Comprehensive Urologic Education

The Department of Urology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center mission is dedicated to providing expert medical and surgical care to our adult and pediatric patients. We strive to utilize the latest in surgical techniques to ensure the best outcomes in recovery.

Our residency program trains in the highest teaching standard of patient care and research. All graduating residents are able to pursue careers in academic or private practice in urology. Our Urology clinical team of nurses, schedulers, coordinators and financial staff work together during a patient visit to ensure delivery of most accurate, personal, and efficient care.

The Urology department mission stems from the overall mission of TTUHSC to improve the health of people through excellence in research, education and service.
