About Council for Urological Interests

The Council for Urological Interests (CUI) is a 501 c (6) non-profit organization created to monitor and protect the interests of active urologists, and to educate policy makers about the patient centric benefits about which this important physician group care…


Following in the footsteps of its now defunct predecessor, The American Lithotripsy Society, CUI founders recognized the need for vigilance in an ever changing health care landscape.Founded in 2007 by the leaders of the lithotripsy industry, CUI’s Board represents a large swath of the active, non-academic urologists in the U.S..  Additionally, these industry leaders employ hundreds of dedicated lithotripsy nurses and lithotripsy technologists who provide their expertise and experience towards superior clinical results on a daily basis.  Together these doctors, their allied personnel, and their patients are the beneficiaries of CUI’s efforts.

Because of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’s (CMS’s) twenty-five year history of periodically attacking the foundational principles of physician ownership in general and the lithotripsy industry in particular, CUI has been diligent in both actively educating policy makers and in aggressively advocating for its membership. Where necessary, CUI has not hesitated to use the court system to help protect its membership from seemingly arbitrary and capricious governmental encroachment.

As a group, urologists have introduced countless innovative technologies into clinical practice, thereby improving outcomes and quality of life for millions of patients. Importantly, these same innovations, brought to market by practicing urologists, have saved the U.S. taxpayer millions of dollars.

Today, CUI stands ready to educate anyone who questions the value its members provide to the medical community.  Let’s not forget the important contribution that urology physician ownership has made to the patients.
