Founded in 1887, the Department of Urology at Indiana University School of Medicine is one of the oldest and most trusted urology departments in the country with world-renowned clinicians, educators and researchers in the areas of testis cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, pediatric urology and stone disease as well as other urologic subspecialties. The department is most well-known for its contributions to testicular cancer, urinary tract reconstruction, the surgical treatment of children with congenital bladder disease, and advanced stone treatment. The IU School of Medicine Department of Urology was the first to publish on High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for prostate cancer treatment in the United States and is one of the first to offer this treatment.



Renowned surgeons, high surgical volume and diversity of hospital settings makes IU School of Medicine an appealing training choice; a revival of downtown cultural districts and low cost of living make Indianapolis a great place to live.


The urology team is making practice-changing breakthroughs in urologic cancer, pediatric reconstruction, stone treatments and other areas. Medical researchers in urology helped pioneer focal treatment for prostate cancer with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU).
