Minimally Invasive Treatments

Laparoscopy involves the use of scopes and small instruments through small incisions to perform surgery. At Emory, laparoscopy has evolved to become the preferred method for kidney and adrenal surgery and has broad applications for other types of surgery.

Cancer Treatments

The Department of Urology treats the spectrum of male and female urological conditions, including cancers, using the most advanced cancer treatment therapies available.

Kidney Stone Treatments

Kidney stone treatment includes waiting for a kidney stone to pass on its own without intervention (spontaneous passage). If observation is not indicated or the stone does not pass within 2-3 weeks, then intervention becomes necessary.

Female Urology Treatments

Our Urology physicians have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating female urology disorders. We offer a variety of non-operative therapies and minimally invasive procedures.

Men's Health Treatments

Men face a unique set of health issues that we provide treatments for through the Men's Health program of the Emory Urology Department. Common conditions treated by our Men's Health program include vasectomy and reversal services, erectile dysfunction, enlarged prostate, and elevated PSA.

The Emory Department of Urology is affiliated with The Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Georgia's only National Cancer Institute-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Winship serves as the coordinating center for cancer research and care throughout the Emory University system; with NCI Designation Winship is among the top one percent of all cancer centers in the United States. We give patients improved access to clinical trials and resources that may not be available elsewhere.
