About Vincent G Bird

My name is Vincent Bird, MD, and I serve as the chief of the UF Division of Minimally Invasive Surgery and as the co-director of the Urology Endourology/Minimally Invasive Surgery Fellowship Program.

I attended medical school at the State University of New York in Stony Brook, where I received my medical degree with distinction in research and was awarded for my work involving cellular processes related to cancer and inflammation. Following medical school, I completed two residencies in general surgery and urology at the University of Miami. Then, I completed a fellowship in endourology and laparoscopic surgery at the University of Iowa, where I was awarded a clinical science award by the Endourological Society for research relating to patterns of treatment for urinary stone disease. I joined the UF faculty after eight years at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

My clinical interests focus on renal surgery for urinary stone disease, treatment of kidney stones, and ureteral stones, urolithiasis, metabolic stone evaluation and prevention of kidney stones. My research interests focus on the treatment of a variety of renal conditions. I am interested in newly developing imaging technologies and how these technologies and related techniques can be used to diagnose urinary stone disease and other kidney pathologies in new, noninvasive ways.

As a physician, my goal is to improve the quality of life and health of patients with kidney stones through use of a comprehensive and multidisciplinary care model that includes use of new-and-improved medical and surgical technologies.

During my free time, I enjoy running and exercising with my family, hiking, camping, going to chess tournaments and traveling with my family.
