The Section of Urology's world-class team includes highly skilled and experienced surgical faculty members and outstanding research faculty members.
We are now the leading institution in Illinois in minimally invasive management of urological cancer and benign urologic disease. We offer national expertise in urological cancer, laparoscopic urological surgery, prostate disease, female urology, reconstructive surgery and pediatric urology. Our team offers a unique concept in which each of us focuses on a narrow aspect of our field. This allows superior specialization in different urological diseases providing unparalleled personal experience and expertise for our patients.
We are also dedicated to discovery. The major focus and effort of our laboratories is to identify genes which regulate the spread of cancer cells, develop better and less invasive treatments for patients with urologic cancer, identify nutritional and environmental factors that may promote or prevent cancer as well as understand the interactions of the urinary bladder with the nervous system.
Every year we have two residents graduate our urology residency program, one fellow graduate our minimally invasive fellowship program and one post doctoral basic science graduate. Most of our graduates choose to pursue academic and leadership careers.
The mission of the Section of Urology is
- to provide the best available, cutting-edge approach while offering compassionate care to our patients with urological disease
- to generate new medical knowledge and discoveries in the laboratory and through clinical research
- to educate the next generation of leaders in the art and science of urology
We seek to achieve these goals through a graceful, collegial team approach, fulfilling our legacy at the forefront of medicine.
