NRMC Welcomes Urologist and Cancer Specialist Dr. Erik Castle

Natchitoches Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce Urologist Dr. Erik Castle has joined Dr. Kenneth Perego at NRMC Urology Associates and is now a member of the health system’s active medical staff.

Dr. Castle sees patients at the clinic and performs surgeries at NRMC. He diagnoses and treats both male and female patients for urinary symptoms, urinary retention, kidney stones, urinary incontinence, cancers, and other diseases affecting the urinary tract. He also sees male patients for conditions affecting the male reproductive system including the testes, penis, scrotum, prostate, vas deferens and urethra.

Dr. Castle is a cancer specialist with vast expertise in diagnosing and treating kidney, adrenal, ureter, and bladder cancers. Specific to men, he diagnoses and treats prostate cancer and testicular cancer as well as tumors in the scrotum, penis, and retroperitoneal lymph nodes.

Dr. Castle completed post-residency fellowship training at Mayo Clinic and was one of the first urologists in the nation to perform robot-assisted radical cystectomy in 2005. He perfected reconstructive surgery techniques to create neobladders to replace patients’ cancerous bladders. In 2008, he began performing highly complex Robot-Assisted Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection to remove cancerous retroperitoneal lymph nodes caused by testicular cancer.

“As we continue to grow our services at NRMC, we have focused on recruiting specialists. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Castle who is a leading expert in diagnosing and treating cancer and is a highly experienced robotic surgeon,” noted Kirk Soileau, Chief Executive Officer of NRMC. “From biopsies to cryosurgery, robotic-assisted surgery, and complex reconstructive surgeries, Dr. Castle is a leader in the field of urology. His expertise includes performing minimally invasive radical cystectomy to remove the bladder, nephrectomy to remove a kidney, prostatectomy to remove the prostate, and adrenalectomy to remove the adrenal gland. We appreciate the outstanding care and services he and Dr. Perego provide here in Natchitoches.”

Dr. Castle has authored hundreds of publications in the field of Urology and Urological Surgery as well as served on various national and international urological committees including the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines panel for the Early Detection of Prostate Cancer. Dr. Castle is a member of the American Association of Clinical Urologists, American College of Surgeons, American Urological Association, and Endourological Society.
