Urology of Indiana Experience

Urology of Indiana is the oldest continuously operating urology practice in the country tracing its roots to 1887

In 1887, William N. Wishard, M.D. founded his practice to specialize in the field of genitourinary surgery. The photograph above was taken at the William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History at the American Urological Association, Baltimore, Maryland, which opened an exhibit in October 2006 featuring Dr. Wishard and his contributions to urology. Dr. Wishard served as urology chairman for forty-nine years at what is now known as the Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Apart from his professional activities, Dr. Wishard was influential with the Indiana Legislature in matters of public health and education. His significant input led to the creation of the Indiana Medical Licensing Act and the Indiana State Board of Health. Urology of Indiana is proud to follow Dr. Wishard's example by continuing to be leaders in the field of urology.
