Dr. Scardino has treated thousands of patients at one of the world's best research hospitals. He developed the innovative erectile-nervegrafting procedure that makes it possible for men with serious cancer to recover sexual function and mathematical tools (nomograms) patients and physicians can use to improve medical decision-making.
