Professionally, Dr. Kaspar practices general urology, but has a special interest in female urology and incontinence. He was one of the first implanters in the state for interstim therapy for overactive bladder and has also been on the cutting edge of incontinent procedures. Dr. Kaspar is one of only 125 urologists nationwide with the sub specialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS). He is a member of the American Urologic Association, NC Medical Society, Society of Female Urology, and Wake County Medical Society. He also specializes in treatments for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) for men. He was the first physician to perform the UroLift® procedure in an office setting in North Carolina. The UroLift treatment is a revolutionary, minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate, or BPH, that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.

Dr. Kaspar is married and has three children. He enjoys spending time with his family, playing tennis, working out, and following his children’s activities.
