Dr.  Poch's research interests include health-related quality of life outcomes after oncologic surgery and assessments of modifiable risk factors to improve perioperative outcomes. Current research projects include an assessment of self- reported cigarette smoking with biochemical validation in the bladder cancer population and an evaluation of compounding effect of surgical complications. His clinical interests include bladder, kidney, and prostate cancer with an emphasis on surgical robotics.  He is a reviewer for numerous professional journals, and is published in many peer reviewed journals and has authored many book chapters on urologic oncology and robotics.
