Paul J. Smith, MD, received his formal education in Houston, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry from Rice University, and earning his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine. He completed his urology residency at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Smith joined Memorial Urology Associates in 2013. 

Dr. Smith treats most urologic conditions, such as voiding dysfunction, low testosterone, erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease, but his practice focuses primarily on robotic surgery & urologic oncology, benign prostatic enlargement (BPH) and stone disease. 

  • Robotic surgery & Urologic Oncology: Dr. Smith offers advanced techniques in robotic radical prostatectomy with each patient receiving an individualized surgical approach in order to achieve the best outcome for both prostate cancer control and preservation of normal urinary and sexual functioning.  Dr. Smith has also been a leader in expanding the usage of robotics in urology in his community.  At both Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center and Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, Dr. Smith introduced robotic simple prostatectomy as a safe and effective technique in the treatment of an extremely enlarged benign prostate.  He has also made robotic partial nephrectomy, or removal of localized kidney cancer, a routine case in this community setting performing many such procedures at Memorial Hermann Memorial City and Memorial Hermann Katy.  
  • Enlarged Prostate (BPH): While many urinary complaints are effectively managed by medication, Dr. Smith also offers the most advanced surgical treatments available, including minimally invasive outpatient procedures such as Urolift and Greenlight laser prostatectomy.  And as stated above, Dr. Smith performed the first robotic simple prostatectomy at both Memorial Hermann Memorial City and Memorial Hermann Katy hospitals.    
  • Kidney Stones (Nephrolithiasis): Dr. Smith performs all types of stone surgery including extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, digital flexible ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrostolithotomy.  After the removal of bothersome stones, Dr. Smith focuses on individualized strategies for prevention of further stone formation.

Dr. Smith believes in an evidence-based practice of urology delivered with compassion.  He appreciates the sensitive nature of urologic disease and therefore strives to deliver care with grace and understanding.  In his leisure, Dr. Smith enjoys spending time with his wife, Dr. Neda Nosrati (cofounder of Village Dermatology) and their three children, playing the guitar and piano, exercising and traveling..
