E. Charles Osterberg III, M.D., is a board-certified urologist with fellowship training in male genitourinary reconstruction. He joined Dell Medical School as an assistant professor of surgery in 2016. Osterberg specializes in reconstructive urology, genitourinary trauma, prosthetics, and robotic surgery. He is currently the Chief of Urology at Dell Seton Medical Center, Dell Med’s main teaching hospital, where he and his team have performed hundreds of complex urologic reconstruction and urethral stricture surgeries.

After receiving his undergraduate and medical degrees from Northwestern University, Osterberg completed his urology residency at Cornell New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City where he trained with world experts who pioneered the field of DaVinci ® robotic surgery.

Osterberg completed a fellowship in genitourinary reconstruction and trauma with world-renowned reconstructive urologists Benjamin N. Breyer, M.D., FAS, FACS, and Jack W. McAninch, M.D., FACS, at the University of California, San Francisco. He developed a passion for treating complications from prior urologic surgery, such as urethral strictures, radiation injury, genital lymphedema, stress incontinence, erectile dysfunction, urinary fistulas, voiding dysfunction, and penile curvature.

Osterberg became the first fellowship-trained male reconstructive urologist in Central Texas to focus exclusively on male urethral stricture disease. He also has a special interest in penile implant surgery, Peyronie’s disease, robotic ureteral reconstruction, and complications of prostate cancer treatment, including bladder neck contractures, rectal fistulas, and incontinence (artificial urinary sphincter placement).

Osterberg has authored over 85 peer-reviewed publications and several textbook chapters and has been invited to give several national and international lectures on urologic reconstruction. He serves as a member of the American Urological Association and the Society for Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons. He is a diplomat to the American Board of Urology and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). He serves as an expert reviewer for the Journal of Urology and Urology, the official journal for the society of urologic reconstruction.
