Dr. Propa Ghosh – 2015 Top 25 Intrapreneur

Medical Director of Robotic Surgical Services at Hunterdon Medical Center

Dr. Ghosh specializes in urology, which has traditionally been a male-dominated field of medicine. “Many people curiously ask what led me to choose urology,” she says. “I tell them that in my early years of training, I witnessed, firsthand, the remarkable spectrum of surgery we perform, from endoscopic, to open, to robotic surgery, and I became absolutely enthralled with the profession.”

A graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Dr. Ghosh is fellowship trained in robotics and minimally invasive surgery, with expertise in kidney and prostate cancer. She earned her medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where she won the prestigious Compass Award for scoring in the top 10% of her graduating class in Clinical Skills Assessment, as well as the Renaissance Student Award for her ability to integrate and excel in the arts. She then completed her general surgery residency and urology residency at Maimonides Hospital, followed by a fellowship in robotics and minimally invasive surgery at Montefiore Medical Center. Dr. Ghosh has published in several journals, including the esteemed Gold Journal of Urology.

“Urologic surgery is extraordinarily innovative, pushing frontiers of what we are capable of achieving,” she says. “Robotic surgery is elegant, artful and precise, and I embrace the benefits it brings to both surgeons and patients.”
