Problems with your urinary tract, reproductive system or genitals are often both physically and emotionally difficult. Urologists at Rush offer compassionate, individualized care for these complex and deeply personal conditions.
Our expert team specializes in the full range of urologic conditions, including urologic cancers (e.g., prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer), urinary tract infections, urinary tract stones (e.g., kidney stones), congenital urologic conditions, erectile dysfunction and female urologic and pelvic conditions.
They are dedicated to providing personalized care, while also focusing on your quality of life and preserving your urinary and sexual function — which are often affected by urologic conditions.
As one of the top-ranked academic medical centers in the country, Rush offers the most advanced treatments, including immunotherapies, minimally invasive procedures and robotic surgery. You may also have access to clinical trials that are looking into novel approaches to treating urologic disorders.
Excellence in Urology Care
A highly specialized team
Our urology team specializes in the full range of urologic conditions, along with the most advanced diagnostic tests, medical therapies and surgical interventions for treating urologic conditions. Our team specializes in the most advanced care for bladder cancer, bladder reconstruction, male functional reconstruction (e.g., penile prostheses) and male and female urinary incontinence.
Minimally invasive surgical expertise
Our urologists are some of the country’s leading laparoscopic and robotic surgeons. The majority of surgeries we perform are minimally invasive procedures — including robotic cystectomy and urinary diversion for bladder care. Patients who undergo minimally invasive procedures typically have shorter hospital stays, less pain and faster recovery compared to traditional open surgeries. Our team performs minimally invasive procedures all of our system hospitals — Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora and Rush Oak Park Hospital in Oak Park.
Multidisciplinary care for urologic cancers
If you have a urologic cancer, including prostate cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer or testicular cancer, you will have a multidisciplinary care team — including urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgical oncologists — who work with you and each other to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Our urologic cancer team is at the leading edge of cancer care, specializing in immunotherapies and minimally invasive surgical treatments such as robotic cystectomy and urinary diversion for bladder cancer. They also work closely with Tempus — a biotechnology company that analyzes your specific genetic and clinical data to provide information about how your cancer may respond to targeted treatments. This allows your care team to tailor your treatment to find the most effective option for treating your specific cancer.
