In the Spotlight

Meet Our New Fellows!

Tony Chen, MD

Fellow in Male Reproductive Medicine & Surgery


Tony Chen grew up in Rowland Heights in Southern California and received his undergraduate degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from UC Berkeley. He went on to attend the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine where his exposure to the diverse technologies in Urology helped solidify his interest in the field.  He completed his Urology residency at the University of Washington in Seattle where he continued to grow his passion for innovation. During his research year, he led a team of engineers to invent a device to automate continuous bladder irrigation to increase patient safety and comfort. This effort was the first healthcare-related project to be awarded an Amazon Catalyst grant. He combined his love of technology and education as well by completing an American Colleges of Surgeons simulation fellowship where he helped create a novel high-fidelity Foley catheter insertion simulator and an emergent robot undocking curriculum. When it came time to decide what to subspecialize in, he quickly chose Andrology and Male Infertility because he enjoyed being able to assist men with their most vulnerable and personal needs. While completing his fellowship at Stanford, he hopes to continue applying innovative research and design methods to advance the field of Men’s Health. Outside of work he is a big international traveler, foodie, and serious boba fanatic.
