Mark A. Perlmutter, M.D.
Dr. Perlmutter graduated cum laude from Duke University in 1998 with a bachelor of science in biology. Afterwards, he deferred his medical training for one year to teach as a Lecturer in the English Department at Assumption University in Bangkok, Thailand. He then earned his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2004. During this time, Dr. Perlmutter was awarded the Howard Hughes Medical Institute – National Institutes of Health Research Scholars Program. This highly prestigious research scholarship is available annually to only a total of 42 medical, dental or veterinary students nationwide. His research focused on gene array profiling of prostate cancer. Subsequently, he trained at New York University Medical Center, completing an internship in general surgery and residency in urology. In addition to training at NYU, Dr. Perlmutter underwent specialized robotic training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan in 2010. He trained directly under Dr. Mani Menon, the pioneer and world’s foremost authority on robotic surgery.
Dr. Perlmutter has been actively engaged in both basic science and clinical research. He has been published in multiple peer-reviewed journals, has presented at 13 national and international medical and scientific conferences and was an invited guest lecturer for the Department of Urology at SUNY Stony Brook Health Sciences Center. In 2003, Dr. Perlmutter won “Best Research Abstract in the Field of Basic Science” at the American Medical Student Association national convention for his work on prostate cancer.
Dr. Perlmutter manages patients with all urologic conditions. He has special interest in minimally invasive urology, da Vinci© robotic surgery and implantation of prosthetic devices for urology. In 2010, Dr. Perlmutter served on the Robotic Operations Group Committee at Jersey Shore University Medical Center to help establish a robotics program there.
