Brandon S. Childs, MD

Urology

Dr. Childs is joining Granger Medical Clinic after completing his residency in Boston, Massachusetts at the Lahey Hospital and Medical Center. He is a native of the Salt Lake Valley and is excited to return to raise his family in the area after being on the east coast for 10 years.

In order to provide excellent care for his patients, Dr. Childs has dedicated himself to staying up to date on the latest research, treatments, and procedures in urology. As a general urologist, he is excited to offer a wide array of procedures to his patients to treat benign prostatic enlargement, genitourinary cancers, and everything in between. Dr. Childs’ philosophy is that every patient deserves to be empowered with knowledge regarding all treatment options available to them. He is a team-player who seeks to provide the best care in all circumstances and encourages patients to be active participants in all decisions regarding their health.

Dr. Childs received extensive training in all areas of urology during his residency including extensive experience in endourology (ureteroscopy, PCNL, HoLEP), transperineal prostate biopsy, reconstructive urology, prosthetics, and robotic surgery.

He enjoys the outdoors, running, hiking, skiing, baking, and diy home projects.
