About the Division of Urology

The Division of Urology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) has set the standard for international excellence in urologic care, providing advanced care and performing thousands of life-changing procedures and surgeries each year, while developing ground-breaking scientific research.

Under the direction of Adam S. Kibel, MD, our board-certified urologists deliver comprehensive and personalized attention to men and women with a range of genitourinary problems: from prostate and bladder disorders to male sexual health concerns, urinary infections, incontinence, stone disease and anatomic abnormalities.

We work in partnership with BWH specialists, referring physicians, patients and their caregivers to diagnose and treat the most challenging urologic conditions. As the surgical oncologists for Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center, our urologic surgeons collaborate with the world's best cancer experts to give patients a powerful, united force in the fight against urologic cancer.

In addition to their advanced training and research in specialty areas, our urologic surgeons are highly skilled in new technologies such as robotic-assisted surgery, minimally invasive approaches that reduce side-effects and maximize outcomes.
