Stuart B. Bauer MDSenior Associate in Urology, Boston Children’s Hospital; Professor of Surgery (Urology), Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts
Dr. Stuart Bauer received his medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine in 1968, interned at King County Hospital in Seattle Washington, completed his residency in Urology at Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston and had an elective with Mr. Richard Turner Warwick at the Middlesex Hospital in London. He moved to Children’s Hospital Boston in 1977 developing the first urodynamics laboratory entirely devoted to children and rose to Professor of Surgery (Urology) at Harvard Medical School in 2000. His research has led to breakthroughs in understanding of bladder function in children with neurologic, anatomic, and functional disorders. His findings in newborns with myelodysplasia led to a paradigm shift in how these babies are managed currently. He has published more than 166 articles in peer reviewed journals, written over 61 chapters in urologic textbooks, edited a textbook on Pediatric Urology for Primary Care physicians and has been a visiting professor at 21 institutions in the United States and including 9 worldwide. He has been a lecturer or invited speaker at 73 meetings and courses (28 in foreign countries) and has delivered 128 papers at national and international meetings on a wide range of subjects relating to his research efforts.
From 2008 to 2014, he served as President of the International Children’s Continence Society where he has worked to advance the objectives of this global society. In 2009, he was chosen to receive the Paediatric Urology Progress Medal from the World Federation of Societies for Paediatric Urology. In October 2011, Dr. Bauer was awarded the Pediatric Urology Medal from the Section on Urology of the American Academy of Pediatrics for his outstanding contributions to his field of interest during his career. In 2012, he was cited with a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award from the Spina Bifida Association of America. In 2014, the AUA honored him with the Victor A. Politano award for his pioneering work on bladder dysfunction in children.
