Message From the Chief 

 

It is my pleasure to present the Spring Duke Urology newsletter. We continue to expand our Urology Faculty and will begin adding residents this summer after the Residency Review Committee approval of the expansion of our residency program. We have a busy Spring in store with 12 presentations at the Southeastern Section meeting in Amelia Island and 24 presentations during the AUA meeting in Atlanta. Our research efforts continue to expand with 20 active research grants including 5 received in the past few months, and a number awarded to Dr. Freedland to support his work on the role of cholesterol, lifestyle interventions, and risk stratification for men with prostate cancer. Of these 20 active research grants that include funding to 8 different faculty members and fellows, 8 are from NIH and 6 from the Department of Defense.

 

In this newsletter, we highlight Pei Zhong, Ph.D. who has been a long standing member of Duke Urology. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Zhong for the past twenty-one years, when he first began working in my laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow, while I was an attending at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Since coming to Duke in 1994, Dr. Zhong has made significant contributions to the Department of Surgery and the Division of Urology. This relationship has been a mutually beneficial research and educational collaboration, which has resulted in numerous publications, grants and patents. You will enjoy reading more about Dr. Zhong's recent accomplishments in this issue of our newsletter.

 

We are excited to announce the recruitment of two new faculty members who will be joining us this summer. Edward Rampersaud, M.D. is completing his Society of Urologic Oncology Fellowship with Arie Beldegrun, M.D. at UCLA Medical Center and Nikki Le, M.D. has spent the last two years training with Dr. Shlomo Raz, also at UCLA in Female Urology. We will be highlighting Ed and Nikki in our next newsletter.

 

I would like to thank George Webster, M.D. for his 34+ years of service to Duke Urology. George joined Jim Glenn for a Fellowship in 1974, returned to Duke in 1978 and was appointed to the faculty in 1979. During that time, Dr. Webster was acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent clinicians and researchers in the fields of Female and Reconstructive Urology. We are fortunate to have George continue in a teaching and research role after stepping down from clinical practice at the end of 2011.

 

We hope our alumni will join us to celebrate our three graduating Chief Residents at this year's Chiefs' Dinner on Friday 22 June. We will be honoring our 5th and 25th year graduating DYSURICs during a wonderful evening at the Washington-Duke Inn and Golf Club. Moreover, we will be celebrating the 6th year of our collaboration with the Department of Defense in training Urologists for the Army. We are excited to host Colonel John M. Powers, MC USA as our honored guest. In addition, we have tours of the new Duke Cancer Center available. The Duke Cancer Center recently opened on February 27, 2012. The Urologic Surgery Oncology clinic is on its 5th floor. Alumni are also invited to participate in the second annual Duke Urology Resident-Faculty-Alumni golf tournament on Saturday morning June 23.

 

Finally, I would like to welcome Charles Yowell, M.D., Chair of our DYSURIA society, who has contributed his inaugural column to this newsletter. We hope to see all of our DYSURICs at the AUA meeting in Atlanta for our annual reception, which will be held on Tuesday evening May 22 at the Omni Hotel, CNN Center.

 

I am honored to help guide our knowledgeable, innovative and compassionate group of residents, fellows, faculty and staff. We continue to make great strides in Urologic care, research and education. Please drop me a note or come by to see us in Durham or during the AUA meeting in Atlanta. I look forward to speaking with you.

 

All the best,

 

Glenn

Faculty Highlight:  Professor Pei Zhong


 

Pei Zhong, Ph.D. was recently promoted to Full Research Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at the Duke University Medical Center. Pei is internationally recognized as an accomplished researcher and many consider him to be the premier researcher in shock wave lithotripsy and intracorporeal stone fragmentation in the United States, if not the world. Dr. Zhong is often asked to chair various panels and discussions on the topic of shock wave physics and intracorporeal lithotripsy during national and international meetings. Duke Urology has had a long-term and fruitful collaboration with Dr. Zhong on shock wave lithotripsy and intracorporeal lithotripter research over the past 17 years. Pei has co-advised the research work of 31 postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars, Urology residents and medical students. These collaborations have led to multiple NIH grants with a total exceeding $10 million, 8 patents, and more than 49 journal publications and book chapters.

 

Dr. Zhong has been collaborating with Dr. Cary Robertson on HIFU therapy for prostate cancer since 2008. This collaboration has led to a Pre-SPORE award from the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center, two conference papers, and one NIH RO1 grant and one Department of Defense synergistic idea award application pending for review. He has also worked with Steve Freedland, M.D. in preparation of a NIH Prostate Cancer SPORE program application.

 

Moreover, Pei has collaborated with Dr. Thomas J. Polascik and Dr. Vladimir Mouraviev on the comparison of the anti-tumor immune response elicited by HIFU vs. cryotherapy in the treatment of prostate cancer. He served as a co-investigator on a DoD proposal that Dr. Polascik and Dr. Mouraviev submitted in 2009.

 

Dr. Zhong has been integrally involved in our Urology Educational program, overseeing the research training of Urology residents, fellows, and medical students. He has given Urology Grand Round talks on shock wave lithotripsy and HIFU. Furthermore, in collaboration with Dr. Glenn Preminger and Prof. John Dolbow of CEE, Pei has submitted a NIH R25 research education program grant application to develop a new course on the fundamentals of shock wave lithotripsy. The goal of this R25 grant is to educate and train engineering students, and to foster their research interest and career development in urology-related areas.

 

Recently, Pei was awarded the highly competitive NIH MERIT award. Less than 5 percent of NIH-funded investigators are selected as recipients. The MERIT award is "intended to provide long-term grant support to investigators whose research competence and productivity are distinctly superior and who are highly likely to continue to perform in an outstanding manner." This significant acknowledgement of Dr. Zhong's research efforts will allow him and his collaborators at Duke and UNC to continue the innovative research in SWL that will benefit all patients with kidney stones managed by this non-invasive surgical technology.

 

Pei continues his collaborative efforts with Duke Urology in a number of research areas. We thank him for his educational and research effort and look forward to many more productive years in shock wave and lithotripsy research.

 

 

DYSURIA (Duke Youthful Society of Urology Residents Interested in Advancement)


Charles W. Yowell, MD

 

Duke Urology Residents, Duke Fellows, Duke Professors, and friends of Duke Urology, I welcome you to a new chapter in DYSURIA's future and our goal of reconnecting DYSURICs to the current Duke Urology Team.

 

As our established Alumni Society, DYSURIA seeks to support the Duke Urology Residency Program, specifically the acting residents, fellows, and researchers, by directly connecting our Alumni with our current Duke Urology personnel. We congratulate our team for keeping Duke Urology in the US News & World Report's Top Ten for decades in a row, and for placing 8th in the 2011 Rankings.

 

Let's keep Duke Urology on top: Travel expenses, loupes, presentations at meetings, and other indirect costs for Residents are no longer supported by Industry as it was when I was at Duke. The Residency needs our assistance, and it is time for DYSURIA to answer the call. Even small tax deductible contributions to support our team will be meaningful, and I want you to consider making a pledge to support the residents in training.

 

As announced by Dr. Preminger, Duke Urology Alumni celebrating their 5th and 25th Year Reunions will be invited back to attend the Chiefs' Celebration as dinner guests at the Washington Duke Inn. The goal of this important new tradition is to get our DYSURICs connected and supporting the program. This ambitious endeavor will take an effort from all of us; and I, Charles Yowell, MD (2006), with the assistance of E. Everett Anderson, MD (1964), along with the help of the current Duke Urology Program Administration, encourage you to welcome the new efforts of DYSURIA in 2012.

 

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you back at Duke soon.

 

Charles W. Yowell, MD

If a tale is an EPIC, it tells the story of the beginning, end, or major transformation of a specific event. For example, Homer's Iliad describes the end of the Trojans, and the King Arthur tales describe the creation of the British people from a group of tribes with no shared identity. MYTHS focus on magical forces such as gods, monsters, trolls and fairies. Myths remain popular even though we cease to believe in the science within them because they give us comfort to explain something out of our control.

 

Duke has chosen EPIC because of its recognition as the health care industry's leading electronic health record. Designed to offer the seamless exchange of data throughout the organization, EPIC will create a single, accessible, paperless, medical record for each of our patients. This will improve the way we deliver health care across the system. With a focus on tracking clinical quality and safety improvements, EPIC will help to improve our ability to provide consistent, high-quality care with positive outcomes.

 

In keeping with the true description of an EPIC, the division of urology is just beginning our transformation. We have begun to make lists of the most common diagnoses that we see in each of our subspecialties. Once these lists are formalized, we can begin to create and build templates for use in the system to better manage our daily clinical practice. This stage of our transformation will take significant input from all of the faculty and staff in the division of urology. Our current subject matter experts include Dr. Wiener (pediatrics), Dr. Ferrandino and Dr. Preminger (nephrolithiasis and minimally invasive surgery), Dr. Polascik and Dr. Inman (oncology), and Dr. Peterson (reconstruction and female urology). After these templates are created and validated, training will be the next phase in our transformation to a more efficient, consistent, high-quality division within the Duke University Health System. The final phase of our transformation will be the implementation scheduled to take place in July 2013.

 

Although there are many warranted and understandable fears regarding EPIC, a smooth transition can be achieved with proper orientation and training. This system will bring many benefits, such as improved workflow efficiency, quality care, error prevention and enhanced clinical decision-making.

 

If you have any questions about the type of templates being built at this stage of our transformation, please contact one of the subject matter experts listed above.

 

Remind Me Again Why We Want to Use EPIC

 

* PATIENT SAFETY

* Universal access to patient data-no more lost data from paper charts. Information can be shared by different clinicians at different locations including home or anywhere there is an Internet connection in the world. All patient information is easily accessible.

* Orders management-significant reduction in transcription errors of patient orders, and legibility is never in question. When you sign the orders, you are notified immediately of medication interactions or allergies you might have overlooked, thereby reducing calls from the pharmacy. Patient safety is greatly improved.

* Promotion of evidence-based medicine-Reviewing order sets helps to ensure that care reflects current recommendations.

Research

 

 

As spring arrives, we in Urology turn our attention to the upcoming American Urological Association Meeting. Every year, this is a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful depth and breadth of research within Duke Urology. This year is no exception. Collectively, the Division of Urology is co-authoring over 30 abstracts to be presented at the AUA Meeting. This is truly a staggering number and makes Duke Urology one of the most prolific Urology programs in the country.

 

Although heavily focused on prostate cancer, the breadth is quite remarkable and includes abstracts related to erectile dysfunction, BPH, endourology/stone disease, reconstructive urology, pediatrics, and neurourology/voiding dysfunction.  In addition, the abstracts include prospective randomized trials, observational data, and basic science studies. Thus, the full spectrum of Urologic Research will be on display as Duke Urology heads to Atlanta in May.

 

Of special note, I want to congratulate Dr. David Chu, one of our 4th year residents, who won the AUA Ambrose/Reed Socioeconomics Prize Essay Contest for his essay entitled, "The Effect of Race and Socioeconomic Status on Surgical Margins and Biochemical Outcomes in an Equal-access Healthcare Setting: Results from the SEARCH Database". This is an international contest open to all residents and recently graduated residents for which they select one winner per year. To my knowledge, this is the first time this award has been won by someone from Duke.

 

In addition, I want to congratulate Dr. Roberto Muller, one of our research fellows, who won 3rd prize in the AUA/ACMI Prize Essay Contest, Clinical Research Category. This is indeed a great honor and continues a long Duke tradition of winning awards at the American Urological Association Meeting in this category. Indeed, Duke Urology Residents, Fellows, and Faculty have won 7 awards in the past 7 years between Clinical and Laboratory Research.

 

Research does not happen in a vacuum, but rather requires a well-oiled machine and lots of support. To that end, we have spent significant efforts over the past few months to build the infrastructure needed to support our research and provide appropriate oversight. Towards those goals, I want to thank and congratulate three individuals who are taking on increasing responsibilities in our new Urology research organization: Dr. Jonathan Routh, Director of Database Research; Dr. Brant Inman, Director of Clinical Trials Research; and Dr. Sherry Ross, Director of Pediatric Urology Research. While some holes remain (most notably Director of Translational Science Research), I am excited to work with Drs. Routh, Inman, and Ross to organize Urology research providing better oversight and guidance. Specifically, we have developed a system where all new research studies in the entire Division are reviewed by a committee consisting of our Chief of Urology (Glenn Preminger), myself (Vice Chief of Research), the 3 above mentioned individuals as well as other faculty representatives, administrative support staff, grant support staff, and clinical coordinators. This committee will provide oversight of all proposed research activities, provide feedback and guidance to the investigators, and help prioritize which research projects to move forward. It is anticipated that this new process will result in research at the highest levels of integrity and quality. I am very confident that as a team we can elevate Duke Urology research to an even higher level resulting in many impactful papers that will have a far reaching influence on the field of Urology.

 

 

John S. Wiener, MD

Pediatric Urology

 

The Section of Pediatric Urology continues to grow by leaps and bounds in the 2011-12 academic year. With three pediatric urologists, John S. Wiener, M.D., Sherry S. Ross, M.D., and most recently Jonathan C. Routh, M.D., M.P.H., our clinical volume is up 45% over last year. In addition to providing easier and more rapid access to care, we are improving the quality of care with multidisciplinary clinics in fetal urology (prenatal care), pediatric stone disease, pediatric oncology, renal transplantation, and disorders of sexual development.  Drs. Ross and Routh have a particular interest in minimally invasive surgery and have developed a robotic surgical program to offer the benefits of minimally invasive surgery to the smallest patients, performing eight robotic procedures on children in 2011.

 

Other news:

John Wiener is current President of the Society for Fetal Urology and served on the planning committee of the Second World Congress on Spina Bifida in Las Vegas, NV March 11-14, 2012.

 

Sherry Ross is leading a medical mission trip to Guatemala along with pediatric surgery and other members of the Duke surgical team to correct congenital defects in children for one week in April 2012.

 

Jon Routh was selected to provide Take Home Messages in Outcomes Research at the American Urological Association annual meeting in May 2012.
