New urologist sees patients in Aitkin, Crosby

Cuyuna Regional Medical Center (CRMC) and Riverwood Healthcare Center (RHCC) are pleased to announce a new urologist, Dr. Lori Pinke, of Adult & Pediatric Urology. Dr. Pinke began seeing patients in Aitkin and Crosby the first week in July.

 “The demand for urology services has continued to grow in our community and Dr. Pinke makes a tremendous addition to the team,” said Mike Delfs, Riverwood chief operating officer. “Adult and Pediatric Urology has been an invaluable partner in bringing top quality urologic care to our area, and Dr. Pinke will help us continue to deliver the level of service our patients have come to expect.”

 Theresa Sullivan, CRMC chief operating officer adds: “At CRMC and Riverwood, our goal is to make exceptional quality health services like comprehensive urologic care available close to home.  Our partnership with Adult & Pediatric Urology has continued to grow over the last two years, and we are excited to welcome Dr. Pinke to our communities.”

Dr. Pinke has a special interest in urologic oncology and completed her urologic oncology fellowship at the Mayo Clinic. Her surgical training has included a broad range of open techniques and minimally invasive surgery, such as laparoscopy and da Vinci, for the treatment of benign and malignant urologic diseases.

“I am pleased to be serving the Aitkin and Crosby communities,” Dr. Pinke said.  “I look forward to working with patients and the healthcare staff here.”

A native of North Dakota, Dr. Pinke relocated to St. Cloud in June, after relocating from her practice in Fergus Falls. She enjoys treating a range of urologic conditions including urologic cancers, kidney stone disease, and benign prostate disease.

When not at work, Dr. Pinke enjoys playing golf, cooking and spending time with family and friends.

Dr. Pinke joins Dr. Shawn McGee and Nurse Practitioner Cindy Hauser in the urology practice serving CRMC and RHCC patients.
