Dr. Scott Miller of Georgia Urology, President of ProstAware

Scott Miller, MD arrived in Atlanta in 1995 and quickly established himself in the medical community as an expert and colleague ready to help other healthcare providers and patients alike.

As the state’s first urologic laparoscopist, he soon became a known advocate for the reduced invasiveness, faster healing and minimized complications inherent in the “Band-Aid surgery” approach. Whether teaching other surgeons from across town or around the world how to perform these techniques, or using the same methods to get patients out of the hospital and back on their feet sooner, Dr. Miller has a consistent philosophy: focus solely on the special needs of laparoscopic urologic surgery patients and perfect his techniques in order to deliver the best possible care. He currently has one of the largest and most diverse experiences in laparoscopic and robotic urology in the Southeast.

Dr. Miller is an active member of many professional societies including the American Urological Association, the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, and the Endourological Society. He has been Board Certified by the American Board of Urology since 1997. Dr. Miller graduated from the Medical College of Georgia and completed his urologic residency at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
