A Message from Jack Mydlo, MD, MBA, FACS
Professor and Chairperson, Department of Urology
Associate Program Director, Urology Residency Program
The Department of Urology at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine has expertise in dealing with both benign conditions as well as cancers of the bladder, kidney, prostate, and genitalia. In addition, we treat erectile dysfunction, kidney stones, voiding dysfunction, stress urinary incontinence, stricture disease, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, interstitial cystitis, prostatitis, neurogenic bladder, infertility and pediatric urology. We also have extensive exposure to urologic trauma, both penetrating and blunt, as well as reconstructive urology with transgender reassignment. We have a robust robotics program, and residents are exposed to open urologic cases as well.
Our residency program consists of four institutions:
- Temple University Hospital
- Fox Chase Cancer Center
- Abington Memorial Hospital
- St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children
We have a combined faculty of 29, mostly all of whom as fellowship trained in some of the finest programs in the country: Johns Hopkins, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Baylor, Children’s Hospital of Cincinnati, and Cornell.
Our residents are accepted to some of the finest fellowships in the country, including Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Duke University, Mayo Clinic, UTSW, MD Andersen Cancer Center, University of Oklahoma, and the Cleveland Clinic. We also graduate residents who are offered private practice positions with very prestigious groups.
As a clinical department, our goal is to provide the best urological health care possible and to educate our residents and our patients on how to maintain that care. As a residency program, our goal is to make sure that each resident has excellent training in the art and science of urology, so that they are very competitive out in the academic world as well as the private practice market.
We are proud of our department and our residency program, and are looking to expand and improve each year into something even better.
