St. Luke’s Hospital welcomes new urologist

St. Luke’s Hospital welcomes Barry H. Bodie, MD, FACS, to St. Luke’s Urology Associates, a new specialty practice recently added to the St. Luke’s network of healthcare services. Formerly the medical director of urology with Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, Dr. Bodie is the new full-time urologist at St. Luke’s.

Dr. Bodie will treat all ages from pediatric to geriatric. In addition to urinary incontinence and overactive bladder, he will address issues with kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra as well as the male reproductive tract and prostate. Kidney stone management and treatment are also part of his areas of expertise.

“We are extremely excited about our new relationship with Dr. Bodie and look forward to expanding our urologic care to a much-needed full-time practice,” said Lynn Hensley, VP of ambulatory services and marketing. “Trained at the Cleveland Clinic, his skill and knowledge offer our community the advanced level of care expected from a large, academic medical center.”

Dr. Bodie is certified by the American Board of Urology and holds memberships in several medical associations including the American Medical Association; American Urological Association; Southern Medical Association; and Southeastern Section, American Urological Association. He completed his medical degree at the Medical University of South Carolina and residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

“Since urology is such a broad specialty, recruiting a full-time physician with the expertise of Dr. Bodie will have a significant impact on our area,” said Michelle Fortune, CEO. “Urinary incontinence profoundly affects the well-being and quality of life of many individuals over the age of 60 who struggle daily. We are excited to be able to provide an exceptional service, close to home that helps address this challenge.”

St. Luke’s Urology Associates is located in Suite 3B at St. Luke’s Hospital Medical Office Park, next to St. Luke’s Hospital. Beginning July 1, 2020, you may call 828-894-3230 for information. Prior to July 1, call 828-894-0645 and leave your contact information for a call back.
