Dr. Daniel Belew, urologist of Georgia Urology, joins the Weekly Check-Up Atlanta on May 9.
Daniel Belew, M.D. graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting and later with a Master of Accountancy. After graduation, he began shadowing a urologist, sparking a desire to connect with patients on a personal level and be of service to others. This led him to eventually go back to school and graduate with a doctor of medicine from the Medical College of Georgia where he also completed his general surgery internship and urology residency.
He is a member of several professional organizations including the Medical Association of Georgia; the American Urological Association; and the Rinker-Witherington Urologic Society. Additionally, Dr. Belew has co-authored a variety of publications, and he has given presentations at professional conferences throughout the country.
Dr. Belew specializes in general urology including the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia and kidney stones as well as the treatment of prostate cancer and performing robotic surgery. Additional areas of interest include the placement of inflatable penile prostheses, artificial urinary sphincters, and male slings. “In urology, patients can see life-changing results,” he explains. “In many cases, they can become more active, they can get out of the house, and they can spend more time with their family. Playing a part in that keeps me passionate about my work.”
As a native metro Atlantan, Dr. Belew appreciates the opportunity to serve patients in the area and be a part of his hometown healthcare community. When he’s not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, golfing, and cheering on University of Georgia football.
