Physicians and scientists at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center Department of Urology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital conduct research through Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, one of the Hospital's affiliated medical schools.
This work includes clinical trials as well as basic science or laboratory research on a range of novel and promising treatments for urologic disorders. With both types of research, the work often takes place in collaboration with other departments at the Hospital or College. It is also common that physicians and scientists in our department collaborate with peers at other institutions as well.
Physicians at Columbia Urology are also faculty members at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons where they conduct research, including clinical trials, in their medical specialty.
Columbia Urology physicians conduct clinical trials on a range of novel and promising treatments for urologic disorders, and often conduct research collaboratively with each other and with other departments, as part of our comprehensive and integrated research program.
Our clinical studies have already advanced our understanding and treatment of a broad range of urologic disorders. Through clinical trials physicians in our department helped develop the tools and techniques now widely used for robotic prostatectomy and minimally invasive partial nephrectomy, new treatments for kidney cancer, and through our holistic urology program we are testing herbal and naturopathic treatments for a number or urologic problems.
Clinical trials at Columbia Urology offer patients with urologic disorders throughout the New York area and beyond access to cutting edge treatments at a world-renowned treatment facility.
