WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I’m a reconstructive urologic surgeon who also cares for cancer survivors. Cancer survivorship care focuses on providing patients and families relief from the symptoms, pain and distress that may develop after and during cancer therapy. I find it gratifying to help a patient that has a significant problem and increase their quality of life. I decided I wanted to go into medicine while in high school after feeling a sense of duty to serve those around me; this was the same calling that drew me to service in the military for 23 years. I came to Duke after my active duty service in the Army was completed in 2010 and since then, my family has really become a “Duke family.” We regularly attend Duke Football games and other sporting and social events. My wife also works here, my kids have expressed interest in attending college here and we all regularly wear the Duke blue colors on weekends.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on problems within reconstructive urology and genitourinary cancer survivorship. I am particularly interested in increasing quality of life of patients who have survived various types of cancers that may cause problems with their urinary tract such as colorectal cancer, gynecologic cancer, prostate cancer and other types of malignancies. I recently was awarded a Movember Foundation grant for the development of cancer survivorship care plans for men surviving after definitive treatment for prostate cancer. I collaborate closely with other researchers from different departments including the colorectal surgery service at Duke, radiation oncology, plastic surgery and medical oncology. I also have a vigorous working relationship within a basic sciences laboratory where we are developing different prevention strategies and treatment options for radiation damage to the bladder.
