The Peter D. Fugelso, M.D. Urology Center offers proven expertise and superb
results. An experienced, patient focused team uses the best of recent
medical technology, including state-of-the-art treatment modalities, to
eliminate pain and treat disorders.
Among the Center's outstanding programs is a Kidney Stone Service.
More than 99% of patients are treated on an outpatient basis. Some 95%
of those treated for kidney stones will not have a recurrence within three
months of treatment; many have no recurrence at all. These results are
better than the national retreatment rates for lithotripsy, which run
as high as 35%.
The Center has introduced a high dose radiation (HDR) implant program as
a treatment option for patients who have prostate cancer. For more information
