Todd Igel, M.D., is a urologist at Mayo Clinic hospital in Jacksonville, Florida whose clinical interests include benign prostatic hypertrophy along with minimally invasive BPH therapy, and laparoscopic and robotic surgery for patients with urologic conditions — specifically robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer. He is well known for performing open radical retropubic prostatectomy to treat prostate cancer, when necessary. His areas of research include early detection of prostate cancer, and developing instruments to aid in ureteroscopy.

He received his undergraduate degree (summa cum laude) from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, where he went on to earn his medical degree. He completed his general surgery internship and subsequent four years of training in urology at Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester, in Minnesota.

Dr. Igel was instrumental in developing vesicourethral anastomosis techniques utilized in radical prostatectomy. He also served as chair of the Department of Urology at Mayo Clinic hospital in Jacksonville from 2002 to 2014, and is well known as the inventor of the trans-perineal template biopsy of the prostate. This technique is now used widely throughout the world.
