David A. Taub, M.D., M.B.A., of the Holy Cross Medical Group, is a Board Certified Urologist specializing in the treatment of prostate cancer and daVinci robotic-assisted surgeries. He received his medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine.  Dr. Taub has developed a niche in the minimally invasive treatment of urologic malignancies, has significant experience performing robotic prostatectomies, and has taught these techniques to urologists-in-training at the University of Toledo. Robotic surgery allows for minimally invasive procedures that reduce the risks and pain involved with surgery and is linked with faster recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
