A new study, not affiliated with Cleveland Clinic, finds that Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine produced the highest percentage of medical students who elected to enter urology and match into the field over a five-year-period (2016-2021). Residency Program Director Steven Campbell, MD, PhD, comments.
From developing new ways to screen for and treat genitourinary cancers to leveraging robotic and artificial intelligence platforms — our experts are transforming how urologic conditions are diagnosed and treated.
Is there a role for partial nephrectomy in the treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma? Cleveland Clinic physicians say improvements in clinical outcomes are enabling novel treatment approaches, including partial nephrectomy, in select patient.
Urology and nephrology, both traditionally male-dominated specialties, are attracting more women. Crystal Gadegbeku, MD, Chair of Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Kidney Medicine, comments on the importance of diversity in medicine.

Cleveland Clinic researchers conducted the most robust study to date on whether measuring contact surface area between the tumor and the normal parenchyma could predict functional outcomes for patient undergoing partial nephrectomy
Cleveland Clinic researchers recently published a study showing that there is heterogeneity in the survival rates of renal cancer surgery patients who develop CKD primarily due to the removal of nephrons.
After partial nephrectomy, urologists find there’s still much follow-up work to do — from monitoring kidney function to cancer surveillance. What are the best methods for both?
Urologic surgeons are using robot-assisted systems in increasingly complex cases due to the equipment’s pinpoint control, high magnification and minimal invasiveness.
