Urology Institute of Houston

Advanced Urologic Care

Dr. Steven Maislos, M.D. completed his undergraduate education at Yale University, his medical training at University of Texas Medical School at Houston and his residency in urology at State University of New York at Downstate- affiliated with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He also completed a fellowship in robotic, laparoscopic, and minimally invasive urologic surgery at Urology San Antonio. Currently he is in private practice in Houston at the Urology Institute of Houston. He treats men, women, and children for a wide variety of general and specialized urologic ailments. His specialty interest is in minimally invasive theraputic options for urologic diseases.

Among other teaching appointments, Dr. Maislos is a national proctor for Intuitive Surgical for whom he is qualified to teach urologists all over the nation his techniques in the field of robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomies.  He also is a proctor for Boston Scientific and teaches other physicians how to place minimally invasive slings for female urinary incontinence.

Dr. Maislos completed a robotics fellowship and subsequently was recruited to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital in Houston. He performed the first ever robotic prostatectomy at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital.  He has performed over 120 robotic prostate surgeries and has lectured on robotic prostate surgery in multiple countries from Argentina to the United States.
Dr. Maislos has also been on the cutting edge of endourologic research. He has published abstracts, papers, and videos on topics including stone cone ureteroscopy, dual deflexion ureteroscopy, and laparoscopic cryoablation of kidney tumors. In fact, he has presented his research at numerous World Congress in Endourology where leaders in the field of urology present the latest techniques in robotics, laparoscopy, and minimally invasive urologic surgery. He is also a principal investigator in several clinical trials and is a national speaker on behalf of several pharmaceutical companies.
Other advanced urologic cases for which Dr. Maislos has fellowship trainning include robotic pyeloplasty, laparoscopic nephrectomy, laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, laparoscopic cryoablation of renal tumors, laparoscopic renal cyst unroofing, CT scan guided radiofrequency ablation of renal tumors, and cryoablation of the prostate. Futhermore, he has special trainning with green light laser, holmium laser, and microwave therapy of the prostate for BPH (an enlarged/obstructing prostate.)

Outside of the hospital and office, Dr. Maislos finds time to give free prostate cancer screenings and lectures at a wide array of organizational meetings to increase awareness about prostate cancer and the minimally invasive treatments that should be strongly considered.  He is also on the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Health Committe and volunteers his time at the event.  As the only bilingual urologist with robotic and laparoscopic training in the greater Houston area, Dr. Maislos brings a unique perspective and set of skills to providing care for his patients.

Above all else, Dr. Maislos is a strong advocate for his patients and will take the time to make sure his patients receive the best urologic care possible.
