Kyrollis Attalla, MD, is a Urologic Oncologist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate, bladder, kidney, adrenal, testicular, penile, and upper tract urothelial cancers and his expertise includes robotic, laparoscopic, endoscopic, and open surgical techniques.
Dr. Attalla attended The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education in New York City, a prestigous accelerated 7-year combined B.S./M.D. program in collaboration with the University at Buffalo School of Medicine where he earned his Medical Degree. He completed his general surgery internship and urological surgery residency at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai where he served as Chief Resident.

Dr. Attalla’s research interests are in the immunogenomic predictors of response to immunotherapy in bladder and kidney cancer and aims to characterize these responses on a genomic and molecular level. He was the first to publish on the prevalence and landscape of actionable genomic alterations in kidney cancer which represents the largest and most comprehensive series to date. He has received several academic awards for his research, including the National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute (NIH/NCI) T32 Ruth L. Kirschstein Post-Doctoral National Research Service Award. Dr. Attalla has authored numerous textbook chapters and scientific papers published in major high-impact journals and frequently presents his research at international, national, and regional scientific conferences.
