About Us

Laparoscopic_SurgeryThe Division of Urologic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine is a leading center in urologic care, scientific advancement in the understanding and treatment of urologic diseases, and the training of tomorrow’s leaders in urologic surgery.

Our urologists offer a wide range of advanced treatment options for medical conditions of the urogenital tract, including the prostate and testicles in males and the kidneys and bladder in both males and females. They treat patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, which consistently make the U.S. News & World Report Honor Rolls of America’s Best Hospitals and Best Children’s Hospitals, respectively. Their care contributes to the high rankings of urology at both hospitals. They also see patients and offer treatment at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital and other regional medical centers.

Historically, our faculty members have been central players in the development of minimally invasive surgical techniques and prostate cancer screening. Today, this research involves basic science investigations in prostate cancer formation, prostate cancer screening recommendations, pediatric urinary obstruction and many other research topics.

With this broad base of experience, our fellowship-trained faculty offer outstanding training opportunities for urologic residents and help build the future of academic urologic surgery.
