Biography


Geoffrey Sonn, MD is a board certified urologist who specializes in treating patients with prostate and kidney cancer. He has a particular interest in cancer imaging, MRI-Ultrasound fusion targeted prostate biopsy, prostate cancer focal therapy, and robotic surgery for prostate and kidney cancer. He was the Stanford principal investigator of a major clinical trial using MRI-guided focused ultrasound to treat prostate cancer. The goal of this trial was to treat prostate cancer with fewer side effects than surgery or radiation.

Dr. Sonn was born in Washington State and lived there until leaving for college at Georgetown in Washington DC. After graduating magna cum laude at Georgetown he returned to the West Coast for medical school at UCLA. Following medical school, Dr. Sonn completed a 6-year urology residency at Stanford where he developed particular interests in the clinical care of patients with urologic cancers and research in cancer imaging. He then spent two years at UCLA as a urologic oncology fellow where he devoted all his time to gaining additional skills and experience in clinical care and research in urologic malignancies. Since finishing his fellowship, Dr. Sonn has been at Stanford where he applies the skills he gained in residency and fellowship to provide high-quality clinical care to patients with urologic cancers. Dr. Sonn also continues to work to develop new methods to better diagnose and treat urologic cancers through research. His primary research focus is in prostate cancer focal therapy and developing artificial intelligence methods to improve prostate cancer detection on MRI and ultrasound.
