Graduating Fellows & Chief Residents

Dr. Amy Dobberfuhl,
Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery Fellow

Training at Stanford has opened up an incredible number of opportunities for both personal and professional grown. After graduation I will begin a junior faculty position at Stanford as Instructor, and continue KL2 sponsored basic science and clinical translational research to further our understanding of overactive and underactive bladder voiding dysfunction. I am thankful to all of my mentors, who advised me on my recent NIH K23 grant submission. As our lab and my clinical practice grows, I am excited about the coming year as further research opportunities unfold.

Dr. Aman Mahal
Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery Fellow

Training at a dual program in the Staford Urology and Gynecology departments has given me the experience and confidence to practice safe and effective patient care, resident teaching and clinical research.  I have the upmost gratitude for the vast diversity of clinical cases and research oppurtunities I experienced at Stanford, always under the tooliage of talented mentors and teachers.  I'm proud to have trained here.  After completing my fellowship, I'll pack up my growing family and I will be joining Adult and Pediatric Urology and Urologynecology in Omaha, Nebraska. 

Dr. David Guo,

Training at Stanford has provided incredible patient variety, excellent faculty mentorship, and the best team of residents I could ask for.  After graduation, I will be heading back to New England to start a fellowship in Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at Brown Medical School.

Dr. Dimi Zlatev,

Dr. Remy Lamberts,
Chief Resident

I grew up in Reno, NV where I played soccer, mountain biked, skied, windsurfed, skateboarded, and spent time with my family!  I have had such a great time living in the bay area still mountain biking and playing soccer, and I have had an amazing experience training with some of the best urologic surgeons in the country here at SUH. I plan on going back to work with the top group in Reno, Urology Nevada, where I'll again be near my family, serving my community, and continue to participate in a variety of pastimes!
