Dr. Richard Chopp

Dr. Richard Chopp joined The Urology Team in 1983 where he is a board certified Urologist and President of the practice. He attended medical school at The University of Minnesota, served as an Assistant Professor of Urology at the USC Medical Center, and was a Special Fellow in Urology Oncology at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Dr. Chopp is well-known in Central Texas for performing vasectomies, but is passionate about prostate cancer care. He has been instrumental in introducing state-of-the-art prostate biopsy technology to Austin that has changed prostate cancer detection and treatment at The Urology Team. While Dr. Chopp works with male patients in all aspects of General Urology, his areas of interest include prostate cancer, vasectomies, kidney stone disease, male endocrine urology disorders, and penile curvature.

He is a member of various professional societies, including the Society of University Urologists, the New York Section of the American Urological Society, and the American Urological Association. He has been extensively published in professional journals, and introduced Laparoscopic urology surgery to Austin in 1991. Dr. Chopp is affiliated with all major hospitals in Austin.
