Assistant Professor- Director of Robotic Surgery
Dr. Nix specializes in surgical and non-surgical treatment of prostate cancer. He also specializes in the evaluation and treatment of adrenal lesions.
Having extensive experience in open, laparoscopic, and robotic surgical techniques, Dr. Nix’s surgical approach is based upon individual evaluation of the patient’s tumors and selection of the proper technique for optimal cancer control. While minimally invasive approaches are appropriate for the vast majority of patients, in those for whom they are not Dr. Nix has great comfort level in offering conventional surgical approaches to maximize the likelihood of successful treatment and minimize the risk of complication. He is also one of two urologists at UAB who leads the Program for Personalized Prostate Cancer Care.
Dr. Nix is a graduate of the University of Kentucky School of Medicine. He completed his residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He also completed his Urologic Oncology fellowship at the National Cancer Institute.
