Christopher R. Mitchell, M.D.

Urology Surgeon, Partner of Brandywine Urology Consultants

Dr. Mitchell is Christiana Care’s Director of Robotic Surgery at the Helen F. Graham Cancer & Research Institute.  Dr. Mitchell is a physician partner at Brandywine Urology Consultants.  Dr. Mitchell brings expertise in some of the most advanced and complex minimally invasive robotic surgical techniques in the field of urology to Delaware.

Dr. Mitchell specializes in minimally invasive robotic surgery to treat benign and malignant diseases of the genitourinary tract; including partial nephrectomy for kidney tumors, nerve sparing prostatectomy for prostate cancer and complex ureteral reconstruction.  Dr. Mitchell is pleased to bring Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HOLEP) procedure to Christiana Care; making this area one of the few locations in the country to offer this new state of the art urological procedure.  This new procedure is shown to be highly effective in treating enlarged prostate or BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia), a non-cancerous that affects most men as they age.

Dr. Mitchell graduated from Villanova University in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology.  He earned his Medical Degree from the University of Maryland in 2008 where he was the proud recipient of the Gold Medal Award presented to only one graduate with outstanding scholarly accomplishments.  He completed a one year General Surgery internship and his residency training in urology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.  Dr. Mitchell then completed an extensive two year fellowship in laparoscopy/endourology at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dr. Mitchell’s research focuses on developing new robotic procedures and technology to improve surgery for benign prostate conditions.  He has presented seminars both nationally and internationally on the topics of kidney cancer, prostate cancer, BPH and stone disease.  Dr. Mitchell’s work has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals including the Journal of urology, the Journal of Endourology and BJU International.
