The Department of Urology at Montefiore has both general urologists and specialized physicians who can step in as needed to help diagnose and treat patients with more complex conditions. Patients are able to schedule an appointment with a generalist and, if necessary, get immediate and seamless access to a physician who deals with their specific condition.
Our team has a complement of expertise and offers services in the following areas:
- Male and female general urologic care
- Cancer care
- Male and female sexual problems
- Pelvic floor disorders
- Pediatric urology
- Surgery ranging from minimally invasive to oncologic
Through these services, the Department treats a range of conditions to meet our patients' needs.
Specialized Cancer Care
In collaboration with the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care, our team provides real-time multidisciplinary care to patients. Our physicians hold regular office hours in the Cancer Center, which is centralized in one location. Because of this centralization we are able to provide consultative service for surgical urologic-oncology collaboratively with radiation oncologists and medical oncologists, all in one appointment for the patient.
Services for cancer care include all urologic cancers, with specializations in the following:
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Prostate cancer
The Department of Urology at Montefiore is one of only three hospitals in New York City offering blue light cystoscopy, a unique Food and Drug Administration (FDA) —approved technology used to detect bladder cancer.
The nationally-recognized Division of Urology at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore provides the latest diagnosis and minimally-invasive treatment programs for young patients.
Montefiore also offers minimally-invasive robotic surgery utilizing the da Vinci™ Surgical System.
