After obtaining his Medical Degree from East Carolina University School of Medicine in 2000, he completed a surgical internship at Texas Tech University, where he worked under Dr. Bernard Mittemeyer whose prostatectomy technique is the basis of today’s robotic prostatectomy. Dr. Sharpe completed his Urologic Residency at Emory University in 2005 and is board certified by the American Board of Urology.
Dr. Sharpe treats all urological conditions but has a special interests in prostate cancer, vaginal prolapse, kidney cancer, and erectile dysfunction. Prior to joining Northeast Georgia Urological Associates he was instrumental in expanding the minimally invasive treatment options and making these options more widely available to the patients of North Alabama. He was the area’s first and most experienced robotic surgeon, offering robotic surgery for kidney cancer, cystocele/pelvic prolapse, and kidney drainage reconstruction ( i.e. pyeloplasty ). He was also the first urologist in that area to perform complete laparoscopic procedures such as kidney radiofrequency treatment of renal tumors, pyeloplasty, and pure laparoscopic nephrectomy.
Northeast Georgia Urological Associates is pleased to have Dr. Sharpe join our treatment team and are excited to add his expertise in Urologic minimally invasive robotic surgery in serving our patients and the people of Northeast Georgia.
