The department makes substantial contributions to research and education in urology, ensuring that patients have access to cutting-edge methodologies and the latest clinical findings.Our urologists have developed clinical expertise in one or more sub-specialties to provide comprehensive treatment of the most complex urological problems which can include:
- Urologic oncology, including cancer of the bladder, prostate, testis, kidney, and penis
- Kidney stone prevention and treatment, including extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), nutrition counseling and medical management
- Neuro and female urology, providing care for voiding dysfunction, incontinence, female urologic problems, and urinary tract difficulties related to neurologic diseases
- Treatment of male infertility, addressed with microsurgical and minimally-invasive techniques for conditions such as varicoceles, obstruction of the vas deferens or epididymis, and dysfunction of sperm maturation
Our urologists use laparoscopic techniques, decreasing the usual lengths of stay associated with traditional surgery.
