UCLA Urology ranks number 4 in the country by U.S. News & World Report's "America's Best Hospitals." 

For over 50 years, the urology specialists at UCLA have continued to break new ground and set the standards of care for patients suffering from urological conditions. In collaboration with our eminent research scientists, our internationally acclaimed physicians have pioneered treatments for many conditions, including:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Kidney stones
  • Pelvic floor disorders
  • Genitourinary tract conditions
  • Incontinence
  • Sexual dysfunction in men and in women

Our world-class physicians and researchers work side by side in the quest for new cures and treatments. By teaming with other partners within the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, the UCLA School of Engineering, and private industry, our faculty members are pioneering new methods of delivering care, making it less invasive, more effective and less costly.

We are one of only a handful of programs in the country that offers kidney and pancreas transplantation, as well as treatments for male, female, pediatric and general urologic conditions.

Our strides in developing minimally invasive treatments such as laparoscopy, and our robotics program are revolutionizing the way in which care is delivered. Our fellowship programs for specialists in urology are the models used by many medical schools, and our graduates are now running urology fellowship programs around the globe.
