David Melendez is a urologist with Orlando Health Medical Group Urology. Using robotic surgery and other advanced treatments, Dr. Melendez cares for patients with diseases and conditions of the male urinary tract and reproductive system. Some of these include cancers of the kidney and prostate, incontinence, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Urologic conditions may be painful and difficult to manage without experienced medical care. Dr. Melendez has special interest in many areas of urologic care, including:
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
- Cancers of the prostate and kidneys
- Erectile dysfunction
- General urology
- Men’s health
- Robotic surgery
- Stone disease
- Urology prosthetics
Dr. Melendez is highly trained in the use of robotic surgery to treat conditions and diseases of the prostate and kidneys. A robotic system provides him enhanced visibility and range of motion, resulting in fewer complications and routinely better outcomes. This procedure helps to preserve a patient’s urinary and sexual function and enables most to return home more quickly and experience less pain and scarring.
