Uehling-Wear Lectures

About the Uehling-Wear Lectures

Dr. David T. Uehling was born and raised outside Chicago, and completed his urology training at Northwestern. Following a successful stint as a fellow at Chicago Children’s Memorial Hospital, he joined the staff at the University of Wisconsin in 1965. Clinically, Dr. Uehling developed a statewide practice in pediatric urology, and has served the children of Wisconsin admirably for 40 years.

Throughout his career, Dr. Uehling distinguished himself in research, with continuous NIH funding in the treatment of urinary tract infections. In 1983, Dr. Uehling assumed the chair of the Division of Urology at UW-Madison, and has grown the program into one of national standing. Upon stepping down as chairman in 2001, Dr. Uehling continues to serve the Department of Urology as an Emeritus Professor. Dr. Uehling has impacted the lives of many patients, urologists and scientists throughout the world. This meeting in his honor is a small way to emphasize all of his accomplishments.

Michael Koch, MD

Chairman, Department of Urology
Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
School of Medicine

The Fluno Center • Madison, Wisconsin

This full-day conference includes sessions addressing the management and treatment of bladder cancer, high-risk prostate cancer, GU cancer ablation and the changing healthcare landscape in urology. In addition to our keynote speaker, faculty and staff from the UW Department of Urology, UW Department of Radiology, and UW Department of Medicine will present lectures.

Dr. Koch completed his undergraduate education at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire and went on to complete medical school in 1981 at that same institution. He began his general surgery training at Dartmouth and after 2 years of general surgery training he spent a year working in the urologic research laboratories at that institution. During that year, his mentor Dr. Scott McDougal, moved to Vanderbilt as a new chairman and took Dr. Koch to finish his training at that institution. He completed his training at Vanderbilt and moved on to become a junior faculty member and by 1998 when he left that institution, he was the Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology. During that time, the Vanderbilt Department of Urology grew enormously and has gained national and international attention for its contributions.

In 1998, Dr. Koch was recruited by Dean Robert Holden to be the new chair of the Department of Urology at Indiana University School of Medicine. Our department had been recognized for many years for its major contributions in testicular cancer under the leadership of Dr. John Donohue and contributions in the area of Pediatric Urology under the direction of Dr. Michael Mitchell. As those two individuals left the institution and the dean recruited a new chairman of the department, there were many changes. Overtime the department has grown from 7 faculty to 23 faculty today. Dr. Koch has been a leader within the medical school, engaged at every level and currently chairs the Chairs Council at IU School of Medicine. Dr. Koch has served as the chair and John P Donohue Professor of Urology at the IU School of Medicine for the past 18 years.

On a national level, he has been actively engaged in all aspects of urology that have to do with maintaining the quality of urologists in the United States and the quality of resident training. He is the past Chair of the examination committee of the ABU/AUA, the Residency Review Committee (RRC), The American Board of the Urology, the Society of University Urologists, and the Society of Academic Chairpersons and Program Directors. There has been only one other individual that has held the positions of both ABU president and RRC Chair and Dr. Koch held these positions simultaneously. In 2015, Dr. Koch was recognized by the AUA with a Distinguished Contribution Award for these efforts. His personal practice is primarily focused in the areas of prostate cancer and bladder cancer. He is one of the leading surgeons in the United States in robotic surgery for prostate cancer. He performed the first robotic prostatectomy in Indiana in 2002 and has, at present, performed over 2000 robotic prostatectomies, which adds to his experience of about 2000 open prostatectomies in the last 28 years of practice. In the early 1990’s he was the first to investigate high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for the treatment of localized prostate cancer, having written and conducted the first US based trial with this technology. Since that time he has had an active interest in HIFU for prostate cancer and in 2016 was the first to us HIFU for partial prostate ablation to treat a patient with prostate cancer. He is actively engaged in research collaborations with other than Indiana University as well as Purdue University, all directed towards improving the outcomes from the treatment of patients with genitourinary malignancies.
