My goal is to provide each patient with the best possible care. I do this by establishing a personal relationship and using the latest and best techniques to achieve consistently excellent results. Most of my vasectomy patients are referred by other patients who have under gone the procedure. I am a very skilled and smooth surgeon and as a middle aged male, know how to place other men in my age group at ease.

Minimally invasive surgery
Dr. Brandt is the current Chairman of the Division of Urology at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge and the former Chairman of Urology at Presence Resurrection Medical Center in Northwest Chicago. He maintains a very active surgical and clinical practice within Uropartners, one of the largest Urology groups in the country, where he also serves on its board of directors. He is a graduate of University of Michigan Medical School and completed general surgery training in Boston and Urology residency at The University of Cincinnati. He is a long term member of the Society for Laparoscopic Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Surgery and a member of multiple Urologic organizations and professional societies. He has a broad clinical practice including urologic cancer, stone disease, female urology and prostate problems/men's health. He is a clinical professor with teaching duties for both residents and students who benefit from his wide range of interests.
Dr. Brandt is a leader in minimally invasive and robotic surgery for prostate cancer, kidney tumors and adrenal problems and performs on a weekly basis. He has performed hundreds of advanced robotic and laparoscopic surgeries and led the team performing the first laparoscopic radical nephrectomy at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital over 15 years ago. Not every case is appropriate for minimally invasive approaches, and he was the first area physician to successfully perform bladder replacement and reconstruction following total removal of the bladder for cancer over 20 years ago.
The treatment of kidney stones is a particular area of expertise. He employs the latest technology for stone retrieval and treatment and has done thousands of stone cases with a reputation for an unmatched stone free rate and enviably short hospital stays.
In addition, Dr. Brandt and his SBU have pioneered the use of convenient office treatments for routine concerns such as prostate enlargement and bladder cancer using in office anesthesia and a variety of minimally invasive endoscopic treatment techniques including Greenlight Laser Surgery (PVP). He also treats incontinence using a combination of approaches emphasizing non-operative methods when possible.
