Department of Urology
The Department of Urology at NYU Long Island School of Medicine provides state-of-the-art care to people with genitourinary conditions and trains the next generation of surgeons and scientists in the field. Our experts, with leadership from department chair Aaron E. Katz, MD, are also dedicated to improving patient outcomes through research, working collaboratively to provide the most current therapies and treatments.
Our five-year Urology Residency combines hands-on clinical training, didactics and conferences, and clinical and basic research. Residents train in both adult and pediatric urology. Our mission is to educate physicians so that they are prepared to enter careers in the area of their choosing. The residency program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The goal of our research is to investigate clinical outcomes for patients with urologic and oncologic conditions to understand disease conditions and improve overall quality of life. Members of our urology research group, part of the Department of Urology, partner with attending physicians, residents, statisticians, and other research staff at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island on industry-sponsored clinical trials and investigator-initiated research projects. Investigators have developed research databases for prostate and bladder cancer, as well as minimally invasive treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Our urologists explore all treatment options, including the latest advances in diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, to help patients make the best choices about their care. We believe there is a place for traditional and alternative therapies and take an integrative approach that combines both schools of thought.
We provide treatment for urologic and oncologic conditions including adrenal, bladder, kidney, prostate, and testicular cancer; and incontinence in men and women and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Patients receive consultations and treatments at NYU Langone Urology Associates—Garden City, as well as at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Bethpage, Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, and the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Men’s Health.
