Our History

With a vision to bring the best in urological care to Central Minnesota, Dr. Mathew opened the doors to Adult & Pediatric Urology in May of 1981. Over the past 30 years APU has continued to grow, building a state-of-the-art facility in Sartell, opening an additional clinic in outstate Minnesota and serving patients through 13 outreach locations.
