Additional information


My name is Stephen Strup; I am the James F. Glenn Professor and Chief of Urology at the University of Kentucky. I am a native of Northwest Ohio and attended DePauw University, graduating Summa Cum Laude in 1984. I received my medical degree from the University of Indiana in 1988. I completed a residency in Urology in 1994 at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia and then completed an Urologic oncology fellowship in 1996 at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. I returned to Thomas Jefferson University where I was one of the early adopters of the Hand-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy techniques.

In 2003, I moved to the University of Kentucky in Lexington, where I was appointed the Director of Minimally invasive urologic surgery and, in 2006, residency program director. I was then named the James F. Glenn Chief of Urology in 2007. My clinical interests include Urologic Oncology, minimally invasive and robotic surgery, and living donor nephrectomy.
