Urologic Trauma Fellowship
The fellowship program in Urologic Trauma, Reconstruction, and Prosthetics in UT Southwestern’s Department of Urology, founded in 2008, is a one-year clinical program designed for post-residency subspecialty training. This is the only Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons verified fellowship program worldwide and offers only two slots per year.
Clinical training encompasses all aspects of male genitourinary reconstruction, including urethral reconstruction, Peyronie’s disease, male incontinence and erectile dysfunction, ureteral reconstruction, and repair of complex genital deformities.
Many cases involve a multidisciplinary care team with urologic oncologists and colorectal, plastic, and burn surgeons. The prosthetic cases focus on erectile dysfunction and incontinence associated with prostate cancer survivorship.
The Level I trauma center at Parkland Memorial Hospital provides myriad complex and unique genitourinary trauma cases. An annual one-week reconstructive urology outreach experience in Honduras is included.
Ample clinical research opportunities are available, which typically result in numerous publications per year and numerous presentations at local, regional, and national meetings. Time commitment during the fellowship is approximately 80 percent clinical and 20 percent research.
