Dr. Nitin Sharma is a fellowship-trained urologist who specialized in Endourology and Minimally invasive urology, particularly for Kidney stones and Benign hyperplasia of the prostate. He is presently working as an Assistant Professor of Urology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA. His areas of expertise include minimally invasive percutaneous renal surgeries like Mini PCNL and Ultra-mini PCNL. He also has a keen interest and expertise in laser prostatectomy, particularly Holmium laser enucleation (HoLEP) and Thulium Fiber laser enucleation (ThuFLEP).

As an assistant professor of urology in an academic institute, Dr. Sharma instructs students, residents, and fellows at the University of Rochester Medical Center. His research focuses on the role of artificial intelligence in predicting the success of stone clearance by various endourologic procedures.
