He was a member of the founding robotic surgery team at the Vattikuti Urology Institute, which has performed more than 6,000 robotic procedures. During his training, Dr. Bhandari was an integral member of the teams that developed techniques to perform robotic-assisted kidney and pediatric urologic procedures.

Dr. Bhandari is one of the most experienced robotic surgeons in Florida, having performed more than 750 robotic procedures, including radical prostatectomy, nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, radical cystectomy and other complex robotic urologic procedures. He also offers catheter-less robotic prostatectomy, as well as a unique approach to robotic partial nephrectomy that removes cancerous tissue and utilizes warm ischemia to minimize injury to the surrounding kidney. Dr. Bhandari has been invited to demonstrate live surgeries around the world and is the international coordinator for the network of Vattikuti Institutes of Robotic Surgery in India and across the globe. As the international coordinator, he mentors teams at new institutes on a regular basis. His other clinical interests include endourology/kidney stones and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
