About us

Urologic disorders include disorders of the urinary, genital and reproductive organs. Our urologists are surgeons who are trained in the medical and surgical correction of disorders of the adrenal gland, kidney, ureter, bladder, urethra, prostate, testes, penis and scrotum, as well as a variety of inflammatory conditions and malformations.

Minimally invasive surgery

We also offer many minimally invasive techniques that result in less trauma. By performing surgical procedures robotically, through a single port, or through small keyhole incisions, we have been able to correct many urological issues with much quicker recovery times than standard operating procedures. Some of our minimally invasive techniques include partial kidney surgery and robotic prostatectomy.

Our services

Exceptional care is offered in areas including:

General urology

  • Kidney disease (kidney stones)
  • Prostate disease (enlarged prostate)—now offering GreenLight™ Laser Therapy for appropriate candidates
  • Bladder disease (bladder stones, voiding dysfunction, urgency, frequency urinating, incontinence)
  • Vasectomy

Uro-oncology

Our surgeons are now using the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System for appropriate candidates. The da Vinci robot enables surgeons to do minimally invasive procedures with smaller incisions, resulting in less bleeding and pain for the patient, shorter recovery times and fewer postoperative complications, such as incontinence and impotence.
