Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Urology

Reconstructive Surgery

Feinberg urology faculty are leaders in the urologic community for the management of urethral stricture disease through our affiliated clinical sites. We have extensive experience with performing, as well as providing training on, the varied urethroplasty techniques and are actively conducting research to improve excellence in surgical outcomes.

Education

The fellows and residents are involved in related clinical research activities during their training. They participate in research to expand the understanding and treatment of patients requiring reconstruction of the genitourinary system. They work closely with the faculty in the Department of Urology to design and implement research projects, with the expectation that those projects will culminate in presentations at national meetings and publication in peer-reviewed journals.
