Many of the region’s top urologists can be found at Hudson Valley Urology (HVU), P.C., a respected provider of leading-edge care for men and women with all types of urologic conditions. HVU’s 10 board-certified physicians use the latest diagnostic, medical and surgical advances to offer patients the highest quality urologic care. In fact, HVU was recently honored with the prestigious seal of recognition for its Quality Healthcare Initiatives from the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
A significant and distinguishing feature of Hudson Valley Urology’s practice is that each doctor is highly trained not only in general urology, but also in at least one sub-specialty—including incontinence, erectile dysfunction, kidney stone disease, prostate problems, uro-oncology and minimally invasive surgery.
“Only a multi-physician, single specialty practice like ours can offer patients such comprehensive and integrated care,” says Dr. Daniel Katz, HVU physician and Chairman of the Department of Urology at Vassar Brothers Medical Center. Dr. Katz specializes in female voiding dysfunction and incontinence. This summer, HVU will be starting a new program devoted exclusively to women’s urologic health. The program will be coordinated by Evelyn Santi, CUNP, who will bring both her expertise and a woman’s sensitivity to the care of patients.
The physicians of Hudson Valley Urology are skilled surgeons with particular expertise in reconstructive surgery, as well as minimally invasive, robotic and laparoscopic surgical techniques. The doctors are on staff at five major hospitals in the region, including Vassar Brothers Medical Center, St. Francis Hospital, Northern Dutchess Hospital, Benedictine Hospital and Kingston Hospital.
Hudson Valley Urology also has the distinction of being one of the nation’s largest providers of Clinical Research in Urology. This offers patients the opportunity to benefit from the latest treatments in urology before they are available to the general public. Under the direction of Dr. Evan Goldfischer, the program is currently participating in approximately 50 research trials to help develop innovative new therapies and devices for overactive bladder, benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer, erectile dysfunction, female sexual dysfunction and other conditions.
“Urologic conditions are very common and highly treatable in most cases,” notes Dr. Katz. “Many people live with unpleasant symptoms because they are embarrassed to seek help.” At HVU, the entire staff is committed to providing sensitive, personalized care in comfortable, state-of-the-art offices located in Poughkeepsie, Kingston, Hopewell Junction, New Paltz, Fishkill and Rhinebeck.
