About Chesapeake Urology

CHESAPEAKE UROLOGY - THE NATION’S PREMIER UROLOGY PRACTICE

Chesapeake Urology Associates is the largest urology practice in Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region, and one of the leading urology practices in the nation. We offer patients the most advanced urologic care available today and serve men, women and children in Maryland, as well as people from other parts of the country. 

Chesapeake Urology's 63 physicians, 14 physician assistants and three patient navigators work throughout our 20 medical offices and 14 AAAHC-certified ambulatory surgery centers located throughout Maryland to provide superior care to each patient.

We are dedicated to clinical excellence and cutting-edge research. More than 20 of our urologists have extensive fellowship training in areas such as endourology, male reproductive medicine, neurology/voiding dysfunction, laparoscopy, robotics and urologic oncology.  

Our physician staff is a blend of experienced urologists with long careers, numerous accolades and broad vision, who are here to mentor and support our up and coming, younger physicians, trained in the latest state-of-the-art techniques and filled with new ideas and passion. Our nursing, research and support staff also are outstanding.

 

CHESAPEAKE UROLOGY FIRSTS

  • Chesapeake Urology’s Large, Complex Kidney Stone program, with Director Julio G. Davalos, M.D., is the first and only practice in the nation to offer patients tubeless PCNL surgery in our Summit Ambulatory Surgical Center.
  • Our urologists were the first in Baltimore to offer da Vinci robotic surgery on a community hospital level so that more men having prostatectomies could have the benefits of a faster recovery, less blood loss and fewer complications. Chesapeake Urology surgeons have performed more da Vinci robotic surgeries than any other group of urologists in the area - more than 1,000 procedures - providing our patients with the reassurance that they are in the hands of surgeons with the utmost expertise. 
  • Chesapeake Urology surgeons performed the first robotic cystectomy in Maryland.
  • Chesapeake Urology surgeons were also the first in the Mid-Atlantic region to remove a kidney stone percutaneously and the first to implant a penile prosthesis.
