Center for comprehensive urologic excellence

All of the physicians at SBU are trained to manage the urologic patient, regardless of what condition he or she may have. Given the breadth of our experience, our personal, compassionate touch, and our technical expertise, there is no reason for any urologic patient to look elsewhere.


Robotic Surgery

The physicians at SBU are the only urologists in the South Bay who specialize in robotic surgery. Experience is the most important characteristic when performing complex robotic surgery. Since performing the South Bay's first robotic prostatectomy in 2006, SBU physicians have performed over 1000 robotic procedures.


Female Urology & Pelvic Reconstruction

SBU physicians provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment for patients with voiding dysfunction and pelvic floor disorders. SBU is proud to have Dr. Shelby Morrisroe, the only female urologist in the South Bay. Dr. Morrisroe offers innovative, minimally invasive procedures as well as conservative and surgical treatments for all female urology disorders.


Minimally-Invasive and Major Oncology

The physicians at SBU offer minimally-invasive and standard surgical options for treating urological cancers. We have extensive training and expertise at managing all the oncologic conditions of the genitourinary system and have performed more urologic cancer operations than any group in the South Bay.

Thank you for visiting South Bay Urology's website. SBU is located in Torrance, California, near Providence Little Company of Mary Hospital and Torrance Memorial Medical Center. We offer complete urologic care for patients from the South Bay and beyond. We take pride in our ability to evaluate and treat everything from the simplest to the most complex disease processes. We routinely perform innovative surgical procedures using the da Vinci robot (robotic prostatectomy, robotic partial nephrectomy, robotic pyeloplasty, robotic sacrocolpopexy) and are well-versed in advanced laparoscopy (laparoscopy nephrectomy, nephroureterectomy, partial nephrectomy, adrenalectomy).

We manage all female urologic issues such as vaginal vault and uterine prolapse (cystocele, rectocele, enterocele), urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, and fistulas (vesicovaginal, rectovaginal). These conditions often require sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic evaluation, and we offer these (cystoscopy, urodynamics, pelvic floor rehabilitation, physical therapy, biofeedback) in the appropriate circumstance.

We also manage all male urologic condtions with the most advanced surgical and medical techniques. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (prostate enlargement), for example, is common but it takes an expert to determine which treatment - medical or surgical (transurethral microwave therapy [TUMT], greenlight photovaporization [PVP], saline transurethral resection of the prostate [TURP]) - is appropriate. Erectile dysfunction, hypogonadism (low testosterone), and male infertility are treated in a similar manner.

We offer extensive and appropriate treatment for all urologic oncologic (cancer) conditions as well. Bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, ureteral cancer, testicular cancer, penile cancer, and adrenal cancer are all treated with the most up-to date surgical techniques.

Additionally, we offer evaluation and treatment of nephrolithiasis (kidney stone disease) and have extensive experience in ESWL (shockwave lithotripsy), complex ureteroscopy, and percutaneous nephrostolithotomy (for treatment of staghorn stones).

Finally, we pride ourselves in managing all urologic conditions with a personal and professional touch. South Bay Urology combines experience, reputation, and expertise with compassion when treating our patients.
