Vote for UF Health Urology, the #1 Academic Urology Program in Florida, in the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Expert Opinion Survey

Dear Fellow Urologists,

I am writing to you today to ask for your support in voting for UF Health Shands Hospital’s urology program in the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Expert Opinion survey. As the chair of the urology department at UF Health, I can attest to our exceptional fellowship-trained faculty and the care and expertise that our team provides to our patients. Additionally, our institution has a distinguished history as a destination for groundbreaking research and innovation.

This past year UF Health Urology:

  • Remained a top-ranked national program based on U.S. News and World Report and consistently the highest-ranked academic urology program in the state of Florida.
  • Held key leadership roles in local, regional, national and international urology societies including the AUA, ABU, Endourological Society, SMSNA, SES-AUA and FUS. Click here to learn more. 
  • Continued to recruit world-class faculty who have helped to expand our full-service clinical offerings including, HoLEP, advanced prostate imaging and focal therapy, male infertility, pediatric and female urology.
  • Continued to broaden our industry and investigator-led clinical trials research, especially in bladder cancer including BCG-refractory disease
  • Dedicated more resources to our researchers and labs who are working on a new and promising bladder cancer target for future immunotherapy strategies.
  • Continued to grow our AI research initiatives across UF Health. With UF now housing one of the fastest supercomputers in academia called HiperGator, we are capitalizing on the use of AI to help predict the histology of small renal masses.

Furthermore, UF Health Urology is committed to providing comprehensive and personalized care to our patients through six unique multidisciplinary care teams. We believe that each patient is unique, and we take the time to understand their individual needs and goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific situation.
