Physician Detail


Appointed as Chief of Pediatric Urology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and Professor of Urology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons New York (Jul 17, 2012)

One of the foremost authorities on pediatric minimally invasive surgeries, Dr. Pasquale Casale has been appointed chief of pediatric urology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital and professor of urology at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr. Casale specializes in pediatric genitourinary reconstructive surgery and minimally invasive surgery, with an emphasis on laparoscopy, robotic surgery and stone disease. He has developed a number of minimally invasive techniques for pediatric patients, including robot-assisted and endoscopic procedures. While researching kidney stone disease in children, Dr. Casale found that some children's kidneys behave differently from each another. The right kidney will have elevated levels of calcium, while the left kidney remains normal. This finding is changing kidney stone disease treatment.

"I want to redirect the pediatric urology program," says Dr. Casale. "I look forward to working with my colleagues at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital as we develop new treatments for children that are effective and safe, with a shorter recovery time."

"Over the past decade, there has been a push for growth in technology and treatment methods for children," says Dr. Mitchell Benson, chairman of urology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. "Dr. Casale is a leader in this specialized field and will help us continue to pioneer procedures and provide the very best care for children."

Previously, Dr. Casale was the director of minimally invasive surgery and robotic surgery, as well as co-director of the surgical simulation and training lab, at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He frequently serves as a lecturer and visiting professor, both nationally and internationally, on advanced laparoscopy and reconstruction, as well as on endourology and robotic surgery for children.

Dr. Casale received his medical degree from The Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York, and did his surgical training at The Beth Israel Medical Center in New York and his urologic training at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. He completed a two-year fellowship in pediatric urology at Seattle Children's Hospital.

Dr. Casale is board certified and is a member of the American College of Surgeons, the American Urological Association and the Society for Pediatric Urology. He also has specialty certification in extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy and robotic-assisted surgery. He holds editorial board positions on many scientific journals and has authored hundreds of articles, editorials and book chapters.
