The mission of the Ochsner Health Department of Urology is to provide the most comprehensive urologic care possible, emphasizing the needs of the individual patient in a compassionate setting. We strive to deliver excellent urologic services through an integrated, multidisciplinary approach that combines clinical experience, education and research.

At Ochsner Health, we’re leaders in technology, using top of the line equipment to give our patients better outcomes. Our urologists work with a team of physicians trained in many areas to determine the most suitable treatment for your individual needs.

The Urology services at Ochsner provide state-of-the-art medical and surgical care in all aspects of urology including highly sophisticated technologies such as robotic assisted surgery, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy and laser therapies.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive and effective option for prostate ablation with a low occurrence of side effects. This state-of-the-art device targets and destroys a part of the prostate, sparing the rest of the organ and therefore minimizing side effects.
