Dr. Julio Chong practices general urology and is fellowship-trained in endourology and stone disease. His specialties include the surgical treatment of large and complex kidney stones including percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), tubeless and multi-tract PCNL, and miniature percutaneous nephrolithotomy (mPCNL). He specializes in minimally invasive management of upper tract urothelial carcinoma and
open and laparoscopic management of renal malignancies.

Dr. Chong completed his fellowship training in endourology and stone disease at the University of Maryland/Chesapeake Urology program. He received his medical doctorate from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine and completed his general surgery internship and urology residency at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

His fellowship training at the University of Maryland/Chesapeake Urology program focused on the medical and surgical management of stone disease with an emphasis on percutaneous surgical approaches to treatment and removal of large and complex stone disease. While a fellow at the University of Maryland/Chesapeake Urology, Dr. Chong performed over 300 percutaneous nephrolithotomies under the tutelage of Dr. Julio Davalos. He also presented his research at the 2019 World Congress of Endourology and his research at the Virtual American Urological Association 2020 Meeting where he earned the title of best scientific poster.
