About This Provider

Dr. Michael Witthaus is a fellowship-trained urologist who specializes in reconstructive and robotic surgery, penile prosthetic surgery, and cancer survivorship, with a particular focus on men’s urologic care and male sexual health. Dr. Witthaus emphasizes improving men’s health and quality of life following cancer survivorship including penile function and continence recovery following prostate cancer treatment, as well as restoring the urinary tract via reconstructive techniques to eliminate alternative drainage requirements. He believes that survivors of cancer should receive thorough education on prosthetic options (penile implants) for meeting recovery goals, which include sexual health and continence. His team approach to urologic care is paramount to his commitment to improving quality of life for each patient.

Dr. Witthaus serves as the Medical Director of Genitourinary Reconstruction and Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center, where his clinical practice focuses on urologic reconstruction with emphases in robotic reconstruction, urethroplasty and prosthetic surgery.
