About me

My name is Li-Ming Su, MD, and I am the Pete and Carolyn Newsome Professor of Urologic Oncology and Chair of the University of Florida Department of Urology. I completed my residency in urology at the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical College and an advanced fellowship in robotics and laparoscopic surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Prior to joining UF, I served eight years on faculty at the James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute at Johns Hopkins. As a proud Gainesville native, I am glad to be serving the community I grew up in and am especially proud to lead the No. 1 academic urology program in the state of Florida.

My clinical interests include minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery for prostate cancer, kidney cancer, adrenal tumors and urothelial cancer of the kidney. My research focus is on exploring advanced imaging as applied to urologic oncologic surgery.

As a physician, my goal is to provide patients with outstanding, compassionate care tailored to their unique circumstance and urologic condition.

Outside of medicine, I enjoy saltwater fishing, playing tennis, raising koi fish and spending time with my wife, son, and two dogs.
