Patients come to us from throughout the Midwest because of our nationally renowned surgical expertise and innovations. Not only do we provide specialists in every area of urology, but our proficiency in treating urologic conditions runs the gamut. From Retzius sparing robotic prostatectomy to female urologic issues to proton therapy for urologic cancers, we deliver complex care tailored to your particular needs.
We have the only fellowship-trained urologic surgeons in the Kansas City metro using robotics for prostate, bladder and kidney cancer surgery. We have performed more urologic robotic surgeries than any other hospital in Kansas and throughout our region – spanning a distance of more than 500 miles from Kansas City.
Nationally recognized urologic cancer care
Working with our National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, 1 of 71 nationwide, we provide comprehensive prostate cancer care and treatment, including proton therapy. Proton therapy is one of the latest advances in prostate cancer treatment. Proton therapy precisely targets prostate tumors and reduces unnecessary radiation dose to the surrounding healthy tissue compared to traditional X-ray or photon radiation. Our powerhouse team of proton experts provides this highly specialized, state-of-the-art form of radiation treatment.
We have specialists in male infertility, microsurgery and men’s sexual health and treat a range of conditions affecting men, including: benign prostatic hyperplasia, elevated PSA, impotence, prostate cancer screening and prevention and urinary incontinence.
Our endoscopy specialist performs minimally invasive and noninvasive techniques to manage kidney stones and other urinary tract stones. In addition, we have the region’s only fellowship-trained specialist who performs reconstruction for people who have experienced urinary tract injury or trauma.
Urologic care for women
It’s not only men who have urologic issues as we care for women too. We treat female incontinence and female urologic issues, including bladder and kidney cancers. Our fellowship-trained specialists are also experienced in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, such as urethral stricture disease, an uncommon diagnosis in women, which occurs when scar tissue forms in the urethra and prevents the normal flow of urine.
In addition, we specialize in urologic diseases of the elderly and provide rapid access for common urgent urologic conditions, including cancer, telehealth cancer second opinion, kidney stones and more. Our multispecialty care teams include subspecialized providers in imaging, pathology, medical oncology and radiation oncology, among others.
Advancing treatment through research
Another way we impact our patients’ lives is through our leading-edge research. Our researchers are influencing advances in the prevention, early detection and treatment of urologic disease for men and women – with the overarching goal to develop more innovative approaches to treatment that improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
Our foremost objective is that you receive the most advanced and personalized care specific to your needs, so we explore all therapeutic options together with you. This includes conventional treatments and complementary medical therapy, as well as emerging therapies, such as complex microsurgery, advanced laparoscopy with robotics, lasers and nerve stimulation (neuromodulation), and access to clinical trials and promising drug discoveries.
