Dr. Dietrick specializes in the treatment of prostate cancer, including da Vinci robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. In addition, his focus includes medical and minimally invasive treatment of enlarged prostate (BPH), voiding problems in men and no-scalpel vasectomy.
His interest in cancer treatment began in the 1980s with work at the National Cancer Institute and continued through his years on the clinical faculty of Stanford Medical Center and the Johns Hopkins University Department of Urology. Dr. Dietrick performed the first da Vinci robotic prostatectomy at a community hospital in Maryland in 2005 and has performed well over 1,000 successful opertions since then, more than any other community urologist in Maryland. Dr. Dietrick had performed traditional open prostatectomies for 15 years prior to this.
