The Department of Urology works to integrate front-line research with high-quality clinical care. This dynamic combination allows for unprecedented access to urological care in the Central Valley
Urology is a surgical specialty that is concerned with the urinary tract of both men and women and the reproductive system of men.
Also known as genitourinary surgery, Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the surgical and medical diseases of the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive organs. University urologists perform hundreds of minimally invasive operations each year for a variety of urologic problems. These minimally invasive surgical procedures produce excellent results, and patients often have shorter hospital stays, less discomfort and bleeding, and a shorter recovery period. Two types of minimally invasive surgery that our urologists are well known for are kidney operations and endoscopic procedures used to diagnose and treat upper urinary tract disorders.
The department of urology is committed to offering the highest quality urologic care in the central valley. University physicians are leaders in clinical research that enhances the capability to offer the most advanced treatments available.
Our providers have created an environment that encourages mastery of the foundations of urology, original thought, a passion for research, and a humanistic spirit towards medicine and urology. The department is a cohesive team and as apart of University Centers of Excellence, our physicians are all committed to providing exceptional, personalized patient care.
The Department of Urology provides comprehensive services for the treatment of a full range of urological problems.
