Dr Elliott is a fellowship trained, pelvic reconstructive surgeon with expertise in neurourology. He participated in the physician-scientist program at Ohio State University, receiving both and MD as well as a PhD in epidemiology. After completing his urologic residency at Stanford University Medical Center in 2010, he became Stanford's first Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Fellow - a unique two year ABU/ABOG accredited fellowship with both Stanford Urology and Urogynecology faculty training. During this time he received a full experience in pelvic medicine that encompassed both male and female patients. He has clinical and surgical expertise in the management of female pelvic organ prolapse, complex urogynecologic anomalies, overactive bladder, BPH, voiding dysfunction secondary to neurologic disease and both male and female incontinence.
Starting in 2012, Dr Elliott joined the Division of Urology at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, California with a joint appointment at Stanford University Medical Center. In addition to his clinical work, he has authored several book chapters, published multiple journal articles and taught courses at national meetings (AUA, AUGS). His main academic interests include the epidemiologic study of pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence and bladder dysfunction after spinal cord injury. Dr Elliott is currently a member of the SUFU young members committee and the Neurogenic Bladder Research Group.
