Thomas B. Edmunds, M.D.

Dr. Tom Edmunds

I was born here in Columbia in 1967, and was lucky enough to have a wonderful family raise me. I went to Hammond, played lots of sports, went to Davidson College, and then took a year off after Davidson to play in a talented band that played up and down the eastern USA near Charlotte. I also waited tables and was a cook for a year. I had a wonderful, maturing period.

I chose to go to MUSC, studied hard, and moved to New York for six years! Six years to be a tee-tee doctor. Oh well.

I was in a very busy training program at State University of New York, slept little, worked hard, learned a lot, took care of very sick people, operated on some horrible cancers, did kidney transplants, figured out what I enjoyed doing, and strove to be the best I could. The program had only one urology resident per year, so I was able to perform a ton of complex surgeries.

I moved to Columbia, SC right before 9/11 and joined Columbia Urological PA. I worked there for five years. I had some wonderful partners and learned so much.

I decided to go out on my own and get off the busy treadmill I was on. I opened Capitol Urology in 2005, and have never enjoyed practicing medicine more.

I’ve sub-specialized in no-scalpel vasectomies in my office (thousands of happy patients), expert diagnosis and counseling of prostate cancer, kidneys stones, and treatment of prostate enlargement (BPH),  and testicular and penile lesions. I utilize cutting edge technology and minimally invasive techniques to take care of my patients.

I have three incredible children in various stages of development.
