Dr. Tin Ngo earned his medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, N.C. He completed an internship in general surgery and residencies in general surgery and urology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in molecular biochemistry and biophysics from Yale University, New Haven, Conn.
“I treat my patients like members of my own family,” Ngo says. “That means my job is to make sure you and your loved ones understand your diagnosis and all the available options, whether that involves medication, surgery, or close observation. That also means my job is to make sure that the best modern treatments are available to you.”
As a urologist, Ngo treats any condition that is part of the genital and urinary systems. This includes problems that range from frequent urination due to an enlarged prostate to kidney stones to cancers of any of the genitourinary organs (kidney, adrenal, ureter, bladder, prostate, urethra, testes, and penis). He focuses on minimally invasive treatments, including endoscopic and laparoscopic approaches, whenever possible.
He writes a blog on men’s health issues called, “In the Know with Dr. Ngo” on NorthBay.org.
