    Jay Shah

    Associate Professor of Urology at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Bio Dr. Shah is a fellowship-trained urologic oncologist specializing in the treatment of bladder cancer and other urologic cancers. He has a special interest in robotic surgery, emerging treatment options, and optimization of post-surgical recovery. Having written many peer-reviewed papers and book chapters on these topics, he is a well-respected authority in his field. He takes tremendous pride in getting to know every patient and helping them choose the treatment plan that is right for them.

    Prior to joining the Stanford Cancer Center, Dr. Shah was on faculty at MD Anderson Cancer Center for seven years where he served as Center Medical Director of the Genitourinary Center as well as Director of the Bladder Cancer Robotics Program and supervisor of Medical Student Education for the Department of Urology.

  • Linda M. Dairiki Shortliffe

    Linda M. Dairiki Shortliffe

    Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor in the School of Medicine, Emerita

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The timing for intervention in obstruction in the infant and child is poorly understood.Our group has been interested in trying to define the risks that may be involved in obstructive and infectious uropathies and discovering early signs of damage to the urinary tract and kidney. We have explored ways of imaging the urinary tract using nonionizing radiation (US, MRI). We have studied the relationships of sex steroid hormones, pregnancy, reflux, urinary tract infection and urinary tract function.

  • Eila C. Skinner

    Eila C. Skinner

    Thomas A. Stamey Research Professor in Urology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on outcomes in the treatment of muscle invasive and high-grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. This includes identifying markers of prognosis, predictive markers for response to surgery and chemotherapy, and working toward an individualized, multidisciplinary approach to disease management. I have also focused on optimizing the use of lower urinary tract reconstruction in patients undergoing cystectomy, and developing interventions to improve patient quality of life.

  • Simon John Christoph Soerensen

    Simon John Christoph Soerensen

    Graduate, Medicine, Urology

    Bio I am a last year medical student joining the Department of Urology from Aarhus University, Denmark. My clinical areas of interest include cancer imaging, urologic oncologic outcomes research, prostate cancer, robotic urologic surgeries, and applied deep learning in healthcare. I am currently working on developing novel deep learning methods for segmenting the prostate before MRI-TRUS fusion biopsies as well as diagnosing prostate cancer on MRI based on zonal prostate anatomy.

  • Eric R. Sokol, MD

    Eric R. Sokol, MD

    Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Gynecology-Urogynecology) and, by courtesy, of Urology at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on the development and testing of novel minimally invasive treatment modalities for complex pelvic floor disorders.

  • Geoffrey Sonn

    Geoffrey Sonn

    Assistant Professor of Urology and, by courtesy, of Radiology at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interest is in improving prostate cancer diagnosis through MRI and image-targeted prostate biopsy. In collaboration with radiologists at Stanford, we are working to define the optimal role of MRI in prostate cancer. We hope to improve cancer imaging to the point that some men with elevated PSA may safely avoid prostate biopsy. For those who need biopsy, we are evaluating novel MRI-US fusion targeted biopsy, a technique that greatly improves upon the conventional biopsy method.
