Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a board certified urologist with a subspecialty certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (urogynecology). After obtaining a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry on a full academic scholarship from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, I attended the University of Michigan Medical School. I then completed an internship in general surgery, residency in urology, and research fellowship at the University of Michigan Health System. At Michigan, I served as Chief Resident her final year and trained under Dr. Edward McGuire, one of the founders of the subspecialty of female urology. I am an associate professor of urology and the residency program director in the Department of Urology at Feinberg School of Medicine. I am a recognized expert in voiding dysfunction and incontinence, having performed sacral neuromodulation and botulinum toxin injections for urinary leakage procedures since 2004. I was awarded research funding to investigate the effects of sacral neuromodulation on urinary and bowel symptoms and pain, and has published numerous peer-reviewed articles in this area. I also perform minimally invasive procedures for stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, including robotic surgery as well as native-tissue and mesh slings. I am the urologic director of the multi-disciplinary adult spina bifida clinic at the Rehabilitation Institue of Chicago and have extensive experience treating both men and women with neurogenic bladder. I am a founding member of the American Urological Association Working Group on Congenitalism and have published extensively on the needs and outcomes of this patient population. I manage adults with many other congenital genitourinary conditions, including cloacal exstrophy, sacral agenesis, urogenital sinus conditions, vaginal agenesis/atresia, and disorders of sexual differentiation. Additionally, I specialize in the treatment of urinary symptoms related to spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurologic conditions which affect urination. I am a respected clinician with surgical experience in complex reconstructive procedures, including bladder augmentation, mitrofanoff/monti procedures (catheterizable channels), ureteral reconstruction for ureteral strictures or injury including robotic ureteral reimplant, boari flap, psoas hitch, and ileal ureter construction for extensive ureteral strictures from radiation therapy. I also treat genitourinary fistulas, including vesicovaginal (between bladder and vagaina), ureterovaginal (between the ureter and vagina), and enterovesical (between bowel and bladder). I regularly travel to Africa on women’s health mission trips to repair genitourinary fistulas in Rwanda.
