Fellowship in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery

The primary goal of the Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery fellowship is to provide fellows with advanced training in the surgical and medical care of patients with pelvic floor disorders. We also provide an in-depth experience in clinical research sufficient to allow the pursuit of an academic career within Urogynecology and Reconstructive Surgery.

Our program benefits from collaborative, collegial relationships between the Departments of Urology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Colorectal Surgery, Rehabilitation Medicine, and Gastroenterology. This training includes a large surgical volume and a diverse range of clinical experiences, including extensive training in vaginal surgery and both 'straight stick' and robotic-assisted laparoscopic approaches. Fellows' broad-based exposure to clinical Urogynecology and Reconstructive Surgery is marked by progressive responsibility both in the clinic and hospital settings. Our Fellows work with six board certified URPS specialists with areas of expertise in colorectal surgery, gastroenterology, and pelvic pain.
