Dr. Richard Chopp 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 Urologic 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 helped change prostate cancer detection and treatment. 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. Dr. Chopp was the first urologist to bring intravesical BCG treatment for bladder cancer to Austin in 1983. He was also the first urologist to do laparoscopic surgery in Austin for pelvic lymph node dissections in 1990. He learned this procedure from Dr. Bill Schuesler in San Antonio. In 2014, he was the first urologist to bring the UroNav Fusion Biopsy System to Austin, and the first in Austin to perform prostate biopsies using the UroNav. 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 seeing patients at our Jollyville and Westlake locations.
