As urologists, our physicians are highly trained to treat disorders of the male and female urinary tract (bladder, ureter, kidney, and urethra) and the male reproductive system. Urology is classified as a surgical subspecialty, but since a wide variety of clinical problems are encountered when treating urological conditions, knowledge of internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, and other specialties is required.
Our medical staff includes the following physicians:
Dr. Heeb has been in urological practice in Lawrence since 1997. He received his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Kansas in 1988, where he was a member of Tau Beta Pi, an engineering honor society. He earned his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City in 1992. He performed his surgical internship at St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, from 1992-1994, then completed urologic surgical specialty training at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 1997.
Dr. Heeb was a pioneer in the use of the Greenlight Laser for treatment of enlarged prostate (BPH). He was the first private practice physician to use the laser in the Midwestern United States in 2002, when it was called the Niagara laser. Since then he has successfully performed several hundred laser procedures and trained a number of other physicians in the technique.
Other primary areas of expertise include the evaluation and treatment of female pelvic floor prolapse and urinary incontinence, prostate cancer, kidney stones, and general urology.
He enjoys spending time with his family – wife Barbara and children Rachel and Harrison – and playing sports, weight training, photography, music, and riding his bicycle to work 3 to 4 days a week.
Dr. Heeb is certified by the American Board of Urology. He is a member of the American Urological Association, the South Central Section of the AUA, the American Medical Association, the Kansas City Urological Society, and the Douglas County Medical Society.
