also to sort of understand where they're coming from, more generally in life and their perspectives on things, so that we can work to deal with their problem in a medically appropriate way, but in a way that fits with their goals as well.

The types of patients that I see are a lot of kidney stone patients who are very rewarding patients, because having a kidney stone, as anyone will tell you, is one of the most uncomfortable and painful experiences of your life. And I think there's nothing more satisfying then getting people through that experience and getting them on their way and back to their daily lives as quickly as possible. The other subset of patients I see are mainly prostate cancer and kidney cancer patients. And those patients again, the satisfaction of having them come in with what can be a very serious problem and getting them where they're cured of their disease.

There's really nothing more satisfying.
