David M. Sisul, M.D.
Bingham Memorial Hospital is pleased to introduce David M. Sisul, MD, a highly-trained urologist with Bingham Memorial Urology. Dr. Sisul specializes in minimally invasive surgery, but is trained in the full scope of urological care including management of kidney, prostate and bladder disorders.
Dr. Sisul participated in Harvard University’s Pre-Medical Extension Program and earned his medical degree from the University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine. He completed his General Surgery and Urology residencies at the University of California, San Diego.
His focus is in using the latest in minimally invasive technology, most notably the da Vinci robotic system and GreenLight laser therapy, for urologic disease management. His main interests lie in prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate) and male sexual dysfunction (impotence). Additionally, he manages disorders of the full urologic spectrum including bladder and kidney cancer, kidney stones, hydrocele, spermatocele, incontinence, urinary tract infections, and voiding dysfunction.
While studying anthropology and archaeology in college at the University of Chicago, Dr. Sisul spent five months in sub-Saharan Africa where he witnessed firsthand how preventable diseases like malaria, tuberculosis and HIV can go unchecked. Seeing this unmet medical need motivated him to make the treatment of others his career. Prior to his formal medical training, he spent two years working to develop novel HIV and influenza vaccines and another year working to better elucidate the mechanism of anthrax’s virulence. Then, when someone close was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he felt compelled to make urology his ambition with the intent to contribute maximally in bringing a better life to those with urologic disease.
“I strive to consistently provide excellent patient outcomes and pride myself on this,” says Dr. Sisul. “Further, I want to do all I can to help people find relief and not be afraid to live their lives because of urologic concerns such as urinary or sexual dysfunction.”
When Dr. Sisul is not practicing medicine, he and his wife, an emergency medicine physician, enjoy spending time with their young family and with friends. He is excited to be settling in eastern Idaho where he can fully enjoy his hobbies of skiing, fishing, and mountain biking.
