Emerson’s team understands urology in scientific, medical, and personal ways. Some of our physicians wrote the book on kidney cancer treatments that is used in top medical schools, and have experienced complex urologic conditions themselves. We understand our patients’ medical and personal needs and work hard to help patients overcome them, using the latest treatments, resulting in the best outcomes.

The services our urologists provide

Emerson’s experienced urologists provide comprehensive medical and surgical services for urologic conditions, offering the most advanced diagnostic and treatment expertise available — right here in Concord.

These services include:

  • World-class expertise for treating urologic cancers — Our collaboration with the renowned Massachusetts General Hospital gives you access to world-class urologic cancer specialists and advanced technology in a convenient setting that is close to your home and family. We have advanced expertise in diagnosing and treating bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer (including performing complex partial nephrectomies) and testicular cancer.
  • Focal Cryoablation — This state-of-the-art prostate cancer treatment targets only the cancer cells, without needing to remove the whole prostate. Louis Liou, MD, PhD, is the only doctor in New England who is specially trained to do focal cryoablation. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that does not require major surgery. Patients usually go home the same day and recover in a few days with minimal side effects.
  • Multiparametric MRI — This is a specialized MRI scan to identify areas of the prostate that might be cancerous. Emerson has a partnership with Shields Imaging to detect the precise location of cancer, which is critical to effectively treat the cancer without affecting other areas of the prostate, leading to an improve outcome.
  • Advanced treatments for prostate enlargement and obstruction, including transurethral resection (TURP), laser surgery, and office-based thermal (heat) therapies
  • Minimally-invasive treatments for kidney, bladder and ureteral stones, including lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL, in which kidney stones are removed through a tiny puncture in the skin using a small flexible telescope), and ureteroscopy (the “scope” is used to remove stones in the ureter)
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments, including oral medications, injection therapy and prosthesis surgery
  • Infertility services ,including advanced testing, vasectomy and vasectomy reversal
  • Incontinence therapies, including surgical treatment and non-surgical physical rehabilitation
  • Pediatric care, including procedures to address undescended testes and hydrocele. Emerson’s highly regarded Pediatric Intervention Team helps make the experience more comfortable for young patients and their families.
