Summary

  • I am a urologist / urogynecologist specializing in pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at UC San Diego Health. My clinical interests include pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence in both women and men, voiding dysfunction, urodynamic studies, and lower urinary tract conditions caused by neurologic disorders. As a surgeon I perform robotic, vaginal, endoscopic and open surgical procedures to treat these varied conditions. I also have a specialized transitional Urology clinic for men and women who were born with urologic conditions like spina bifida, bladder exstrophy, and cerebral palsy.
