About Kian Asanad, MD

Kian Asanad, MD, is a fellowship-trained men’s health urologist at Keck Medicine of USC specializing in andrology, male infertility and reproductive microsurgery, and is an expert in prosthetic surgery for erectile dysfunction, complex penile reconstruction for Peyronie’s disease and minimally invasive urology. He serves as director of the USC Fertility and Men’s Sexual Health Center in Beverly Hills and is an assistant professor of clinical urology at the Keck School of Medicine.

Dr. Asanad is a Southern California native. He obtained his medical degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, with Alpha Omega Alpha distinction and Gold Humanism Honor Society merit; completed his residency in urology at one of the top-ranked programs at Keck Medicine and Los Angeles General Medical Center; and earned his fellowship in andrology and infertility at Northwestern University under world-renowned men’s sexual health and microsurgery specialists.

Dr. Asanad is committed to making a personal connection with his patients and their partners, ensuring they feel comfortable and secure throughout their course of treatment. He provides treatment for a wide range of male urologic conditions, including erectile dysfunction; penile prosthesis; Peyronie’s disease; no-scalpel, no-needle vasectomy; and minimally invasive, single-incision vasectomy reversal. He is a leading expert in the management of hypogonadism, penile ultrasound and microsurgical treatment of chronic testicular pain. He offers minimally invasive therapy for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and erectile nerve-sparing robotic surgery for prostate cancer.

Dr. Asanad strives to provide men with the best quality of life following prostate surgery, in the same way he strives to provide men the best chance to build a family with their loved ones. He works closely with Keck Medicine’s reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialists at HRC Fertility, an affiliate of Keck Medicine, to provide optimal treatment plans for male subfertility. He is a specialist in advanced sperm-retrieval procedures, including microsurgical testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE). Dr. Asanad also supports cancer survivors at USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center with his extensive experience in prosthetic surgery for restoration of male sexual function and urinary control. He is passionate about optimizing fertility preservation for young men undergoing cancer-related therapy at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. 

His research interests include the development of novel biomarkers to predict reproductive outcomes in men with severe male-factor infertility as well as integration of artificial intelligence in men’s health. He has co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications as well as book chapters on topics such as “Medications with Male Reproductive Side Effects.” He has been invited to lecture on male infertility and men’s urological health concerns and has made a number of media and press appearances in his field of expertise. 

Dr. Asanad was recognized for his dedication to patients with the USC Choi Family Awards for Excellence in Patient-Centered Care and has also received the Outstanding Minimally Invasive Surgery Resident Award from the Society of Laparoscopic & Robotic Surgeons, among others. He is a member of the American Urological Association, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction and the Sexual Medicine Society of North America.

In his free time, Dr. Asanad enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. He is passionate about weight training and running and is an avid snowboarder.

My approach to patient care is highly personalized, as I recognize that men’s reproductive and sexual health is a delicate and sensitive subject. I take pride in caring for couples as a whole, with particular focus on how male-factor infertility impacts a couple’s fertility journey. I truly understand how special it is to help a couple achieve a pregnancy. In my practice, I emphasize the importance of my patients’ quality of life, tailoring treatment plans to meet each patient’s unique goals and needs.
