Division Overview

Surgical Urology clinic

The mission of the VCU Division of Urology is to provide culturally competent care in an efficient and timely manner, as well as to educate patients and those within their support system in order to maintain and promote their well-being.

Our faculty represent the best and brightest from multiple subspecialties within urology.  All of our faculty are board certified from the American Board of Urology and represent subspecialty interests including oncology, pediatrics, female and neurourology, and minimally-invasive surgery.  Many of our faculty are also directly involved with the pursuit of state-of-the-art scientific research.  Our research has been published in numerous peer-reviewed publications.

Education
The Urology Residency Program at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Medical Center is a five-year (PGY-1 surgery internship plus PGY 2-5 of urology residency) teaching program that encompasses all phases of adult and pediatric urology, leading to American Board of Urology certification eligibility.

Research
Members of the faculty of the Division of Urology are actively involved in clinical and basic science research projects. In addition, we work directly with two laboratories investigating bladder smooth muscle physiology and urologic tissue engineering. Learn more

Surgical Expertise
Our surgeons provide subspecialty expertise in the areas of urologic cancer, incontinence and voiding dysfunction, minimally invasive urology, robotic surgery, urinary stone disease, erectile dysfunction, pediatric urology, and urologic trauma. In 2008, the division played an instrumental role in VCU Medical Center acquiring the da Vinci Surgical System, which enables us to offer a vast array of minimally invasive and robotic procedures to treat patients. The division also has the most up-to-date equipment for performing video urodynamic procedures and biofeedback.

The Urologic Tumor Center, partnering with the VCU Massey Cancer Center and the departments of Hematology-Oncology and Radiation Oncology, provides a multi-disciplinary approach for patients with urologic cancer. The division provides care for the VCU Medical Center and the Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center.
