Great Doctor - his office staff is completely incompetent. They never return calls and they claim to accept Insurance plans that they actually don't. Treat them with utmost care; like a 4 year old with developmental issues

I have seen Dr. Kella for 5 years with no complaints. My major cancer surgery was an absolute breeze compared to other peoples experiences.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Kella says..

Dr Kella completed a fellowship in urologic oncology and robotics in 2004. He has performed more robotic prostate surgeries than anyone else in South Texas. His skills were presented live to hundreds of urologists at the American Urology Association as well as the Kimbrough Urological Seminar. 

In addition, Dr Kella realizes that there are other treatment options for prostate cancer. Radiation therapy, high intensity focused ultrasound, and active surveillance are just some of the other options available to discuss. The Urology Place is part of a multidisciplinary cancer center. This means that you can meet other cancer specialists, all under the same roof!

Enlarged prostate is another area of interest for Dr Kella. He is comfortable with Green Light laser as well as Thullium laser therapy for enlarged prostate. The Urolift was first done in Texas in private practice by Dr Kella. This is treatment done in the office without cutting or heat. It is simple and reliable.
