Program Details

While the Reconstructive Urology Fellowship at Duke has been in existence for over 30 years, we introduced the Genitourinary Cancer Survivorship fellowship in 2011. This program, pioneered at Duke University was designed to establish the basis for future thought in the care and treatment of genitourinary cancer survivors worldwide.

Duke's high-volume surgical practice offers exposure to the following with the overall goals to include developing proficiency in:

  • Urethral, ureteral, bladder, and pelvic floor reconstruction for problems that arise after treatment for genitourinary cancer
  • The diagnosis and management of fistula disease arising from cancer treatment
  • The creation and revision of continent and non-continent urinary diversions
  • The conduct and interpretation of video urodynamics
  • The medical and surgical treatment of incontinence secondary to cancer treatment, including the management of complicated prosthetic revisions and implantations in the setting of stricture disease
  • The medical and surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction secondary to cancer treatment, including the management of complicated prosthetic revisions, implantations, and penile reconstruction
  • The  medical and surgical treatment of infertility secondary to cancer treatment
  • The training of residents in prosthetic urology
  • The management of unique issues in the Veteran's population of urologic cancer survivors
  • The sensitivity to the psychosocial impact of a cancer diagnosis in the genitourinary patient thus enhancing the fellow's ability to deliver the best survivorship care
