Dr. Carrion's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Carrion "I was born in Lima, Peru but raised in Miami since the age of 11 months. My father was a urologist, originally on staff at the University of Miami and eventually retired at the age of 82. I find it a great honor to follow in his footsteps. I have been blessed with good training curriculum and guidance to excel academically in my field. A robust number of scientific publications and presentations locally, nationally, and internationally have served to continue my professional development. Being elected into the AUA leadership group is one of my greatest achievements professionally since this places me in a select group of national leaders within my field. I am married, with 3 lovely children. I am also a pet lover and currently have 3 dogs. I enjoy sports, having played competitive sports as a youth and now being a fan for soccer, football, basketball, and tennis. I enjoy traveling and the culinary arts."
