[VCUSOM Message from the Dean] - chair's Message

From the Chair

“One of the things that excites me the most about VCU Urology is our commitment to cutting-edge laparoscopic and robotic surgery. Using the da Vinci surgical robot, our surgeons are able to perform highly skilled and precise operations through small incisions. We are unique to this region in that we have two board-certified, fellowship-trained robotic surgeons.”
