Faculty

The Division of Urology's teaching faculty share MMC's mission statement:

  • Excellence in patient care
  • Quality teaching of patient care
  • Research and ways to improve patient care and our understanding of human disease

The urologic faculty at MMC are busy clinical surgeons with a passion for new ideas, technology, and teaching. Both individually and as a group the faculty balances an interest in the broad aspects of urologic care with one or more subspecialty interests including pediatric urology, urologic oncology, voiding dysfunction, and minimally invasive urologic procedures. Our faculty are actively involved in improving both the experience as well as clinical outcomes of urologic care.
