Hello my name is Ketul Shah. I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Urology at The Ohio State University and Wexner Medical Center. My areas of interest are female and male pelvic reconstruction and urodynamics. I have recently completed a fellowship training in female and male pelvic reconstruction and urodynamics at the University of Colorado Denver. My fellowship training was unique since I had opportunity to train in both male and female pelvic reconstruction. My primary area of focus is going to be female urology where I’ll be taking care of patients who present with urinary incontinence, pelvic.
Organ prolapse, overactive bladder and interstitial cystitis. In terms of male pelvic reconstruction I really enjoy doing delicate reconstruction on male urethra, urethral stricture disease and trauma. The other area, which has fascinated me in in the recent time, is the use of prosthetic surgery for artificial urinary sphincter and penile prosthesis. I also take care of patients who present with neurogenic bladder due to spinal cord injury or trauma and other neurologic conditions like multiple sclerosis. We perform urodynamic studies in order to characterize the voiding dysfunction and come up with a treatment plan, which is individualized for.
That patient. In the recent time we have seen a number of patients who present with vaginal mesh complications. These patients are really suffering due to pain and voiding dysfunction. I had opportunity to participate in care of multiple such patients and we performed clinical research on these cases. In fact we came up with a new management protocol, which we have published in peerreviewed journals as well as presented in national and international meetings. I perform different procedures for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. I also perform procedures like robotic assisted surgery for pelvic organ prolapse,.

Newer therapies for overactive bladder like InterStim therapy, Botox, etc. As a physician, the patient can expect kind and compassionate care from me and my team. We do understand that a large number of patients are suffering for a long period of time. These patients have already received treatment from other physicians and undergone procedures. The most important thing for us would be to spend time with the patient, try and understand their problem and come up with a solution, which is unique for his or her condition and help the patient in the best way we can.
