Urology Centers of Alabama

Fellowship Overview
Fellow will work exclusively with Dr. Christine, both in the operating room and seeing patients in clinic. Clinic days are Mon, Tues and Fri where the fellow will learn proper evaluation of Peyronie’s Disease, Erectile Dysfunction, Testosterone Replacement and Urinary Incontinence. Clinic procedures such as Testopel placement, Xiaflex injections and cystoscopy will be performed by the fellow. He or she will be exposed to running a private practice clinic, not only from a patient flow standpoint, but also from a marketing perspective. Dr. Christine operates on Wed and Thurs. The fellow will become very experience with a myriad of procedures to treat sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence. He or she will quickly work up to taking the lead on approximately 50% of the cases with Dr. Christine assisting. The fellow will also be strongly involved in training programs with people from out of town and help to show visiting doctors the strength of a good prosthetic team. Dr. Christine goes to many meetings throughout the year that the fellow will have the opportunity to attend such as the SMSNA, ISSM/ESSM, AUA and occasionally the ICS as well as the SESAUA. He or she will be expected to submit abstracts to some of these meetings.
