Blake D. Hamilton, M.D.
Dr. Hamilton has several areas of interest and expertise.
His primary interest is minimally invasive kidney surgery. This began at the Cleveland Clinic in the 1990’s, where he was in the forefront of urologic laparoscopy. From there, he brought to Utah extensive experience in laparoscopic renal and adrenal surgery. He has been part of the transformation that has brought laparoscopic techniques to the world of kidney cancer and has seen the introduction of robotic technology (the da Vinci surgical system) applied to the kidney. Currently, he focuses on laparoscopic radical nephrectomy and robot-assisted partial nephrectomy. He also has extensive experience in thermal ablation for small renal tumors (cryoablation).
Dr. Hamilton works on obstructive renal pathology and performs laparoscopic renal and ureteral reconstruction, including pyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction obstruction and ureteral reimplant for ureteral obstruction. As with other procedures, he has been a leader in adopting robotic technology to reduce operative time and improve patient outcomes.
Given his fellowship training in Endourology, he also has considerable experience in the management of complex kidney stone disease—both surgical and medical management. His consistent clinical volume over the years has helped him amass a remarkable experience with over 600 percutaneous operations and over 1000 ureteroscopic procedures, making him perhaps the most experienced endoscopic stone surgeon in Utah.
In addition, he has an interest in male infertility and has worked with the Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine (part of the University HealthCare organization) for the last decade to provide surgical care for men with infertility from a variety of causes. This includes reconstruction (primarily vasectomy reversal), sperm retrieval for use with in vitro fertilization (IVF), and varicocele repair.

For being my first surgery, Dr Hamilton made it as relaxing of a time as possible. With all the information and concern he showed towards my case, I would fully recommend his services to anyone. If I need this type of treatment again, he will be the first Dr on my list.UofU Patient August 20, 2013
