University of California San Francisco
I have trained > 30 fellows in endourology, and > 90 residents at the UCSF. I have published > 250 peer reviewed articles and > 70 chapters. I have edited a book on the medical and surgical management of urinary stone disease. I have > 20 patents either issued or submitted and many have been developed into endourological products. I was the first to hypothesize the vascular tree as the source of early urinary stones. I was the first to popularize lemonade as the drink of choice to help prevent recurrent nephrolithiasis. I documented the association between urinary stone disease and cardiovascular disease in women. I identified the association of urinary stones with cardiac calcifications and carotid pathology. I helped identified the gene associated with cystine nephrolithiasis. I described the association of Randall plaques with calcified nanoparticles and was the first to endoscopically map and describe Randall plaques with high resolution imaging. I have received the teaching award numerous years at UCSF and received a lifelong service award to the Society of Government Service Urologist and have trained numerous urologists in the Army and Navy. I have spearheaded the use of urologists as surgeons at community zoos. I popularized the use of laparoscopic nephrectomy with autotransplantation for severe ureteral stricture disease. I spearheaded urologist-directed percutaneous renal access for PNL’s. More recently, I developed a Drosophila invertebrate animal model to study urinary stone disease. I developed and popularized the use of peripheral afferent nerve stimulation for pelvic floor dysfunction (Stoller Afferent Nerve Stimulator, SANS). I have been instrumental in the creation of a biomineralization center at UCSF in collaboration with Sunita Ho.
