Samit D. Soni, M.D. is a board-certified, fellowship-trained urologist. He graduated summa cum laude from the Chemical Engineering Honors program at the University of Texas at Austin. He earned his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and completed his urology residency training at Baylor College of Medicine and Houston Methodist Hospital. Subsequently, he went on to complete fellowship training in Minimally Invasive Surgery and Endourology at Baylor College of Medicine.
Prior to joining Memorial Hermann, Dr. Soni served as Assistant Professor of Urology at Baylor College of Medicine for four years, where he educated and trained numerous medical students, residents, and fellows on minimally invasive urologic surgery. He has refined various endoscopic and robotic surgeries and serves as a course instructor for the North American Robotic Urology Symposium (NARUS). Moreover, he serves as a reviewer for the Journal of Urology and has authored numerous scientific papers, surgical training videos, and multiple book chapters, including the core curriculum of the American Urological Association. Dr. Soni also serves as a board member of the Texas Urologic Society.
Dr. Soni sees all patients 16 years old and up for a variety of urologic conditions. He specializes in robotic, laparoscopic, laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS), percutaneous, and endoscopic surgeries for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous conditions of the kidneys, prostate, ureters, bladder, adrenal glands, and testes. He also offers robotic pelvic surgery for conditions such as endometriosis, fistula, ureteral injury, and severely enlarged prostate. He has performed over 1,000 robotic and laparoscopic surgeries to date. Furthermore, he has extensive experience with the surgical management and prevention of kidney stones.
Because every patient’s situation is unique, Dr. Soni uses a personalized approach for each patient’s care, working in partnership with the patient and family to create an individualized treatment plan. He considers himself a strong patient advocate and stresses the importance of clear communication between the physician and patient. “I never want a patient to leave the office without a clear understanding of the problem at hand, and a detailed explanation of how we are going to address the issue. I place strong emphasis on ensuring that I communicate effectively and clearly and answer any lingering questions,” said Dr. Soni.
In his spare time, Dr. Soni enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, chasing his dogs, playing basketball, exercising, outdoor activities, and traveling.
