We’re passionate about helping you understand your options and using our expertise to improve your health and quality of life.

Our Difference

Complex Reconstruction Expertise

Genitourinary reconstruction is always a delicate procedure. Our expertise extends to the most high-risk and complex reconstructions. We use a collaborative approach to work closely with all the specialists on your care team.

Full Range of Techniques

We use the full range of available methods for urologic reconstruction. Our treatment options include artificial urinary sphincters, mesh complication repair, pelvic floor restoration, penile implants, plastic surgery and skin grafts.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Our state-of-the-art robotic procedures allow us the precision needed to protect your nerves during surgery. These minimally invasive procedures use small incisions and have shorter recovery times than other methods.


About Reconstructive Urology

Reconstructive urology involves surgery to repair your genitourinary tract to restore genital and urinary function.

Common Conditions We Treat:

Bladder Fistulas

Bladder fistulas are abnormal openings in your bladder.

Congenital Abnormalities

Congenital abnormalities are structure problems that were present at birth.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction can make it hard to achieve or maintain an erection. Reconstructive surgery can often correct erectile dysfunction when it stems from structural problems.

Injuries to the Genitourinary Tract

Injuries to your genitals or urinary system may occur from accidents, cancer treatment, sports or surgery. They can also happen as complications of diseases or procedures.

Pelvic Floor Disorders

Your pelvic floor supports your bladder, reproductive organs and other structures in your lower abdomen. Pelvic floor disorders can cause incontinence, pain, pelvic organ prolapse and other symptoms.

Urethral Strictures

Urethral strictures happen when scar tissue forms in your urethra (the tube that carries urine from your bladder out of your body). This damage is typically due to an injury. The stricture narrows your urethra, often causing urinary problems.

Urinary Incontinence

Incontinence may cause you to leak urine by accident or have frequent or sudden urges to urinate even if your bladder isn’t full.


Reconstructive Urology Services We Offer

We have expertise in performing all types of urologic reconstruction. From removing blockages to repairing organs, our urologic surgery team has a solution that will work for you.

Examples of our services include:

Artificial Sphincter Implant

A urinary sphincter implant (prosthesis) replaces the muscles around your urethra that let you decide when to urinate. This device treats urinary incontinence and prevent urine leakage.

Bladder Reconstruction

We perform bladder reconstruction to correct damage or problems caused by congenital conditions, injury, radiation treatment and tumor removal.

Fistula Repair

We specialize in repairing fistulae that affect the bladder, vagina or other genitourinary structures.

Genital Reconstruction

Cancer surgery, injuries or conditions such as Peyronie’s disease can damage your genitals. We use a variety of techniques, including plastic surgery and robotic-assisted procedures, to restore genital appearance and function.

Pelvic Support and Prolapse Repair

We provide options for pelvic slings and other pelvic support devices. We also perform reconstructive surgery for pelvic prolapse.

Penile Implant

A penile implant is an inflatable or movable device placed inside the penis that helps a man achieve an erection. We offer three different penile implant options for treating erectile dysfunction.

Post-Cancer Reconstruction

Cancer surgery and radiation can damage organs. After cancer treatment, our specialists can repair all types of damage to genitourinary structures.

Urethra Reconstruction

We perform scar tissue removal and urethra reconstruction for urethral strictures. We also offer a procedure which reconstructs or compresses the urinary sphincter to help with bladder control.
