Dr. Gibson practices general urology, meaning he sees and manages all urologic conditions. Over his many years in practice, Dr. Gibson has developed and maintained close relationships with urologic colleagues, many of whom are considered regional and world experts in their areas of sub specialty within the field of urology.
