Recent Departmental Achievements
LSU Urology Champions Robotic Surgery at Children's Hospital
Our pediatric urologists are proud to announce the availability of robotic urologic surgery at Children's Hospital New Orleans. After several years of performing pediatric robotic surgery at our partner institution, Touro Infirmary, the pediatric urology faculty championed the purchase of a DaVinci robot dedicated to the sole use of robotic surgery in children. Through this acquisition, Children's Hospital has the only pediatric-dedicated robotic program in the state of Louisiana and the Gulf South. To date our surgeons have performed a wide array of robotic cases including pyeloplasty, ureteral reimplantation, partial and heminephrectomies, and creation of catheterizable channels. We look forward to expanding this service to meet the region's needs.
Welcome to the department of urology website. Over the last several years we have expanded our faculty as well as added clinic locations to better serve our patients. Our faculty includes specialists in pediatric urology, infertility, erectile dysfunction, urologic oncology as well as female urology and voiding dysfunction. We are currently providing inpatient and outpatient care at the following clinical locations: East Jefferson General Hospital, Touro Infirmary, River Parishes Hospital, LSU Interim Hospital and Children's Hospital. Our department continues to partner with our community medical centers to enhance urological clinical care pathways in all areas of urology. We have embraced the LSU mission of having a strong presence in the community, and we will continue to expand these programs.
Our residency program, which is combined with Ochsner Medical Center, has also grown in concert with our substantial clinical growth. We are fully accredited, and our didactics and multi-disciplinary conferences are now occurring at all clinical sites. Our residents have become active participants in state, regional, and national meetings as our research programs continue to grow. After residency, many of our graduates remain in the state or pursue academic fellowship programs. Our fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive SUrgery has successfully graduated gynecologists and urologists, pursuing advanced training in this complex reconstructive specialty . This fellowship has been ACGME accredited for urologists and gynecologists to complete post-graduate fellowship training. Our faculty continues to publish in the field, and pursue basic research in the areas of voiding dysfunction and and urologic oncology.
As we continue to grow, we will remain focused adhering to the mission of education, research, and patient care, which is the essence of the LSU School of Medicine.
Please come back often and visit the site to monitor our progress. I would love to hear from all interested faculty and alumni on how we can grow to serve your needs. This is an exciting time for all of us as our department continues unprecedented growth. I am honored to represent the outstanding urologists of LSU into a model of care, which embraces the extension of complex urologic care to the unique communities of New Orleans.
