Personal Biography

My practice is limited to the care of infants and children with urologic problems. I place a special emphasis on family centered care. In other words, it is important to me that my patient's family understands the diagnosis and my recommendations. I want them to feel a part of the treatment team. I view my role as an advisor, not a dictator. Roughly 30% of my practice is dedicated to the care of complex anatomic and urologic problems related to spina bifida, neurogenic bladder, and complications of bladder exstrophy. I am the director of the extramural pediatric urology residency program at Mayo Clinic and the director of urology for the spina bifida programs at Gillette Children's and Essentia Health. I completed medical school at Stanford University, and a general surgery internship and urology residency at Oregon Health Sciences University and a pediatric urologic surgery fellowship at the Mayo Clinic. I am currently the Director of Pediatric Urology Residency Training for the Mayo Clinic Urology Residency Training for the Mayo Clinic Urology Residents at Children's of Minnesota.
