Our medical director, Dr. Emilia Ripoll M.D., is a board certified urologist. She was born in Barcelona, Spain and educated in the United States. Dr. Ripoll has studied, practiced, and taught urology in the United States for more than 25 years. Dr. Ripoll’s international experience as a urologic oncologist gives her a unique medical perspective that allows her to put her fingers on the pulse of the latest therapeutic advances from both continents.
Dr. Ripoll is the author of two books and dozens of articles on urology. Her specialties include brachytherapy, cryotherapy, and high frequency ultrasound (HIFU) treatments for prostate cancer; numerous treatments for interstitial cystitis (IC), as well as anti-aging medicine with a special interest in andropause and male hormone replacement.
Dr. Ripoll also is a Participating Urologist at the Kidney Stone Center of the Rocky Mountains — one of the premier centers for the treatment of kidney stones in the United States — and the only kidney stone center that requires a second opinion.
In addition to Dr. Ripoll’s considerable skill as a scholar, diagnostician, and surgeon, she sets herself apart from other physicians in her ability to connect with patients on an intuitive level while engaging her encyclopedic medical knowledge.
Dr. Ripoll’s dedication to providing the best possible medical care is mirrored throughout our staff. Everyone at Choices in Health is committed to helping our patients feel better and live healthier lives — That’s our passion, our specialty, and a source of tremendous satisfaction.
