Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Using various animal models of bladder outlet obstruction as a representation of human prostatic disease, I am investigating how intervening with pharmacotherapy, neuromodulation, and other novel therapies may help to reverse the adverse changes in the bladder due to the obstruction.

I also am investigating new, minimally invasive treatments for post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence.

I am also investigating the role of neruomodulation in the treatment of chronic pelvic pain and IC.
