Houston Methodist Urology Associates

About Me

“My goal is to provide every patient with excellent care that follows standard of care while also personalizing care to each patient’s needs. Practicing compassion, especially when it comes to urologic issues, is of the utmost importance to me. I believe in developing treatment plans with the patient to have the best outcome possible that is consistent with their values.”

Dr. Farnum completed a bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Louisiana State University. He then attended medical school at the University of Texas at Houston. He completed his residency training in urology at the same institution in the Texas Medical Center, including MD Anderson Cancer Center. From there, he joined as faculty at Baylor College of Medicine and the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center where he participated in training residents.  Not long after training residents, Dr. Farnum joined the North Cypress Urology Group which later led to him joining the Methodist Urology Associates team. 

In addition to general urologic care, Dr. Farnum is experienced in endoscopic kidney stone and enlarged prostate treatment. Dr. Farnum also specializes in laparoscopic and robotic kidney and prostate cancer surgeries.
