Minnesota Urology is the largest private urology practice in the upper Midwest with more than 50 exceptional physicians and advanced level providers.

Minnesota Urology was formed as an integration of Minnesota’s two most respected independent urology practices; Metro Urology and Urology Associates. Our providers are devoted to a singular vision to deliver optimal and compassionate, patient-centered care for all adult urologic conditions.

31 locations; no referral necessary

As the largest private urology practice in the Midwest, Minnesota Urology is a center of excellence with 31 clinic locations serving patients in Minneapolis, St. Paul and areas throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Patients can CLICK HERE to request an appointment online or can CALL A SPECIFIC LOCATION to make an appointment via phone; no referral is necessary to see our physicians.

Female urology specialists

We have urology providers who specialize in female issues. These physicians have all received specialized fellowship training related to the care of patients with pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence, bladder/bowel dysfunction and other pelvic-related concerns. Because our doctors have the highest level of expertise in urology for women, many of them are asked to train other urologists and gynecologists in the performance and use of advanced therapies.

Specialists in prostate cancer and urology for men

At Minnesota Urology we are leaders in the field of prostate cancer and are one of very few urology practices in the state of Minnesota to offer MRI/Ultrasound-guided biopsies using a system called UroNav. This technology is invaluable for men with a rising PSA despite negative biopsies, patients on active surveillance, or for those requiring a targeted biopsy approach. The UroNav fusion biopsy system not only results in greater precision in performing prostate biopsies, but in many cases can be life-saving because it can detect cancers that would have previously gone undetected and untreated.

Our expertise in the medical community

Referring physicians across the region recognize the value of the specialized urology services offered at Minnesota Urology and refer their male and female patients to us for the highest level of care and sophisticated diagnostic testing.

Dr. Stillwell photoDr. Thomas J. Stillwell

The physicians and employees of Minnesota Urology were devastated to learn early this morning that our colleague and friend, Dr. Thomas J. Stillwell, was killed late yesterday afternoon when piloting his plane from Moose Lake, MN back to the Twin Cities. Dr. Stillwell had just completed a regularly scheduled day of patient care at the Mercy Hospital clinic, where he provided urologic services to the Moose Lake community two times per month.

Dr. Stillwell’s practice was unique in that he focused mainly on providing care to patients in rural communities that otherwise did not have access to a urologic physician and surgeon. In addition to Moose Lake, Dr. Stillwell flew his plane to Mora and Onamia, MN, and Grantsburg, WI regularly for more than twenty years.

“Tom was extremely dedicated to serving the rural communities of Minnesota and Western Wisconsin,” noted Dr. Jeffry Twidwell, a fellow urologist who worked closely with Dr. Stillwell at Minnesota Urology. “He was one of a kind. In today’s world, how many specialty physicians dedicate their professional careers to serving rural areas…and travel to them by piloting their own planes? He was an incredibly generous and caring individual.”

Dr. Stillwell was a board-certified urologist who received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, and completed his residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Prior to beginning his career at Minnesota Urology, Dr. Stillwell served as a surgeon with the U.S. Marines Mobile Surgical Hospital in Kuwait during Desert Storm. He has been named a Top Doctor in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine numerous years, including 2019. 

Dr. Stillwell was an outstanding physician, colleague and friend who will be deeply missed. All of us at Minnesota Urology extend our condolences to his family, who remain in our thoughts and prayers.
