I am Dr. Brian Stork, a community urologist in Muskegon, Michigan.
I practice general urology, however, I have a special interest in treating benign and malignant conditions of the kidney and prostate, urinary stone disease, and urinary incontinence.
After nearly 15 years in private practice I joined Michigan Medicine West Shore Urology. Being a member of the University of Michigan Department of Urology gives me the opportunity to participate in medical student and resident teaching, clinical research, and community service.
My current areas of research include methods of reducing gun violence in our community and the relationship between childhood trauma, or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and the development of chronic disease. My community service centers around Step Up, a non- profit, faith based program that helps children in foster care transition into adulthood.
I serve on the Board of Directors of the Michigan State Medical Society and the Clinical Practice Board of the Urology Times. I am also honored to serve as the current Chairperson of the Urology Care Foundation Public Education Council.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and beekeeping. I also enjoy writing on my patient and physician blogs and, from time to time, I write guest posts for other sites on a variety of topics. I have even authored a book for children.
My personal opinions, expressed on this site, on social media, and in my other writings, do not necessarily represent the views of the Department of Urology at the University of Michigan.
I hope you find ongoing value in visiting this site and I wish you the very best of health!
