Endourology Fellowship

The Endourology Fellowship Program at Stony Brook Medicine offers trainees a one-year training experience in endourology and nephrolithiasis.  The focus of the Fellowship is to provide applicants with the opportunity to develop the clinical, surgical, metabolic, and research skills required to be an expert in treating patients with stone disease.

About Fellowship

The Fellowship is structured to include a combination of clinical/surgical (80%) and research (20%) training over the 1-year training period under the guidance of the faculty and with the resources of Stony Brook Medicine. With a large volume of endourologic procedures at Stony Brook, fellows will receive a comprehensive experience in all aspects of Endourology. The goal for the Fellow will be to master all aspects of the management of stone disease. This will include clinical and surgical management of stone patients with complex metabolic disturbances and anatomical anomalies. The fellow will also perform endoscopic procedures for urologic tumors.


The fellowship faculty consists of three board-certified urologists who specialize in endourology and stone disease. Fellows will also work alongside Dr. Ferretti, who specializes in interventional and diagnostic radiology.
