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.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Renal cell carcinoma and prostate cancer outcomes research and epidemiology.

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.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Urology
Bio I am a founding member of the Stanford Urolithiasis Project, where we have studied population health datasets to examine surgical outcomes and environmental risk factors in urinary stone disease. Our current focus includes socioeconomic and ethnic disparities in kidney stone disease, water quality and stone disease, pregnancy in kidney stone disease and geographical variations in kidney stones incidence and metabolic kidney stone work up. As a Clinical Assistant professor of urology and Director of the Stanford Kidney Stones center I have performed 300-400 surgeries per year for kidney stones since joining the faculty in 2015.
