Michael Cookson, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Urology at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, is the only Oklahoman and one of only 20 urologic surgeons nationwide ever elected to the Society for Pelvic Surgeons. The announcement of his election was made at the Society for Pelvic Surgeons’ annual meeting on Oct. 7. Cookson also holds the Donald D. Albers Chair and is director of Prostate and Urologic Cancer Services at Stephenson Cancer Center.       

“Dr. Cookson has truly created a center of national excellence at the OU Health Sciences Center. We are truly grateful for his outstanding leadership,” said OU President David Boren.

Cookson, who earned his medical degree from the OU College of Medicine and undergraduate degree from OU in Norman, sees urologic patients as part of OU Physicians.

“As a urologic surgeon caring for patients with urologic cancers including prostate and bladder cancer, I am proud to be elected into this important professional society,” Cookson said. “This multidisciplinary society aligns with our goals of collaboration and multidisciplinary care for patients with prostate and urologic cancers.”

OU Medicine combines the research, education and health care expertise of OU Medical Center, The Children’s Hospital, OU Physicians and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine to establish Oklahoma’s largest and most comprehensive health care system. With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group and encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
