Our urology coordinator can assist in connecting your patients with a qualified urologist at Retreat Doctors’ Hospital.
Retreat Doctors’ Hospital’s Center for Urology is the destination for adult urologic care in Richmond and Central Virginia. Our fellowship-trained, board-certified specialists combine 75 years of expertise and experience with technological innovations – including robotic surgery – to provide advanced care for even the most complex conditions.
- More than 30 subspecialists focus exclusively on specific urological conditions and treatments. You can be confident your patient will be matched with an expert physician who offers the latest treatments and technologies, many not available anywhere else in the state.
- We’ll see your patient within days, not weeks. Your referred patients will receive timely care. No need to wait four weeks or more for an appointment with a urology specialist.
- Volume matters. Studies have shown that high-volume providers have better outcomes. Our physicians perform hundreds of complex urology procedures every year with excellent outcomes.
From the moment your patient arrives at our hospital, they receive care from an expert team of professionals. Our physicians, nurses, and support staff work together to provide outstanding care from pre-op to post-op with the best possible outcomes.
All patients receive pre- and post-surgery education on how to prepare for surgery and what to expect during their hospital stay and recovery. They’ll be registered for the required class during scheduling of their procedure. Patients can call 804-330-9105 for more information.
You’ll have a dedicated clinical coordinator to keep you informed throughout the process. After treatment, we transition your patient back to your care.

Richmond’s only robotic surgical Center for Urology
As part of the Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery, Retreat Doctors’ Hospital specialists perform urological surgery using robotic-assisted technology, which allows for greater precision and control, a 3-D high-definition view of the surgical field, and, in some cases, single-port access. We are the first and only hospital in Virginia to perform urological surgery using single-port robotic-assisted technology with the da Vinci SP, the newest robotic-assisted technology.
Robotic surgery offers patients significant benefits including:
- Smaller and fewer incisions
- Less bleeding
- Less pain
- Lower risk of complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recovery time
