Dr. Edward Wright is an assistant professor of urology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He serves as the Director of Neurourology and Chief of Urology at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Dr. Wright earned his M.D. from Dartmouth Medical School in New Hampshire. He completed his residency in urology at The Presbyterian Hospital in the City of New York and performed a fellowship in Urogynecology at Duke University School of Medicine.

Dr. Wright is a member of the American Urologic Association and the Mid-Atlantic Section of American Urologic Association as well as the Society for Urodynamics and Female Urology.
