Five Questions With: Gyan Pareek

Dr. Gyan Pareek is the new chief of division of urology at Lifespan Corp. and the president of Brown Urology Inc. A Lifespan surgeon and Brown University faculty member since 2005, he is an expert in robotic surgery and in 2006 led the team that performed the first robotic surgery in southeastern New England. He discusses the evolution of urologic surgery over the last 20 years, the types and features of robot-assisted surgery offered at Lifespan and future plans for Lifespan urology.

As the new chief of urology at Lifespan, what is on top of your to-do list?

I am truly honored and humbled to be selected as the Chief of Urology for Lifespan, and to serve in this role along with being the Krishnamurthi Family Professor of Urology at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and the president of Brown Urology, Inc. My top priorities are growing our research base and expanding our technological capabilities so Lifespan’s urology program remains the best in New England. I want patients in the region to immediately think of Lifespan’s hospitals and Brown Urology as the place to go for treatment because we provide the highest quality care.
