The Department of Urology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio has a tradition of excellence in research. Our focus is in understanding disease processes to optimize prevention and treatment opportunities. We are unwilling to conduct mainstream research that replicates the work of others or makes small steps forward. It is our goal to have a vision of dramatic improvements in understanding, preventing, and treating disease to substantially improve the quality of health in Urologic Disease.

Our primary foci include Urologic Cancers, Minimally-invasive Surgery, Urinary Incontinence, Female Urology, Sexual Function, Stone Disease, and Pediatric Urology.

Our laboratory efforts include researchers in Genetics, Pathology, Cell Signalling and Molecular Biology, Epidemiology, Prevention, Biostatistics, and Nutrition, just to name a few.
