Urology Associates of Mississippi has been serving Mississippians for more than 40 years and are very appreciative of the individuals, families and generations of Mississippians who have entrusted us with their care.
The clinic was opened in 1972 by Dr. Woodie Mason and Dr. Robert Hargis with a firm commitment to provide the most advanced urological care with the greatest compassionate manner. Then named Hinds Urology Clinic, that commitment was a formula for immediate success that continued to grow year-after-year.
In 1988, Dr. Hargis and Dr. Mason expanded and opened a Satellite Clinic in Kosciusko to treat residents and fill an unmet need in Attala County and the surrounding area. Today the office is thriving within the Kosciusko Medical Clinic.
After 26 years of providing quality, reliable care, doctors Harris and Mason made the decision in 1998 to sell the practice and clinic to Dr. Mark Condon who offered the energy, vision and new ideas to lead the clinic in the future.
Thanks in large part to Dr. Mason, who wanted to remain as a part time associate, the clinic went through a seamless transition.
In 1999, Dr. Condon recruited Dr. Avinash Gulanikar, former Assistant Professor in the Division of Urology and Transplant Surgery at University Medical Center. His skills have allowed the clinic to assess and employ the most advanced technology and treatments.
In 2005, Dr. Mason chose to finally enter his long deserved retirement. After Dr. Mason's retirement, Dr. Kapil Pareek joined the group and the Flowood office was opened. Dr. Pareek relocated to Georgia in 2010, when his wife, a Gastroenterologist, was recruited for a long desired position.
Dr. Sujith Reddy joined the practice in 2010 compounding the organization's offerings with his emphasis on minimally invasive procedures such as Endoscopic, Laparascopic, and Robotic procedures. Since 2006, the clinic has offered robotic surgery to the community and now offers advanced robotic procedures, attracting patients from all over Mississippi.
Today Dr. Reddy, Dr. Gulanikar, and Dr. Condon work as a team with the staff of Urology Associates of Mississippi and continue to provide patients the most advanced urological care with the greatest compassion . . . just as when the doors were opened 40 years ago.
