A native of Los Angeles, California, Dr. Michael Cher graduated from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. He then completed his internship in general surgery and residency in urology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. He went on to complete a fellowship in urologic oncology at the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine.

Dr. Cher is a board certified urologist/surgeon-scientist with significant experience in pre-clinical and clinical research. His commitment to cancer research is centered on studying the biology of bone metastasis, a topic which he has pursued for many years. He has received numerous research grants and awards for his leadership and research in urology.

With the help of robotic-assisted and image-guided technology, Dr. Cher specializes in minimally invasive treatments for his patients. Through these advanced methods, Dr. Cher is able to perform cancer removal or destruction with quick recovery, limited damage to normal tissues and few side effects. He also specializes in all aspects of urologic oncology including cancer of the adrenal gland, kidney cancer, ureteral cancer, bladder cancer, urethral cancer, testis cancer and penile cancer. 

Dr. Cher works together with colleagues in medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiology, and pathology to deliver state-of-the-art multidisciplinary cancer care.  He also believes in providing individualized cancer treatments to all patients. When it comes to making treatment decisions, he works with the patient to take into account not only the disease stage and tumor grade, but also factors such as overall patient health, and the advantages and disadvantages of all available treatment options. He offers state-of-the-art treatments for various cancers and feels it is critical to involve the patient in the decision-making process in order to minimize side effects and maximize treatment success.

Outside of his medical work, Dr. Cher enjoys spending time with his family, biking and playing tennis. He also is an accomplished musician, serving as principal clarinetist, board member and faculty advisor of the Detroit Medical Orchestra. Dr. Cher and his wife Lisa reside in Huntington Woods with their two children. They are active in their synagogue and the greater Detroit Jewish community.
