University of Florida Department of Urology

our providers recognize that every
patient is unique and no two patients are alike and in many cases we’ve
established relationships with these urologic patients just as we have with
our own loved ones many of our patients are patients that require chronic care
multiple visits and so with that we have a longitudinal experience with these
patients seeing as they grow older and have unique your urologic problems over
time we are entering a new age in cancer care
medical and surgical treatments for your urologic cancers are rapidly advancing and
becoming more personalized the key to personalized cancer care is matching the
right treatment with the right patient there is no more one-size-fits-all in
cancer care our team of fellowship trained urologic surgeons offers
multiple surgical options and approaches depending upon each individual’s needs
including open laparoscopic percutaneous and robotic treatments we have one of
the largest clinical programs or kidney stone management in the southeast our
expert surgeons use minimally invasive tools to navigate the urinary tract in a
minimally invasive manner either with no incision or sometimes small incisions to
identify the stone fragment the stone with either ultrasonic or laser devices
and extracting stones thus reducing patient discomfort and expediting the
recovery regarding robotic and laparoscopic surgery this really has
expanded rapidly in our field and where robotic surgery usually was only
