I completed my undergraduate studies, medical school, and Urology residency at the University of Florida prior to joining the Department of Urology as assistant professor. I completed a fellowship in genitourinary trauma, reconstruction, and prosthetic urology at Washington University in St. Louis, MO and am proud to return to Gainesville as a “quadruple Gator” to help our community and beyond.

As a reconstructive urologist, my main goal is to improve the quality of life of patients who may suffer from medical conditions such as trauma to the urinary tract, stricture disease of the urinary tract, Peyronie’s disease, erectile dysfunction, and urinary incontinence.

Urethral stricture disease is the most common indication for urethral surgery and we use several techniques to repair strictures including, urethral dilation, urethrotomy with steroid injection, urethroplasty, and perineal urethrostomy.

For men who have problems with penile curvature (Peyronie’s disease), we offer medical therapy as well as surgical therapy including penile plication, plaque incision/excision and grafting, and penile prosthesis placement.

We offer several treatment options for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction including medical therapy with PDE-5 inhibitors, vacuum erection devices, urethral suppositories, penile injection therapy, and penile prosthesis placement.

Urinary incontinence is an extremely debilitating problem that men may experience after prostatectomy or surgery for prostate enlargement. We offer correction of stress urinary incontinence with surgical implantation of male urethral slings or artificial urinary sphincters.

We also specialize in surgery to repair complex rectourinary fistulae that can occur as a result of surgery or radiation therapy to the pelvis and can also offer construction of neobladders or continent catheterizable bladders.
