Letter from Urology Department Chairman Dr. Christian Winters


Welcome to the LSU Department of Urology website. Our faculty includes specialists in Pediatric Urology, Urologic Oncology, Voiding Dysfunction, Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstruction, Urinary Stone Disease, and Erectile Dysfunction.  We are currently providing inpatient and outpatient care throughout the Greater Metropolitan New Orleans Area including: East Jefferson General Hospital, Touro Infirmary, University Medical Center, Children's Hospital of New Orleans.  Our department continues to partner with our community medical centers to enhance urological clinical care pathways in all areas of urology. We have embraced the LSU mission of having a strong presence in the community, and we will continue to expand these programs.

Our competitive ACGME accredited residency program includes two residents per year for five years.  While clincial experience and diversity is very strong, our program is unique in the educational structure and faculty support/participation.  Our residents have become active participants in state, regional, and national meetings as our research programs continue to grow.  Upon completion of their residency, our residents persue a mixture of fellowship training or private practice.  

Our department remains focused on the mission of patient care, education, and research.  This is an exciting time for all of us as our department continues unprecedented growth. I am honored to represent this outstanding group of Urologists and trainees as we continue to provide complex urologic care to south Lousiana and along the gulf coast.
