Subsequently, Dr. Canes was recruited to join the staff at the Institute of Urology at Lahey Clinic, where he was the first in New England to perform kidney removal entirely through the belly button, a procedure he helped pioneer with his mentors at Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Canes' primary clinical focus is minimally invasive and robotic surgery for urologic cancers, including prostate, bladder, kidney, ureteral, and adrenal tumors. He also manages complex kidney and ureteral stones, as well as blockages or scar tissue in the urinary tract.
