Matthew Cooperberg, MD

Genitourinary oncologist

Dr. Matthew Cooperberg is a genitourinary cancer specialist at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. He specializes in the diagnosis and management of genitourinary cancer, and using minimally invasive techniques to treat benign and malignant diseases. Cooperberg, who is interested in new technologies, performs robotic, laparoscopic, endoscopic and percutaneous surgeries. He developed a new prostate cancer risk assessment tool called the Cancer of the Prostate Risk Assessment (UCSF-CAPRA) score.

Cooperberg earned a medical degree and master's of public health at Yale University. He then completed training in general surgery and urology at UCSF, followed by a urologic oncology fellowship under the guidance of Dr. Peter Carroll. Cooperberg is a candidate member of the American Urological Association (AUA), Western Section of the AUA and the American College of Surgeons. He has written over 50 peer-reviewed scientific articles, nine chapters and has lectured nationally and internationally about malignant and benign urologic disease, with a particular focus on prostate cancer.
