Care Philosophy

Using minimally invasive techniques and advanced technology, I focus on the compassionate treatment of patients with complex urologic problems of the kidney, ureter and prostate. Particular areas of focus include the treatment of patients with kidney tumors, kidney obstruction due to congenital or acquired ureteral problems (including ureteral injury), patients with polycystic kidney disease requiring surgery, living kidney donors and patients with prostate cancer.Read more

Patient Reviews (1)
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Link is the best Urologist I've ever had. Through the years, he performed NUMEROUS cystoscopy's on me w/no issues (other than my recurring stones). In 2012, Dr. Link performed a left-side nephrectomy. Prior to the nephrectomy, I spent 30 to 50 days per year IN the hospital, not to mention home recovery after discharge. Painful way to live. Was close to ending myself. Now, no more kidney stones. He saved my life. I am forever in his debt. Awesome bedside manner. Thank you Dr. Link. Carl B.
