Athens Area Urology, P.C. (AAU) was founded in June 2013 by three of Athens most experienced and respected urologists, Dr. Mark Ellison, Dr. Gary Walton, and Dr. Robert Byrne. Together they have an extensive practice history in Athens with a combined 60 years of urology in Athens, GA. Dr. Matthew Steele was selected to join the practice in July of 2015 and has further expanded our robotic surgical practice. Dr. Clower began working with AAU in 2017 and sees patients primarily on Friday. Dr. Samuel Belknap was recruited to the practice and began seeing patients in Athens in 2018. Our providers offer compassionate urologic care with a foundation of clinical expertise and experience in general urology, female pelvic reconstruction, urological oncology, kidney stone disease, robotic surgery, and pediatric urology.
