Earlier to 1970 all the urological work used to be managed by the general surgeons. The pioneers in development of the urology in A.P. were Dr. A.V.S. Reddy, Dr. Chengil Roy and Dr. A. Ranganadha Rao the main burnt and odds were faced by them to separate the urology from general surgeons. There was a speciality came into existence.

As the popularity of department started increasing public started approaching to help the department using their good will with the help of Dr.K.B.Krishna Mohan the then superintendent. We could get artificial kidney donated by rotary club of Kurnool to Urology department. Which was inaugurated by his Excellency the governor of A.P. Sri Mohanlal Sukhadia in March 1976(03.03.76). Efficiency of the departments further got spread both at Kurnool and outside due to the successful recovery of gardinal poisoning and snake bite patients by using dialysis machines. Which looked like a miracle to the public and the news came in the papers resulting in the visit of V.VIP’s to the department to see the recovered patients and machine.

The urology ward was shifted from Susrutha Bhavan to the super speciality block with the effort from Dr. G.V. Krishna i/c professor of urology and Dr. K.Sitharamaiah Assistant professor of Urology on Vijaya Dasami day (09.10.2001) with the permission of the then superintendent Dr. Ramachandra.

Mr. Sai Prasad who was the collector at that time was kind enough to sanction nine lakh rupees to the purchase of endo – urological and lithotripsy machine for the urology department.

Now the department is running by Dr A Bhagavan, M.Ch; MRCS as Prof. of Urology and Head of the Department & Dr. K Sitharamaiah as Associate professor of Urology.
