CINCINNATI (Jan. 4, 2017)–Brooke Edwards, M.D., has been named chief medical officer of Norwood-based The Urology Group.

In her new role, Dr. Edwards is a key member of the executive team and will play a pivotal role in providing medical oversight, expertise and leadership to ensure the continued delivery of advanced urological care in the tristate.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be selected for this position,” Dr. Edwards said. “I look forward to serving and supporting the medical needs of our community with this role.”

Dr. Edwards joined The Urology Group in 2014 and sees patients in its Northern Kentucky and Norwood offices. She replaces Dr. Philip Buffington as CMO, who held the position since 2009.

“We are delighted to add Dr. Edwards to our executive team,” said Dr. Gary Kirsh, president of The Urology Group. “We value her leadership style, successful track record of improving quality and patient care, and the unique perspective she brings to our leadership team.”

Dr. Edwards specializes in robotic surgery of the kidney and prostate, urethral reconstruction and treatment of incontinence, genitourinary cancer and erectile dysfunction. She completed her residency in urology at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia, where she also completed her surgical internship. A member of the American Urological Association as well as the Société Internationale d’Urologie, she is licensed in Kentucky and Ohio.

Dr. Edwards graduated from the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis in 2009. She earned her undergraduate degree in kinesiology from Indiana University (IU) in Bloomington, graduating with High Distinction.
