“Most patients referred to us from other urologists are for further diagnostic and surgical treatment,” said Evans. “The name change is to illuminate and distinguish the department as a group of surgeons who provide sub-specialty surgical care to our community.”

The new name will not change the department’s clinical practice, educational component and research activities.
