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.”
