Where I see patients (6)
UCSF Baskin Lab
The Baskin Laboratory investigates the causes of pediatric urological diseases present at birth or acquired later. The lab's research has a special focus on curing and preventing hypospadias, in which the urethra's opening is on the underside of the penis.
Baskin serves as section editor for pediatric urology at UpToDate, an online reference tool that provides support to health care professionals making treatment decisions based on the most current evidence. He is the first author of many chapters on pediatric urological conditions.
Robot-assisted urologic surgery
Baskin's pediatric urology team offers cutting-edge robot-assisted surgical techniques using the da Vinci Xi system. This has advantages for procedures such as pyeloplasty, partial and total nephrectomy, ureteral reconstruction and urachal cyst removal.
