Urology Department

 

 

Our Urology Care Team focuses on providing the best possible care for individuals experiencing such illnesses as prostate cancer, bladder cancer, adrenal cancer, kidney disease and stones, testicular cancer, female and pediatric urological conditions, sexual dysfunction and infertility, urinary tract infections, incontinence, and bladder dysfunction by providing each patient with an individualized plan of care.

In the Department of Urology, we are leaders in clinical research and offer a wide breadth of clinical trials in areas of genitourinary medicine and surgery. The designation of Hollings Cancer Center as a National Cancer Institute site has further increased our access to innovative and life-saving clinical trials in oncology. Our basic science research efforts are backed by the Brockmann Endowed Chair of Urologic Oncology which has allowed us to collaborate with other basic scientists at MUSC. These collaborations have resulted in a vast amount of translational scientific advances. We offer state-of-the-art multidisciplinary oncology care with the most up-to-date resources and treatment options available. Additionally, we have an established minimally invasive oncology surgical program that also includes a fellowship position.

Our Bladder & Pelvic Health program also has a robust research experience supported by the Spaulding Paolozzi Endowed Chair and NIH grant funding, which have allowed us to collaborate within MUSC and with basic scientists at outside institutions. The program has fellowship-trained faculty who have contributed to extensive research in neurourology, male and female voiding dysfunction, pelvic floor disorders, and genitourinary reconstruction. This program is multidisciplinary and includes physicians from both the Urology and Gynecology Departments and includes a highly sought-after fellowship program.

MUSC also has a fellowship-trained pediatric urologist who specializes in pediatric neurogenic and non-neurogenic voiding dysfunction and offers major reconstructive surgery in urological congenital anomalies. The new Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital is a state-of-the-art facility with all pediatric specialties represented.

Our Men’s Health program offers a fellowship-trained infertility and andrology specialist with experience in all aspects of erectile dysfunction treatment, Peyronie’s disease treatment, and management of male infertility, including vasectomy reversals.

Along with our research and clinical missions, the residency program is a cornerstone of our academic mission, and the Urology Department at MUSC continues to promote the highest level of urologic surgical education with a responsive educational leadership team and continuous improvement initiatives based on feedback from both faculty and residents.
