About Us

One of the First & Most Accomplished Departments of Urology

J. Bentley Squier founded the Columbia University Irving Medical Center Department of Urology in 1917 and, today, it is one of the oldest and most accomplished departments of urology in the nation

The goal of our department is to provide unsurpassed excellence in patient care, research and residency and fellowship training. Together with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, it is ranked by US News and World Report as the number one urology program in New York and the sixth in the Country.  Our faculty is composed of internationally recognized experts in the fields of urologic oncology, benign prostate enlargement (BPH), neurourology/urodynamics (bladder disorders), female urology, pediatric urology, urolithiasis (stone disease), reconstructive surgery, male and female sexual dysfunction, male infertility and robotic/minimally invasive surgery.

Minimally Invasive Approach

Our minimally invasive surgery program—which includes both robotic and laparoscopic surgery—permeates all of the above disciplines and allows us to treat prostate cancer, kidney cancer and many pediatric urology conditions through small cosmetic incisions without compromising cure or outcome. We have extensive experience in robotic prostate surgery—both for malignant and benign disease. Our faculty also specialized in laparoscopic and robotic surgery for kidney tumors, including removal of the entire kidney or only diseased portions when possible.
