About Us

It is our mission to provide the highest quality, compassionate and skilled urological care to enable people to stay healthy and be well.

We work in partnership with individuals in crafting a personalized, focused approach to address urological conditions by taking into consideration each patient’s physical, spiritual and emotional well-being.

The surgeons of Urology Group of Athens are on the medical staffs of Athens and area hospitals and can perform surgeries in these facilities as well as in the accredited and technically advanced surgical suite conveniently located at Athena Urology Surgery Center.

Our physician team has strong local roots and operates “high-touch, high-tech” with some of the most unique leading-edge technology in the state – both Dr. Blakenship and Dr. Catherine Schwender are certified in robotic surgery procedures.

In addition to its Athens headquarters conveniently located inside the loop on Tallassee Rd./Oglethorpe Ave. at Exit 15, the physicians of Urology Group of Athens meet the urological needs of residents of Northeast Georgia with offices in Bethlehem/Winder, Royston, and Athens. All physicians are board certified.
