Matthew Grimes, MD


Matthew Grimes, MD, is a UW Health reconstructive urologist. As a surgeon, Dr. Grimes works to help patients regain lost urinary and genital function after injuries or cancer treatment. He diagnoses and treats incontinence (urine leakage), erectile dysfunction, scarring that restricts urinary flow, and other damage to the lower urinary tract. He also provides gender-affirming care and treats related issues.

During the initial office visit, Dr. Grimes listens closely to his patients' concerns. He offers education about their condition and tailors a treatment plan to address their unique issues.  

His goal is to help patients overcome their medical problems, no matter how challenging, so they can enjoy a better life after treatment.

In addition to patient care, Dr. Grimes serves as an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in the Department of Urology. He conducts research involving new minimally invasive surgery techniques and non-surgical treatments.

When not caring for patients, Dr. Grimes enjoys playing musical instruments, mountain biking and skiing.

The most rewarding part of patient care is helping people through some of the toughest times in their lives.
