Dr. Mukul B. Patil, M.D.

Dr. Patil was raised in Sarver, PA in Butler County. After graduating from Freeport High School, he completed his undergraduate studies at Northwestern University and continued at Northwestern's Feinberg School of Medicine. He went further west for his urology training at the Los Angeles County and University of Southern California Medical Center. At USC, one of the nation's original Comprehensive Cancer Centers, he gained extensive and comprehensive experience in traditional open surgery, as well as robotic and minimally invasive surgeries. During his training, he also developed his interest in urologic reconstruction to restore quality of life for cancer patients. He completed a fellowship at a recognized Center of Excellence, focusing on surgery for erectile dysfunction, Peyronie's disease and urinary incontinence.

Dr. Patil's interests include the treatment of erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, urinary incontinence, radiation injury, kidney stones, urinary symptoms; bladder, prostate, and kidney cancers. He also performs minimally invasive vasectomy surgery. He has been recognized for his commitment to excellence and personalized patient care.

Dr. Patil and his family are happy to be back in home in Pennsylvania, where they can enjoy Steeler football, Penguin hockey and Pirates baseball.
