Urology Specialists of Nevada was founded in 1996 by Dr. Robert McBeath, a lifelong Nevada resident and second-generation physician. His goal was to create the highest-quality and most technologically advanced urology practice in the Las Vegas valley.
Today, USONV, a part of OptumCare, is one of the largest urology practices in Southern Nevada. Over the past 17 years, USONV has gathered some of the brightest urologists trained in some of the most acclaimed educational institutes such as Brown University, MIT, and University of Southern California.
Our Commitment to Advanced Surgery and Technology
Throughout our history, USONV has acquired and used the latest technology available. Right now, we’re treating prostate cancer with the Calypso System, da Vinci surgical procedures, microwave therapy and more. In addition, USONV has acquired MRI fusion biopsy technology that allows the physicians to combine real-time, high-resolution 3D ultrasound with 3D MRI images of the prostate for enhanced prostate biopsy sampling and visualization of suspected cancers. Our own Dr. Mulugeta Kassahun has performed the most robotic prostatectomies and partial nephrectomies in Las Vegas.
In 2012, we brought radiation oncologist Dr. Michael Becker on board to form Nevada Cancer Specialists. Urology and oncology are complementary specialties, and we deliver unparalleled continuity of care to our patients who require both.
Technology and knowledge combine to make USONV a provider of choice for patients in Southern Nevada, northern Arizona and California.
