New Sparrow Urology practice responds to local demand

Published: Oct. 2, 2018

LANSING, MI – Sparrow is pleased to announce the addition of a new specialty practice, Sparrow Medical Group Urology, responding to increasing demand in the mid-Michigan region.

The practice, scheduled to open in the Sparrow Professional Building on Dec. 3, is led by Jamie M. Bartley, D.O., FACOS; Richard C. Bennett, M.D..; and Richard C. Sarle, M.D., M.S. SMG Urology speaks to Sparrow’s mission to provide quality, compassionate care to everyone, every time. To achieve that goal, we must ensure Patients throughout mid-Michigan have access to the best care close to home.

The development of the practice has been a high priority for Sparrow as demand for urologic care is increasing. Current and forecasted need, now and for the next 20 years, will rapidly outpace the existing capacity of urologic providers in the region.

With nearly 30 years of combined experience, Drs. Bartley, Bennett, and Sarle are fellowship-trained in their subspecialties of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, male infertility, microsurgery, andrology, and erectile dysfunction, and robotic and laparoscopic urologic oncology, respectively.

In addition, they have combined to perform thousands of robotic and other minimally invasive surgeries and provide broad care in general urology issues. All of these skills will create a uniquely comprehensive urology practice at Sparrow.

SMG Urology will also serve as a teaching and research hub, connecting to our Urology Residency program and the multi-disciplinary team-based research and treatment program offered through the Sparrow Herbert-Herman Cancer Center.

Choose Wisely. Choose Sparrow.
