Diagnosis & Treatment

Whether you are facing a possible cancer diagnosis or seeking treatment for a different urologic condition, you can rest assured that you will be treated by an experienced surgical team. The Division of Urology diagnoses and treats a full range of adult and pediatric urologic disorders and performs the area’s largest volume of robotic urologic surgeries. We also host the area’s largest number of cryotherapy procedures—a technique used to freeze and destroy tissue—to treat both kidney and prostate cancer.

We collaborate with the Lipson Cancer Institute to provide patients with prostate cancer and cancers of the urinary tract with comprehensive cancer care and the expertise of numerous physicians, oncologists and specialists.  

If your treatment requires surgery, we use minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedures and da Vinci® robotic surgery whenever possible to reduce your risk, shorten your recovery time, and ensure you receive the best possible outcome.
