Our Philosophy at Urologic Surgeons of Washington

We have been providing the highest quality urologic care for patients from Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia for over 20 years. Dr. Engel spent the earlier portion of his career introducing advanced minimally invasive surgery to the DMV. He founded the robotic surgery program at George Washington University Hospital, the first of its kind in the entire Mid-Atlantic region. Dr. Engel served as Vice Chairman and Clinical Director of Urologic Robotic Surgery at GW, and has authored over 20 papers and book chapters. Dr. Engel is still a local leader in cutting edge surgical techniques including not only robotic cancer and reconstructive surgery but also robotic vasectomy reversal. To date he has performed nearly 3000 robotic procedures.

USW is comprised of Dr. Engel, Andrew Tobon, MD and Ndidi Okanu, NP. We feel that the best way to serve as many patients as possible, to the highest standard, is to create an availability that is rare in medicine today. We have created a newfound emphasis to invite patients with urgent and perhaps non-surgical problems to our practice with the same prioritization that we give more complex issues. Great examples of this are our Urology Urgent Care concept and online ED medication availability. We guarantee same-day appointments with our NP, Ndidi Okanu.

We have expanded our hallmark care to include urine PCR testing for UTIs that allows for next day definitive results, and we will soon offer in-house urologic ultrasound. We offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of male and female urologic problems not only including urologic cancers, kidney stones, enlarged prostate, and other voiding concerns but also simple and complex UTIs, testis pain, overactive bladder, blood in the urine, and prostatitis. Office procedures are also a priority such as no scalpel vasectomy and minimally invasive enlarged prostate procedures.

Testicular Cancer Self-Screening Reminder

It’s April, which means testicular cancer awareness month is upon us. Testicular cancer is relatively rare yet has the highest prevalence of any cancer in males between the ages of 15 and 44. Unlike many other cancers, testicular cancer self-screening is straightforward and very effective. Regular self-testing has saved lives and, in part because of early detection, has made testicular cancer eminently treatable with exceptional survivorship.
