Dr. Dean Tortorelis was recently featured on a news segment about an in-office procedure called the Urolift® System that holds enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra.

There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue. The goal of the UroLift® System treatment is to relieve the symptoms that men experience from an enlarged prostate such as urinary frequency, so they can get back to life and enjoy their daily activities. 




Urology Associates is pleased to announce the joining of our new Associate; Paul T. Fadden, M.D.

Dr. Fadden is a Board Certified Urologist who has been practicing in the Twin Cities Metropolitan area since 2002.  He attended Medical School at the University of Minnesota and completed his Urology Residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He practices general urology with emphasis on urologic cancers, urolithiasis and prostate disease.  Dr. Fadden enjoys free time with his family and friends often at a ball diamond or rink. 

Dr. Fadden is happy to be a part of the Urology Associates Team, and will continue to provide excellent care to his established patients and new patients for years to come.


It is our great pleasure to inform you that one of our surgeons, Dr. Sitnikova, is one of the few specialists in the metro area who is now certified by the new Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery ( FPMRS) board.

The certification test was offered this year for the very first time, and surgeons who passed the criteria based on their training and experience were eligible to sit for the first boards. Dr. Sitnikova did so, and sucessfully passed the test and is now one of the first surgeons Board Certified in the FPMRS specialty in the nation and definitely in the Twin Cities Area.

The Board recognizes surgeons, who developed specialized skills in surgical and non-surgical management of women with pelvic floor disorders, including urinary incontinence, other lower urinary tract disorders, pelvic organ prolapse as well as child birth-related injuries.


Urology Associates is happy to announce our two new locations: Burnsville, and Minnetonka Men's Clinic.
