Urologists are both medical physicians and surgeons. Six of these talented and dedicated specialists make up the full-service practice of Urology Partners, the largest and most complete urology group in Manatee County.

Urology Partners originated from the merger of three separate groups Manatee Urology, Gulf Coast Urology and one of the physicians from Urology Associates, forming Urology Partners in October 2006.

Urology Partners offer treatment for a full range of conditions of the adrenal, kidney, bladder, and prostate, including oncology, incontinence, and stone disease, as well as conditions such as erectile dysfunction. Urology Partners treat anyone from senior citizens to children. Urologists are unique, in that we take care of patients of all ages, says Dr. Alan Miller. Patients come in as self-referrals or are referred by their family physician.

Working to expand their spectrum of diagnostic and treatment services and their state-of-the-art facilities, Urology Partners has opened their own Imaging Center, their own Incontinence Center, and collaborated on their own Ambulatory Surgical Center and Radiation Treatment Center. All are in-house except for the Radiation Center which is located in Lakewood Ranch.Working with Manatee Memorial Hospital, Urology Partners has just introduced Robotic Surgery, an innovative technique using a computerized robot controlled by the surgeon that can work with greater precision and flexibility than the human hand. Robotic Surgery is used in surgeries such as removal of the prostate due to cancer.

The six surgeons that make up Urology Partners are all Board Certified by the American Board of Urology, and do cutting-edge research coordinated by Dr. Miller, and are respected community lecturers on all aspects of urologic diseases. All six hold clinical privileges at Manatee Memorial Hospital, Blake Medical Center and Lakewood Ranch Medical Center. Dr. Miller is the Chief of Surgery at Lakewood Ranch, and Dr. Austin Hill is the Vice Chief of Staff at Manatee Memorial.

All of the Urology Partners physicians and staff share one goal: to be your partner in education, care and management of urologic health issues. Visit their website at www.urology-partners.com to learn more about this well-trained, highly-skilled group of surgeons and the work of Urology Partners.
