Department of Urology


Welcome to our website. We are privileged to host a team of world-class medical professionals dedicated to providing compassionate, patient-focused care while helping to further enhance the reputation of Montreal and McGill as global leaders in vital healthcare research.

Our state-of-the-art urology research lab has recently achieved breakthroughs in the area of voiding dysfunction — and we are currently the only group in Canada researching stem cells as a treatment for this problem. Our team also has become a recognized leader in the field of uro-oncology, where we are working on advances in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer as well as in the field of kidney cancer. One of the most exciting areas of research we are engaged in at the moment involves the development of an artificial sphincter.

Of course, it is not all about research. The priorities of the Department of Urology go hand in hand with the overall mission of the hospital, which includes providing the highest possible standards of medical care. That’s why our team features a balance of research-oriented individuals and top-flight clinicians — including one of Quebec’s very few uro-gynecology specialists — who are able to diagnose and treat literally thousands of patients each year. Our commitment to providing first-class care is also reflected in substantial investments in the very latest medical technology, such as laparoscopy and surgical robotics, so that we can employ minimally invasive techniques that are less risky, less onerous and let patients get back on their feet faster.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the vital work our team accomplishes.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many friends of the department, including our tireless volunteers, the generous benefactors who provide financial donations earmarked for Urology via the Jewish General Hospital Foundation, and those avid supporters who make our annual Tennis Classic fundraiser such a smashing success.

Rest assured that, with your commitment and support, we will continue working very hard to develop new and better ways to treat prostate cancer and other urologic disorders.
