Improving Outcomes Through Urological Surgery Research

Our urology surgery research team is focused on advancing the field of urology through basic (translational-bench to bedside) and clinical research. We’re also vested in evaluating and tracking outcomes in the pre- and post-operative stages of urologic care as well as the process of quality improvement and self-evaluation.

Performing nearly 6,000 urologic-related procedures annually, our research team is committed to advancing the curve of medical technology and expanding the capabilities of minimally invasive procedures.

Our current areas of research include:

  • Translational efforts to determine responses to intravesical therapy for bladder cancer as well as why some patients don’t respond to chemotherapy before bladder removal
  • Clinical research efforts to reduce pain and downtime after surgery as well as complications by following enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols
  • Evaluating new laser platforms for urological stone disease treatment
  • Developing less-invasive incontinence treatments

Urological Conditions Studied

Our highly trained, board-certified specialists conduct studies across a broad spectrum of urological conditions. From pre-op to post-op, our team looks at the entire patient experience to investigate what can be improved with clinical and outcomes research, including:

  • Female urology and pelvic health
  • Incontinence
  • Kidney stone disease
  • Neuro-urology
  • Reconstructive urology
  • Urologic oncology

Utilizing state-of-the-art surgical facilities and technologies, in conjunction with our overall infrastructure and focus, our skilled research team provides patient-centric quality care and seamlessly participates in research studies.
