Dr. Eric Uhlman

Dr. Eric Uhlman knew when he was a child that he wanted to go into the medical field. His father worked as a physician, once letting him observe one of his surgeries when Dr. Uhlman was a young teen. It was this moment that inspired him to become a surgeon.

At first, Dr. Uhlman was inter­est­ed in gen­er­al surgery. He went on to attend med­ical school at Tem­ple Uni­ver­si­ty School of Med­i­cine in Philadel­phia. Through his edu­ca­tion and his work expe­ri­ences, Dr. Uhlman found that he was drawn to urology.

Urol­o­gists are spe­cial­ized sur­geons, focused on treat­ing dis­eases in the uri­nary tract and the male repro­duc­tive system. 

When there is a prob­lem in your uri­nary tract, your life is real­ly on hold until that prob­lem is fixed,” says Dr. Uhlman. I find urol­o­gy sat­is­fy­ing because it gives me an oppor­tu­ni­ty to quick­ly improve the qual­i­ty of a patient’s life.” He spe­cial­izes in treat­ing patients who expe­ri­ence prob­lems uri­nat­ing, uri­nary tract infec­tions, vasec­tomies and rever­sals, male fer­til­i­ty issues, uro­log­ic can­cers and com­mon pedi­atric uri­nary troubles. 

Dr. Uhlman recent­ly moved out west from Get­tys­burg, Pa. to join our health­care team in the Sur­gi­cal clin­ic at Ivin­son Med­ical Group. Pick­ing up and mov­ing to Laramie wasn’t intim­i­dat­ing to me,” says Dr. Uhlman. I always want­ed to go out west and I was ready to be out of the big metro area.” 

He pre­vi­ous­ly vis­it­ed the region while on hunt­ing trips and liked the con­trast of Laramie to Get­tys­burg. The com­mu­ni­ty pro­vides the per­fect place for his many hob­bies includ­ing bee keep­ing, gar­den­ing and fly fish­ing. I have a zil­lion hob­bies,” says Dr. Uhlman. Cur­rent­ly, he is pass­ing the win­ter months by build­ing a sauna. 

Not only does Dr. Uhlman enjoy liv­ing Laramie, he also enjoys his work at Ivin­son. I love that I have the abil­i­ty to get patients on my sched­ule imme­di­ate­ly,” says Dr. Uhlman. Every­one we inter­act­ed with while tour­ing the hos­pi­tal real­ly sold us on Ivinson.” 

Thank you, Dr. Uhlman, for mak­ing Laramie your home! You are a great provider to work with and are a won­der­ful asset to the Sur­gi­cal Clin­ic at Ivin­son Med­ical Group.
