The fellowship will be led by J. Francois Eid, MD and Bob Berookhim, MD. The fellowship has a strong focus in penile prosthetics, with a broad surgical experience in the various surgical approaches to the procedure and one of the most robust surgical volumes nationwide in this field. Fellows will additionally gain proficiency in reproductive microsurgery, with experience in microsurgical varicocelectomy, vasectomy reversal, and microdissection testicular sperm extraction, and urinary prosthetics, in addition to expertise in penile duplex ultrasound, intracavernosal injections, intralesional collagenase (Xiaflex) injections for Peyronies disease, and office based sperm retrieval techniques.
