Each year, UCSF Medical Center accepts nominations for
their Exceptional Physician Award. The award recognizes physicians, residents and clinical fellows for demonstrating the medical center values of Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence (PRIDE). This year, the UCSF Medical Center named eight physicians of which Urology’s Assistant Professor, Tom Chi, MD was one.
Dr. Chi joined the UCSF faculty of the Department of Urology in 2013 where his clinical interests include the care of patients with urinary stone disease and those in need of minimally invasive surgery. He specializes in the performance of endoscopic, laparoscopic, and percutaneous surgeries. He has established ReSKU, the Registry for Stones of the Kidneys and Ureter, the first kidney stone registry of its kind for tracking patient clinical outcomes and is an internationally recognized specialist in the use of ultrasound in the management of kidney stones to minimize patient radiation exposure.
Says Peter Carroll, MD, and Chair of the Department, “Tom is a compassionate and talented physician, well-deserving of this coveted recognition. We are proud to have him as part of our team.”
