Offering the Latest Treatment Options
Our surgeons have devised innovative surgical techniques for bladder preservation and for diseases of the prostate.

We diagnose and treat benign inflammatory and infectious disorders, kidney stones, all types of voiding dysfunction and obstruction (including incontinence and reconstruction of the upper and lower urinary tract), male infertility, and impotence. We also treat surgical diseases of the adrenal gland.

A Long History of Excellence
Penn surgeons are at the forefront of urology, offering the latest techniques to evaluate and manage all types of urologic disease. In fact, Penn surgeons carried out the first interstitial radioactive seed treatment for prostate cancer in the Philadelphia region in the mid-1970s.

Today, our surgeons continue to be the field's leaders, presenting their research and techniques in medical conferences around the world.
