Urology San Antonio physician Juan A. Reyna is the new president of the board for the Large Urology Group Practice Association, which represents 121 large urology group practices and 20 percent of the nation’s urologists.

Reyna was installed in the position during the LUGPA annual membership meeting in Chicago earlier this month.

“As a founding member of LUGPA, I’ve seen the impressive work that’s been done by the organization and its members,” said Reyna. “I look forward to building upon LUGPA’s successes as we work to support the growth of our member practices, collaborate with other specialty associations and enhance patient education.”

Reyna is the founder of Urology San Antonio, a urology practice with 27 physicians, 200 employees, eight urology clinics and a cancer treatment facility. He served as CEO of the business for 30 years before stepping down from the post in 2012.

Reyna and his wife, Joni, are the creators of Los Padres, a San Antonio-based nonprofit dedicated to improving men’s health by creating community awareness about prostate cancer, particularly the need for early detection. The couple was integral to the success of San Antonio’s inaugural ZERO Prostate Cancer Run in September 2013, raising $103,000 for prostate cancer awareness.

Reyna attended San Antonio College and the University of Texas Pharmacy School. He completed medical school and urology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and surgical residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He serves as a clinical assistant professor in the division of urology at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Reyna is board-certified through the American Board of Urology.
