Expanding Horizons: Inauguration Ceremony Marks Milestone for Stanford Urology Clinic in Pleasanton

In a celebration of growth and enhanced patient care, the Stanford Urology Clinic in Pleasanton proudly inaugurated its expanded facility on February 19th. The ceremony, attended by Stanford Healthcare senior staff, clinic doctors, and dedicated personnel, marked the culmination of efforts to bring cutting-edge urological services closer to the residents of the East Bay's Tri-Valley region and beyond.

Urodynamic with Fluoroscopy Room

The state-of-the-art Urodynamic Room with Fluoroscopy capabilities is a standout addition to the clinic and introduces new procedures previously unavailable at the Pleasanton location.  This expansion brings additional diagnostic tools for the evaluation of complex voiding disorders and post-operative care.

"Fluoroscopy opens us up to some other procedures that we weren't able to do before. It saves our patients from having to travel to Emeryville, Palo Alto, or Redwood City, providing a more convenient and accessible option for those in the Tri-Valley area", as said by Dr. Vanessa Gulla, underscoring the significance of the Urodynamic Room.

Introducing New Expertise

As part of the expanded services, Stanford Urology Clinic in Pleasanton has welcomed two distinguished specialists to its team. Dr. Tope Rude, a reconstructive urologist/urogynecologist specializing in incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, addresses a significant demand for female pelvic health reconstruction in the area. Additionally, Dr. Eugene Shkolyar brings expertise in complex urologic cancers, covering bladder, prostate, kidney, and testicular cancers.


Innovative Treatments and Advanced Procedures

The expanded Stanford Urology Clinic in Pleasanton continues to offer specialized expertise in treating a range of urological issues affecting the urinary tract. This includes urologic cancers, prostate disease, erectile dysfunction, stones, and urinary incontinence. The clinic is equipped to provide advanced treatment options, including nonsurgical and minimally invasive care for enlarged prostate, kidney stones, cancer, reconstructive surgery, and overactive bladder.
