Research Interests

I am an investigator in a number of clinical outcome studies specifically involving hypospadias, undescended testicles and patients with hydronephrosis. I have a long term research interest in the clinical problems associated with patients born with imperforate anus and work closely with the Pediatric Surgeons at The Children's Hospital to provide comprehensive multidisciplinary care to these patients.
