“This is a community where more urologists are needed so we’re happy to be able to provide top-quality, convenient care here,” said Dr. Razzaq. “The benefit USL brings is not just the expertise of our physicians who will be practicing at this location, but our entire team of 26 specialized urologists who can collaborate with us whenever needed and help ensure the best possible care.”

As part of USL’s larger network of providers, patients at any of their Metro East locations will have access to treatments for a wide range of urological conditions including prostate cancer, pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, sexual health, benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stones, kidney cancer, and erectile dysfunction.

USL opened two other offices and a satellite location in the Metro East earlier this year. The O’Fallon office is located within HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and the Granite City office is located inside Gateway Regional Medical Center. Both locations have a staff of five doctors and a nurse practitioner. The Highland satellite office is located within HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital.
