The Emory Clinic opened a new urology practice at Emory Johns Creek Hospital (EJCH) on November 1st, 2016. "We're excited to expand Emory Clinic Urology services to treat patients in Johns Creek and surrounding communities," says Martin Sanda, MD, Chairman and Chief of Urology at Emory School of Medicine and Emory Healthcare.
Aaron Weiss, MD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Urology at Emory University School of Medicine, is leading the Emory Urology team at Johns Creek. He describes a key goal of the new urology practice to be greater convenience for patients in the Johns Creek area. Johns Creek is approximately 25 miles north of the main campus on Clifton Road. "We want to extend the highest quality and breadth of urology care here in Johns Creek that you would receive in the heart of Atlanta," says Dr. Weiss.
The practice provides diagnosis and treatments for patients with general urologic conditions, including urologic cancers, kidney stones, and male infertility. Eunice Goetz, PA-C, says the practice hopes to work closely with Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University doctors and staff at EJCH to treat patients with bladder, kidney, and prostate cancer. "Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to better serve patients and provide high-quality patient care with a link to innovative research and clinical trials at Emory School of Medicine," says Ms. Goetz.
Emory Clinic's Johns Creek urology office includes seven exam rooms. Additionally, EJCH has two da Vinci robots, offering the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques to patients. There are plans to provide expertise in reconstructive urology and female urology with the addition of faculty in the future.
