About Me

I treat children with disorders of the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and genitalia. My particular specialties are treating children with urologic cancer, disorders of sex differentiation, complex birth defects, hypospadias, kidney stones, bladder/bowel dysfunction and incontinence, and spina bifida. My top priority is to find the most effective and least invasive treatment option for every child and every family I see. I have advanced fellowship training in robotic and minimally-invasive surgery, so I am able to offer this option to children who might benefit from a less-invasive surgery. I am a member of the American Urological Association, the Society for Pediatric Urology, the Society for Fetal Urology, and the Children's Oncology Group.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

I lead an active program in pediatric urology health services research. The goal of my research group is to make sure that every child with a urologic problem receives the best possible treatment, delivered the best possible way, at the best possible time. My research focuses on children with vesicoureteral reflux, kidney stones, spina bifida, and kidney/bladder cancers like rhabdomyosarcoma or Wilms’ tumor.
