Urology Research Program

The Division of Urology performs basic science and clinical research in area such as robotic urological surgery, prenatal hydronephrosis, vesicoureteral reflux, urinary tract infections, neurogenic bladder in spina bifida, bladder tissue engineering, outcomes of hypospadias repair, and pathologic bladder degeneration. Specific research on the outcomes of hypospadias repair involves a multi-institutional randomized trial (PROPHY Study) to investigate if preventive antibiotics reduce infection and other problems after hypospadias repair. Other research is focused on gaining insights into the healthcare needs of adolescents and young adults with a difference in sex development. Learn more about the Urology Research Program.
