Fellowship in Endourology & Minimally Invasive Oncology

The fellow will work with the physicians who specialize in advanced endourology and minimally invasive urologic oncology in the Department of Urology and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center of Thomas Jefferson University. Dr. Scott Hubosky is responsible for the endourologic aspects of the training. Laparoscopy and minimally invasive urologic oncology are managed by Dr. Costas Lallas with Drs. Leonard Gomella, Edouard Trabulsi,  James R. Mark, and Thenu Chandrasekar at Thomas Jefferson University and Methodist Hospitals. The Fellowship focuses on ureteroscopy, percutaneous nephroscopy, and laparoscopic/robotic reconstructive surgery and oncology, including nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, prostatectomy cystectomy, and more advanced procedures. Pure laparoscopic and robotically assisted approaches are employed. The Fellow attends the Stone Clinic, and the Multidisciplinary GU Oncology Clinic at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. They are expected to participate in weekly urology conferences and be involved in teaching residents and medical students. There is a dedicated Endourology Suite at the University Hospital with a wide range of endourologic equipment and four daVinci Robots. The Fellow is expected to participate in research endeavors in the department, which includes writing abstracts and manuscripts, and presenting at major regional and national meetings.
