Dr. Weiss earned her M.D. degree from Yale University. She completed internship and residency in Urology at the University of California at San Francisco before coming to CHOP for her fellowship in Pediatric Urology in 2012. In 2013, Dr. Weiss was awarded the prestigious Urologic Care Foundation Research Scholar Award. In line with her research investigating the neurologic and physiologic basis of voiding and bladder outlet obstruction, Dr. Weiss will also be involved in caring for patients with neuropathic and non-neuropathic bladder dysfunction. Dr. Weiss’ other special clinical interests include complex reconstruction, including hypospadias and exstrophy/epispadias, as well as minimally invasive and robotic-assisted techniques for genitourinary reconstruction.
