How did you choose your specialty?

I enjoyed surgery and knew I wanted to choose a field which allowed me to operate.  I enjoy both abdominal and pelvic anatomy.  I like a mix of complex surgeries and minor procedures.  I also enjoy that Urology allows one to operate, but also maintain long term relationships with patients.

What do you like MOST, and like LEAST, about your specialty?

I like the variety of procedures involved in the field.  I generally to not love managing female urinary incontinence, but as a female physician in the field of urology, I automatically see a large amount of these patients due to patient preference.

In your opinion, what attributes are important in anyone choosing this specialty?

  • Technical skill surgically
  • The ability to comfortably discuss personal issues with patients
  • An interest in both medical and surgical management of a particular disease process
