Welcome to the Department of Urology at SIU Medicine. We are a leader in patient care, research and physician education within the field of urology.
Doctors who specialize in this branch of medicine are called urologists and are experts in the management of conditions affecting the male and female urinary tract, including the bladder and kidneys. Urologists also manage conditions affecting the male reproductive organs, including the penis, testes and prostate. Specific conditions we treat include prostate enlargement, testicular cancer, urinary tract infections and kidney stones.
We offer a range of patient services, including state-of-the-art, robotic-assisted surgery. Our providers specialize in areas including sexual health, reproductive medicine, and pediatric urology.
The Division of Urology provides challenging and comprehensive resident and fellowship training programs that offer excellent opportunities for personal and professional growth. Our goal is to train future leaders in urology, whether in academic medicine or private practice. We’re also dedicated to advancing the field of urology through active programs in both basic and clinical research.
