Dr. Elkhoury joins one of the most established and respected large urology group practices in the U.S., now with 11 urologists/urologic surgeons.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Elkhoury join our group practice,” said Moses M. Kim, M.D., Ph.D., President & CEO, Orange County Urology Associates. “He is a talented urologist, endourologist, urologic surgeon, and robotic surgeon. We are very fortunate to have him on our team to provide less invasive procedures to our patients so they can recover more quickly and have the best possible outcomes.”
“I’m thrilled to be joining Orange County Urology Associates (OCUA). The physicians and staff here have created a culture of top-notch patient care and uncompromising clinical and surgical acumen. I look forward to continuing OCUA’s tradition of exceptional service for our community,” Dr. Elkhoury said.
Dr. Elkhoury is a Los Angeles native who completed his urologic surgery residency at the UCLA Department of Urology. After residency, he completed a clinical fellowship in endourology and robotic surgery at UCLA.
He specializes in advanced endoscopic surgery for complex kidney stone disease and in robotic surgery to treat patients with both malignant and benign conditions of the kidneys and prostate. Dr. Elkhoury is skilled in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), both in the clinic and the operating room. He is fellowship-trained in Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (also known as HoLEP), a cutting-edge surgery for men with enlarged prostates causing urinary symptoms. Dr Elkhoury is one of the only urologists in California who performs HoLEP, and he is excited to bring his unique skillset to Orange County Urology Associates.
Dr. Elkhoury says he always strives to treat his patients like family. “I aim to take as much time as necessary to discuss the patient’s concerns and educate the patient and his or her family on the treatment options so we can together come up with the best plan of care possible.”
“Patients experience so much anxiety when faced with a medical issue, and seeing a physician can be a very stressful experience. My goal is to put my patients and their families at ease, reassuring them that my team and I will do everything we can to get the patient to better health and quality of life,” Dr. Elkhoury said.
Dr. Elkhoury is widely published in the medical literature and serves as a reviewer for the peer-reviewed journals Journal of Urology and Urology. At UCLA, he was a Chief Resident in Urology and was a Wasserman Scholar.
