Chesapeake Urology

The Nation’s Premier Urology Practice

Chesapeake Urology is a fully-integrated urology practice providing a comprehensive array of urologic services to its patients. The Company operates 27 medical offices and 18 AAAHC-certified ambulatory surgery centers in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford, Howard, Carroll, Montgomery, Prince George’s, Wicomico, Worchester, MD counties, Baltimore City, and Sussex County, DE, and has a staff of more than 900 including 91 physicians, 85 who are urologists. Chesapeake Urology has been named one of the top places to work in healthcare nationally by Modern Healthcare magazine and Becker’s ASC Review, and locally by the Baltimore Sun, Baltimore magazine and the Baltimore Business Journal.  Our vision is to support the creation of a national network of urology affiliates which will enable urologists to better meet the needs of their patients by leveraging the financial and operational strengths of Chesapeake Urology.

We are dedicated to clinical excellence and cutting-edge research. More than 37 of our urologists have extensive fellowship training in areas such as endourology, male reproductive medicine, neurology/voiding dysfunction, laparoscopy, robotics and urologic oncology.

Our physician staff is a blend of experienced urologists with long careers, numerous accolades and broad vision, who are here to mentor and support our up and coming, younger physicians, trained in the latest state-of-the-art techniques and filled with new ideas and passion. Our nursing, research and support staff also are outstanding.


Chesapeake Urology Firsts

  • Chesapeake Urology’s Large, Complex Kidney Stone program, with Director Julio G. Davalos, M.D., is the first and only practice in the nation to offer patients tubeless PCNL surgery in our Summit Ambulatory Surgical Center.
  • Our urologists were the first in Baltimore to offer da Vinci robotic surgery on a community hospital level so that more men having prostatectomies could have the benefits of a faster recovery, less blood loss and fewer complications. Chesapeake Urology surgeons have performed more da Vinci robotic surgeries than any other group of urologists in the area – more than 1,000 procedures – providing our patients with the reassurance that they are in the hands of surgeons with the utmost expertise.
  • Chesapeake Urology surgeons performed the first robotic cystectomy in Maryland.
  • Chesapeake Urology surgeons were also the first in the Mid-Atlantic region to remove a kidney stone percutaneously and the first to implant a penile prosthesis.
