I listen to my patients and their families. I want to understand what is important to them, so we can work together toward a common goal. I believe in an individualized approach to care and shared decision-making.



I listen to my patients and their families. I want to understand what is important to them, so we can work together toward a common goal. I believe in an individualized approach to care and shared decision-making.

As a pediatric urologist, I care for patients with all types of genitourinary problems. I have expertise in complex genitourinary reconstruction, minimally invasive surgery, fertility preservation and urologic oncology.

I have a particular interest in finding innovative approaches to surgical care, such as using minimally invasive techniques and care pathways to improve the quality of recovery.

I was inspired to become a pediatric urologist by the opportunity to care for patients with a wide variety of genitourinary problems from birth. The ability to care for them from birth into adulthood allows for me to have a significant impact on their lives. I also enjoy the reconstructive nature of surgery.

My research focuses on long-term outcomes and quality improvement in surgical care. One of my current projects is the implementation of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) in patients undergoing surgery on the urinary tract. ERAS is a care pathway that focuses on a team-based approach and the use of the best available evidence to standardize their care before, during and after surgery. We continuously track our outcomes and adjust the care pathway to allow for improvement over time. Another project involves an investigational protocol of harvesting and freezing testicular tissue (testicular tissue cryopreservation) for fertility preservation in patients who are at risk of infertility from radiation and/or chemotherapy but cannot provide a semen specimen.

As a co-director of the Comprehensive Care and Fertility Preservation Program, our team was honored to receive the 2017 Clinical Care Achievement Award at Cincinnati Children's.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy cooking, exploring new restaurants, and playing sports including hockey and golf.
