Learn more about how we treat genitourinary cancers

UW Health Urology has collaborated successfully with the UW Carbone Cancer Center - Wisconsin's only comprehensive cancer center as designated by the National Cancer Institute - for more than 25 years. In addition to countless research trials and laboratory investigations, we provide comprehensive surgical management for all patients with prostate, kidney, bladder and testicular cancer, and other malignancies of the genitourinary tract.


UW Health Urology has a strong national reputation for clinical care in all urologic cancers, as well as a longstanding history in investigative science, research and clinical trials in the major urologic cancers and urologic oncology. Members of the department work together and with other departments as a team toward the same goal: curing urologic disease.
