Professional Statement

Dr. Gelpi joins Houston Metro Urology from Harvard University, where he completed a fellowship in Urologic Oncology.

He specializes in minimally invasive surgical procedures concerning the treatment of malignant genitourinary diseases such as cancer of the prostate, bladder, and other urologic tissue. Minimally invasive surgery refers to the approach of treatment that requires small to no incision relative to what is traditionally used in open surgery, while yielding comparable results. Using these minimally invasive techniques along with the latest in medical technology, Dr. Gelpi is able to greatly reduce patient discomfort post surgery and insure a more rapid recovery time.

He has published in multiple peer-reviewed medical journals, presented at multiple regional/national meetings, and received many awards for his works. His passion for medical advances is only surpassed by the well being and care for his patients.

Dr. Gelpi (Heppi) Had great bedside manner, He took his time and asked a ton of questions to try and figure out what was the cause of the issue. The staff is also great! I will be a repeat patient. (The only down side is the Wait time is ridiculous. If they get that figured out it would be great. If not I will start looking else where.
