Learn More About Ochsner Pediatric Urology

A urologic oncologist is a doctor who specializes in cancer in the parts of the body that help us pee, as well as cancers in the reproductive parts of men and women. This includes cancers in the kidneys, bladder, prostate, testes, and genital areas. At Ochsner, our team that looks after cancer in the urinary and reproductive systems is leading the way in doing tough surgeries in smarter ways. We try to use methods that save as much of the body’s normal functions as possible. This means we work hard to make sure patients can still do things like go to the bathroom normally, and for adults, keep important parts of their personal and family life after surgery. Our goal is to help patients fight cancer by using smart and careful methods, showing we're leaders in helping people stay healthy and overcome tough challenges.
