    Personal Statement

    My passion and expertise lie in restoring a patient's ability to urinate, store urine without leakage, and/or function sexually. Addressing these challenging problems often leads to profound benefits for both the patient and their partner. The procedures that I perform are elective surgeries and I do not believe in telling a patient that they must have an operation. It is my role to educate the patient about the problem and about the available treatment options. We can then make an informed decision together in order to improve their quality of life.
