Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Whittam "I am a practicing clinical pediatric urologist with an emphasis on pediatric robotic and minimally invasive surgery. I completed my medical school training at Dartmouth Medical School followed by Urology residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. I then completed a pediatric urology fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine and Riley Hospital for Children. My clinical interests include minimally invasive and robotic surgery, as well as sacral neuromodulation for refractory voiding dysfunction. My research interests include collaborative clinical pathways, long-term reconstructive surgical outcomes, diagnostic testing efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of robotic assisted surgery. "
