As Contributing Editor for The Doctor's Channel, Dr. Landman will provide ideas and content for the site in the specialty of urology and will serve to oversee the creation of future minimally invasive urology-, laparoscopy- and endourology-based educational videos. Additionally, Dr. Landman will lend his expertise to ensure that cutting-edge techniques in these fields are regularly showcased on the site.

The world-renowned Dr. Landman is an eminent thought leader in the field of minimally invasive surgery in the realms of urology and oncology. At the helm of the Minimally Invasive Urology practice of the Department of Urology at Columbia University, Landman has showcased his clinical expertise in laparoscopic renal and prostate surgery as well as in the endoscopic management of urinary tract pathology. Landman is particularly celebrated for his ongoing development of novel techniques to facilitate urologic oncology procedures.

"I am thrilled to join The Doctor's Channel in its quest to enhance the peer-to-peer medical learning experience via easily digestible video segments," said Dr. Landman.

The ease and speed with which physicians can now access critical and accurate medical content and learn from each other will revolutionize the doctor and patient experience -- and I'm proud to be part of that."

Dr. Landman and his partner Mr. Chris Kelly have also recently launched OpNotes (http://www.opnotes.com), a blog featuring informal discussions about new procedures, products, and ideas in the operating room.
