Dr. Glover is a top specialist in urologic medicine who has been practicing in the DC metro area for over 40 years. He has successfully treated thousands of patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. A former clinical professor of urology at George Washington University for 30 years as well as former president of both the Virginia Urologic Society and Washington Urologic Society, Dr. Glover has been a consistent leader in bringing new innovations in prostate cancer treatment into the Washington area for decades. Long troubled by the severe complications typical of of radical prostatectomies, he sought out safer less invasive effective treatments and was the first to introduce minimally invasive techniques of Cryo Ablation and HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) into the area.
He received his medical training at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in 1965, followed by Walter Reed General Hospital in Washington, D.C. As former Special Forces (Green Beret), Dr. Glover was posted to the First Special Forces Group on operations across Southeast Asia, where he was promoted to Group Surgeon. At Ft. Devens Army Hospital in Massachusetts, he received a special commendation for his activities in that post as chief of the emergency department and department of hospital clients.
Dr. Glover served on the board of the American Association of Clinical Urologists for eight years and is a past president of the Virginia Urologic Society and the D.C. Urologic Society. Throughout his years of dedication to the field, he has advocated for cutting-edge techniques and noninvasive or minimally invasive procedures to improve care for his patients, including microwave therapy for prostatic carcinoma and renal carcinoma, and cryoablation for benign obstruction. He has also pioneered microsurgical vasectomy reversal, endourology, and transrectal ultrasound prostate needle biopsy techniques.
