Welcome to Virginia Urology’s Research Department. As part of our commitment to provide excellent medical care in the specialty of urology, we are involved in clinical research. This allows both Virginia Urology and you, our patient, to help further medical knowledge and improve medical care for ourselves and our children.
The physicians of Virginia Urology are committed to offering their patients access to state of the art research studies. These studies are conducted by trained research coordinators under the supervision of your urologist in order to provide their patients care and treatment that would otherwise not be available to them.
