Rodney U. Anderson, MD FACS
Professor (Clinical) of Urology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical Medical Research devoted to tertiary level application of treatment modalities for neurologic and functional disturbances of the genitourinary tract. Problems such as urinary incontinence, urinary retention, urinary flow dysfunction (BPH), impotence, and chronic pelvic pain syndromes are addressed. New medical devices and technology for treating these disorders are investigated
James D. Brooks
Keith and Jan Hurlbut Professor in the Stanford University School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We use genomic approaches to identify disease biomarkers. We are most interested in translating biomarkers into clinical practice in urological diseases with a particular focus in cancer.
Bertha Chen, MD
Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Gynecology - Urogynecology) and, by courtesy, of Urology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Chen’s research examines the molecular causes of urinary incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction. Recognizing that urinary incontinence linked to demise of smooth muscle sphincter function, she is investigating the potential use of stem cell regeneration to restore muscle capacity.
Benjamin I. Chung, MD
Associate Professor of Urology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Renal cell carcinoma and prostate cancer outcomes research and epidemiology.
Craig V. Comiter
Professor of Urology and, by courtesy, of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Stanford University Medical Center
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.
Christos E. Constantinou
Associate Professor of Urology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My main recent interest is the application of Biomedical Engineering approaches for the clinical visualization and characterization of the static and dynamic properties of pelvic floor function. This extends to ultrasound Imaging and image processing, construction of computer models and biomechanics analysis of pelvic floor function. It is envisioned that these considerations are important constituents of the clinical evaluation of patients with lower urinary tract dysfunction and urodynamics.
Amy D. Dobberfuhl, M.D.
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Urology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Neurourology & Voiding Dysfunction (Basic Science & Clinical Research): Animal models of voiding and pelvic floor dysfunction (mouse, rat, rabbit), molecular cell signaling inflammatory pathways, urinary incontinence, bladder outlet obstruction, urodynamics, pelvic floor ischemia and tissue mechanics
