Urology Academic Practice
The Urology Academic Practice offers comprehensive management for adult and pediatric urologic conditions. The practice provides complete care, beginning with diagnosis all the way to treatment and follow up, with thorough continuity of care.
The Urology Academic Practice is one of the premiere centers using minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat diseases of the urinary tract. Compared to open surgery, minimally invasive surgery may require only a few small incisions or none at all. If your physician determines that you are an appropriate candidate for minimally invasive urologic surgery, this means you may have less pain, faster recovery and fewer complications than with open surgery.
The Urology Academic Practice at Cedars-Sinai focuses on patient care, research, teaching and the latest treatments for complex cases. Our team approach fosters collaborative research between scientists and clinicians with the goal of making innovative discoveries available to all of our patients with challenging urological disorders.
The Urology Academic Practice team openly communicates with the referring physician to determine the best course of treatment for each patient, keeping the referring physician apprised of the patient’s condition. At a mutually agreed upon and appropriate time, the patient's care is transferred back to the referring physician for continued management, while the team's physicians remain available for consultation on the care and management of patients.
In the 2012-13 U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals issue, Cedars-Sinai once again ranked among America's best in Urology.
