About Dr. Mark J. Kelly
Dr. Mark J. Kelly, MD, is widely considered as one of the pillars of strength in the Urology field in Los Angeles over the last 25 years. He is often called the “Doctor’s Urologist.”
He is certified by the American Board of Urology, the longstanding Chief of Urology at Saint John’s Health Center, and an Assistant Professor of Urological Oncology at the John Wayne Cancer Institute in Santa Monica, California. Dr. Kelly’s operates a state-of-the-art private practice in Santa Monica where he offers truly personalized and cutting-edge care for his patients.
Dr. Kelly is a leading pioneer in the management of prostate cancer with expertise in prostate cancer detection, risk assessment, and in the performance of highly precise MRI Image-Guided Fusion Biopsy which can precisely locate prostate cancer. In many cases, this precision can result in the ability to recommend either no immediate treatment or, if necessary, “Focal Treatment” for one’s prostate cancer.
Focal Therapy has the potential to cure those prostate cancers that should be treated while minimizing the well-established side effects of invasive robotic surgery and radiation therapy including urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and rectal injury. Dr. Kelly is one of the only doctors in Greater Los Angeles to offer the ICEfx™ cryoablation system, which allows him to treat tumors without surgery and without causing sexual or urinary side effects.
In addition to diagnosing and treating prostate cancer, Dr. Kelly has expertise in a full range of men’s health issues, including all diseases of the male reproductive and urinary system. He has extensive experience in treating erectile dysfunction, including prosthetic surgery, helping men manage andropause and low testosterone, and diagnosing and treating sexually transmitted diseases.
Dr. Kelly attended the prestigious Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. After graduating, Dr. Kelly moved to Los Angeles, where he completed residencies in general surgery and urology at Kaiser Foundation Hospital under the tutelage of the world-renowned Dr. Stanley Brosman, who supervised Dr. Kelly’s urology residency and subsequently invited him to begin his private practice at Saint John’s.
While at Saint John’s, Dr. Kelly worked with Dr. Donald Morton, the founding surgeon of the widely respected John Wayne Cancer Institute, a component of Saint John’s Health Center.
