Urology of Virginia celebrated its 100th year of providing urological care to residents of Hampton Roads on January 1, 2022. Specializing in medical and surgical care of the genitourinary system, Urology of Virginia treats many conditions, including kidney stone issues and cancers of the kidney, bladder, and prostate as well as incontinence.
“Urology of Virginia is proud to have been in practice and delivering care to the Hampton Roads community for the past 100 years,” said Dr. Jennifer Miles-Thomas, president of Urology of Virginia. “This is rare, as there are only a few urology practices across the country who have been able to deliver care to their communities for that amount of time.”
The practice was founded in 1922 by Dr. Charles Devine Sr. after he trained with Dr. Hugh Hampton Young at Johns Hopkins. Both of Devine’s sons joined the practice in the 1950s. A passion for education led to the creation of a residency program in 1965. Urology of Virginia was also instrumental in Eastern Virginia Medical School’s establishment, becoming one of the first departments within the school. In 1997, seven Hampton Roads urology practices merged with Urology of Virginia.
“I am so grateful to be a leader in this time of innovation and change,” said Miles-Thomas. “Urology of Virginia plans to continue to serve our community for centuries to come by bringing innovation, expertise and compassionate, high-quality urologic care to Hampton Roads.”
Urology of Virginia’s main office is located in Virginia Beach. There are also offices on the Peninsula in Hampton and Williamsburg. For more information regarding their services, please visit https://www.urologyofva.net/.
