Mark Cherney, CEO of Central Ohio Urology Group and U.S. Urology Partners, stated, “I am pleased to welcome Dr. Kyle Lester to our practice. Dr. Lester’s extensive training in urologic oncology will be of great value to our team of urologic surgeons and to the level of care we provide to our patients. Dr. Lester’s urologic oncology fellowship and training provides the group with state-of-the-art and leading-edge insight into the overall spectrum of urology diagnostics and therapies.”
Dr. Lester became interested in medicine at an early age as the son of a small town general surgeon in West Virginia. He received his doctoral degree from Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine after attending Sewanee/The University of the South as an undergraduate. His Urologic Surgery Residency and General Surgery Internship were at the Einstein Healthcare Network. Dr. Lester continued his training through a Urologic Oncology Fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Florida.
“I am particularly interested in the oncological aspects of urology, including prostate, kidney, bladder, testicular, adrenal and upper tract cancers. I also enjoy general urology, endourology, prosthetics and kidney stones,” said Dr. Lester.
“During my fellowship, I gained unique training in laparoscopy and robotics, which allows me to optimize patient outcomes. Particularly with a cancer diagnosis, shared decision making is a centerpiece of my practice. I strive to offer the best possible care that fits the patient’s condition and circumstances. Additionally, I humbly accept the challenge a cancer diagnosis brings to the patient and their family,” added Dr. Lester.
Dr. Lester is now accepting patients and will primarily be working from the Worthington office at 350 W. Wilson Bridge Road, Worthington, Ohio 43085 and the Central Ohio Urology Surgery Center at 701 Tech Center Drive, Gahanna, Ohio 43230.
