The one year Fellowship in Endourology, Laparoscopy, and Robotic surgery provides a very comprehensive training environment in all areas of minimally invasive procedures. We are a high volume robotic and laparoscopic center. Our program was one of the first programs adopting the laparoscopic radical prostatectomy in 2000. We have a very successful laparoscopic program which includes: donor nephrectomy (11 years), radical nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, adrenalectomy, and cryoablation. We were involved in the FDA trials with the Zeus Robotic platform and early adopters with robotics in general. We have a successful Davinci program including: radical prostatectomy, partial nephrectomy, sacrocolpopexy , and pyeloplasty.
Our program is located in the heart of the stone belt and as such the fellow has exposure to a variety of simple and complex stone cases. In addition to having access to the latest ureteroscopic techniques, the fellow will learn how to perform percutaneous renal access. We perform our own metabolic evaluations and the fellow will learn the latest in medical management of stone disease.
Our fellows have been very productive academically. In the last 8 years, our program has placed first, second, third, and fourth in the Endourology Fellowship Essay Contest. We have a large research department supporting 40 clinical trials. We have a state of the art outcome database. Some of this research has been cited in USA Today and Reuters in addition to being accepted for publication in the Journals of Urology and Endourology. We have a nationally recognized Proteonomics lab with numerous projects available for fellow participation.
Finally, our program has seven fellowship trained urological oncologists and endourologists. Our fellows are part of the faculty and run a half day clinic once a week. Additionally, they have limited call responsibilities (on average one or two weekdays per month and 5-6 weekends) during their one year fellowship.
