Clinical:

  • We are seeking a candidate with a record of distinguished accomplishments, expertise in pediatric urological surgery, proficiency in clinical care, administration and a clear commitment to student and resident education. The candidate would join a department recognized for its clinical and research excellence in pediatric urology. The division is committed to providing northern Florida with comprehensive pediatric urological care, and the highest quality surgical services for all genitourinary conditions in children, including penile abnormalities, hypospadias, hydroceles, hernias, undescended testicles, vesicoureteral reflux, pediatric stone disease, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, and all causes of hydronephrosis.  In addition, we provide experienced care for the more complex genitourinary conditions that require surgical reconstruction, including disorders of sexual differentiation, bladder exstrophy and epispadias, cloacal anomalies, and the surgical management of neuropathic bladder.  We also offer minimally invasive, state of the art treatment modalities for children with urological abnormalities, including endoscopy, laparoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery. Our division maintains an NIH funded, basic science research program that is focused on determining the mechanisms of irreversible kidney injury that occur as a consequence of urinary tract obstruction, and discovering new therapeutic strategies to potentially reverse or ameliorate this process.
