A Message from Jack Mydlo, MD
Chairperson, Department of Urology
Program Director, Urology Residency Program
The Department of Urology at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine has expertise in dealing with 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 and enlarged prostates.
All of our clinical faculty are fellowship trained. We also have two full-time PhD faculty who do research on bladder function and neuro-urology.
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 27, and our residents are trained in every facet of urology, including oncology, robotics, laparoscopy, female urology, stone disease, laser surgery, infertility, neuro-urology, and transplantation.
Our residents are accepted to some of the finest fellowships in the country, including Hospital of Pennsylvania, Duke University and Mayo 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 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 and 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.
Jack Mydlo, MD
