Why Mount Sinai?
At the Mount Sinai Health System, we have some of the nation’s most highly trained and well-regarded specialists. Our Director of Reconstructive Urology, Rajveer Purohit, MD, MPH, is Associate Professor in the Icahn School of Medicine and a prominent reconstructive urologist specializing in all aspects of reconstructive urology and voiding dysfunction including gender affirmation surgery, urethral strictures treatment and complex urinary and sexual problems. Dr. Purohit has published broadly in this field and is one of the tristate area’s busiest reconstructive urology surgeons offering definitive repair of these problems and others that many other urologists had found untreatable.
He leads a world-class team of experienced and recognized urologists who together cover all aspects of reconstructive urology including Miroslav Djordjevic, MD, Jerry Blaivas, Neil Grafstein, Sovrin Shah, Vannita Simma-Chiang, and Aaron Grotas.
Miroslav Djordjevic, MD, recently joined the department. He is a world renowned surgeon specializing in gender affirmation surgery, transitional urology and pediatric urology and is currently the president of the Society of Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgeons (GURS). Patients who previously travelled to Belgrade, Serbia to see Dr. Djorjdevic will now be able to be treated by him closer to home.
Jerry Blaivas, MD, is the senior faculty member of the reconstructive urology program. A world renowned surgeon, academician, educator and writer, Dr. Blaivas was recently honored as one of the founders of the new surgical subspecialty that combines urology and gynecology - Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. He is a champion of no mesh surgeries for incontinence in men and women and considered “the doctor of last resort” for vaginal mesh complications, urinary fistulas, pelvic radiation complications and failed prostate surgeries.
