Columbia University Department of Urology is an integral part of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, one of the nation's leading academic medical centers, and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, one of the country's most respected medical schools and research institutions.
Our Department's goals are threefold:
- to offer unsurpassed excellence in patient care,
- to conduct cutting edge research across the spectrum of urologic disorders, and
- to train the next generation of urologists to provide patients with the best possible care.
Experts in Their Fields
Members of our faculty are nationally and internationally recognized experts in the fields of urologic cancers, benign prostate enlargement, bladder disorders, female urology, pediatric urology, urinary stone disease, reconstructive surgery, male sexual dysfunction and infertility. All of our doctors conduct research in their specialty areas, and are expert in current research efforts and the latest and most effective treatment advances.
Urologists in our department collaborate closely with each other and with other specialists at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to provide patients with the best multidisciplinary care.
Minimally Invasive Approaches
Whenever possible, we treat patients using a minimally invasive approach, and our minimally invasive surgery program permeates all of our subspecialties. We treat prostate, kidney, bladder cancer, many pediatric urology conditions, and other urologic disorders through small cosmetic incisions, without compromising the patient's outcome.
