Division of Urology
The University of Maryland's Division of Urology is comprised of physicians with advanced surgical skills who have access to technology available at only a handful of medical centers in the country. We offer state-of-the-art care for patients in need of traditional and advanced procedures for all conditions of the urinary tract. Against the backdrop of patient care and research, all graduating residents are superbly trained and able to pursue careers in academic urology. Surgeon-scientists perform cutting-edge research on pertinent urologic problems and focus on translational research to bring potential solutions to problems facing clinical urologists. Faculty are engaged in multiple extramurally funded clinical trials which bring science into the clinical arena.
