As an oncological urologist, Dr. Liu specializes in the surgical treatment of urinary tumors, especially in robotic and minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries, as well as the comprehensive treatment of bladder cancer and testicular cancer, and the surgical treatment of children's tumors. He is one of the first surgeons in China to carry out robot-assisted/laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for testicular cancer and ultra-expanded lymph node dissection for bladder cancer. He has been awarded the Outstanding Contribution Award for the Highest Volume of 3-4 level difficulty Surgeries as the chief professor of Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center. He has undertaken more than 10 research projects with funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the Guangdong Natural Science Foundation, and published more than 40 articles as the first author (corresponding author), participated in editing six academic works, and served as the deputy chief editor of Bladder Cancer.
