The clinical staff of the department also includes many urologists identified as Best Doctors in Milwaukee and Best Doctors in America.
Our adult specialties include: benign and malignant diseases of the prostate, female urology and incontinence, voiding dysfunction, reconstructive urology, sexual dysfunction, infertility, stone disease, minimally invasive surgical approaches to urologic disease, and urologic cancer care.
Specialists in the Pediatric section have focused their practice exclusively in the care of children. Their areas of individual expertise include: congenital abnormality of the urinary tract, voiding dysfunction and neurogenic bladder, and minimally invasive/laparoscopic approaches to pediatric issues.
The Department's teaching and research activities are designed to both complement and support our clinical service mission. Our ACGME accredited residency program ensures that future generations will have access to qualified urologic specialists. Continuing medical education activities are designed to keep practicing community Urologists informed of the latest advances in urologic patient care.
Finally, our research program encompassing both clinical and basic research takes a disease focused, translational, approach to our research activities. The clinical research program is designed to afford patients in Southeastern Wisconsin access to experimental therapies otherwise not available in their community. Basic research activities are designed to provide newer and more effective approaches to disease management for patients with urologic problems.
In summary, the Department of Urology at the Medical College of Wisconsin represents a unique resource for Southeastern Wisconsin. State of the Art clinical care, coupled with medical education and research, provide both patients and physicians access to world class urologic care.
