Genitourinary Reconstruction & Trauma Fellowship

Developing Patient-Focused Leaders in Genitourinary Reconstruction & Trauma

The Genitourinary Reconstruction and Trauma Fellowship at Dell Medical School is a one-year program focused on providing trainees the skills to tackle the most complex genitourinary reconstruction surgeries. The clinical emphasis of the program is in male genitourinary reconstruction, including urethral stricture disease, Peyronie’s disease, robotic ureteral reconstruction and prosthetic urology.

The fellowship’s secondary focus includes genital reconstruction with skin grafting, urinary diversion, transitional urology, urinary fistula surgery and cancer survivorship. Fellows are exposed to urologic trauma and interact with trauma surgeons at a Level I Trauma Center. The fellowship does not provide trainees exposure to gender-affirming surgery and has limited access to female urology and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery through supporting co-faculty.

The goal of the program is to create leaders in genitourinary reconstruction with strong clinical acumen and a focus on academic placement. Fellows will advance the field of genitourinary reconstruction and are expected to be clinically and academically productive with full access to genitourinary reconstruction datasets, weekly interactions with a research working group, participation in industry-sponsored teaching opportunities, and attendance to national and international meetings and workshops.

The Genitourinary and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is affiliated with the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care.

Training Facilities

Health Transformation Building.

UT Health Austin, the clinical practice of Dell Med, uses a revolutionary team-based practice model that takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating people with complex medical conditions. Fellows run their own general urology clinic one half-day per week at this facility and participate in other clinics as time allows.

Exterior of Urology Austin.

Urology Austin is home of an exclusively-focused genitourinary reconstruction clinic co-run by the fellow and program director one half-day per week. Fellows perform a multitude of in-office procedures and diagnostics in this facility.

Exterior of Strictly Pediatrics Subspecialty Center.

The Dell Med Transitional Urology Clinic is co-located in Children’s Urology at Strictly Pediatrics Subspecialty Center one half-day per month. This is the first and only transitional urology clinic in Central Texas to care for teens and young adults with congenital urologic conditions. Fellows evaluate patients at the clinic alongside a pediatric urologist and adult genitourinary reconstruction team.

Dell Seton Medical Center at UT Austin.

Dell Seton Medical Center is a Level 1 Trauma Center and serves as the primary teaching hospital for Dell Med. Charles Osterberg, M.D., the fellowship program director, has performed over 400 urethral reconstructions and over 100 robotic upper tract reconstructions at Dell Seton.
