The Endourology Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is an Endourology Society accredited fellowship. The fellowship program was established by Dr. Stephen Nakada in 2002.
Currently a one-year program, this fellowship has both a clinical and academic focus.
Dr. Stephen Nakada, Dr. Margaret Knoedler, Kris Penniston, PhD, and Dr. Dan Gralnek are the core fellowship faculty. Other clinical faculty include Dr. Allan Jhagroo, Dr. Sean Hedican, Dr. Chris Manakas, and Dr. Sara Best. Faculty in interventional radiology include Dr. Mark Kleedehn, Dr. Prasad Dalvie, and Dr. Jason Pinchot.
During the course of their fellowship, our fellows gain broad experience in clinical endourology, including complex ureteroscopy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, and HoLEP.
Fellows will master the medical management of stone disease through participation in our multi-disciplinary stone clinic, under the mentorship of Kris Penniston, PhD, RDN, and nephrologist Dr. Allan Jhagroo. Academic pursuits in the fellowship, including fellowship essay, are led by Drs. Nakada, Knoedler, and Penniston.

All endourology fellows have dedicated research time and a dedicated research space, including access to a PhD.

Fellows also have access to a brand new, state-of-the-art Simulation Center to develop their skills and for potential investigations. A fully equipped animal laboratory is also available.
Our fellows also are involved in clinical and teaching exercises associated with our residency program as the fellowship regulations allow. Any inquiries should be addressed to Dr. Stephen Nakada or to Denise Mussehl, our fellowship coordinator.
