Solomon Woldu, M.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He specializes in urologic malignancies including bladder, kidney, prostate, and testicular cancers.

Dr. Woldu grew up in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and holds a bachelor's degree in biology from Washington University in St. Louis. He earned his medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and stayed in New York City for his general surgery internship and urology residency at Columbia University Medical Center.

After his residency, he came back to Dallas to pursue a fellowship in oncology at UT Southwestern. The two-year Society of Urologic Oncology fellowship included both research and advanced clinical training in complex open and minimally invasive surgery. During this fellowship, he was the recipient of a National Institutes of Health training grant. His research interests are broad, and he has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and multiple book chapters in urology. He regularly presents his research findings at national medical conferences.

Dr. Woldu sees patients at the UT Southwestern Main Campus in Dallas (West Campus Building 3, 4th Floor).

Meet Dr. Woldu

Urologist in Dallas and Fort Worth

After leaving Dallas – Fort Worth for college in St. Louis and then medical education and training in New York, Dr. Woldu found himself longing to come back home to Texas. He was fortunate to have made it back for a two-year fellowship specializing in the treatment of complex cancers involving the urologic organs, and feels even more fortunate to join the esteemed faculty at UT Southwestern.

“Cancers involving the urologic tract are among the most commonly diagnosed malignancies,” says Dr. Woldu. “These diseases are not only life-threatening, but treatments are often associated with significant lifestyle changes that can affect intimacy and well-being. I’m particularly cognizant of these aspects, and insist that the patient’s overall well-being and goals are at the forefront of any decision making.”

“Each patient and each cancer is unique, and I employ a personalized approach to each treatment decision,” says Dr. Woldu.

“Guidelines are just guidelines. A ‘cookie cutter’ approach might have worked in the past, but technology has advanced significantly in the last few years. Multi-modal approaches to treating cancer now include genetic analysis of tumors, traditional chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, and surgery. When surgery is required, I offer patients robotic or minimally invasive options whenever possible so they can get back to their lives as soon as possible.”
