Urology/GU Center

Why Choose Us

Grady’s Urology Center excels in diagnosing and treating problems involving male and female urinary tract and male reproductive organs. Our highly trained urologists offer compassionate, customized care in complex and deeply personal situations. The clinical team provides state-of-the-art care for urological cancers, erectile dysfunction, prostate disease, kidney disease, stone disease, male infertility, and male and female urinary issues.

Our doctors, nurses, and other team members annually help thousands of patients – most of them outpatients – manage prostate issues, kidney and bladder stones, urination problems, and other urologic conditions. But, most importantly, they specialize in you and your needs. We provide the best treatment available in Georgia, the support you need, and the help necessary to let you resume your daily routine.

And, because urological conditions are often related to other health issues, Grady offers a unique advantage. We’ve spent more than 125 years building the most comprehensive medical services in Atlanta to deliver the best care possible.
