Urology

Charles Brendler, MD

As part of the Department of Surgery, the Section of Urology provides treatment of a wide variety of urinary tract disorders in men and women. Our philosophy is to develop and use innovative and comprehensive treatments that safeguard the patient's quality of life by preserving normal urinary and sexual function. Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive treatment methods, including robotic surgery. In fact, our team has performed more robotic urologic surgery procedures than any other program in Illinois, and is among the top 10 programs in the world.

We collaborate with other University of Chicago specialists in oncology, nephrology and gynecology to provide the patient with a personalized, comprehensive approach.
