Dr. Suskind’s clinical interests urinary incontinence, vaginal mesh complications, urinary fistulas, interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder, bladder dysfunction due to neurologic disease, and other forms of lower urinary tract dysfunction. Her clinical approach integrates surgical and nonsurgical management of these conditions, including physical therapy, medications, Botox bladder injections, urethral injections for stress urinary incontinence, sacral neuromodulation, posterior tibial nerve stimulation and complex urinary surgical reconstruction. She also offers non-mesh slings for treatment of female stress urinary incontinence and has extensive experience in urodynamic testing and interpretation.
Dr. Suskind is a current recipient of the UCSF Department of Urology’s multidisciplinary K12 Urologic Research (KURe) Career Development Program Award, supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Her current research aims to transform surgical decision-making for older individuals undergoing urologic surgery by studying long term outcomes (such as cognition and function) that matter to patients. Dr. Suskind’s research leverages large national databases and innovative analytical techniques to address these important issues. She is also involved in a Urologic Disease in America (UDA) Project assessing national trends and quality associated with the treatment of recurrent urinary tract infections in women, and she has done extensive research using similar techniques in topics related to sacral neuromodulation, complications associated with sling surgery, and interstitial cystitis. Dr. Suskind’s long-term research goals are to contribute to the quality and delivery of treatment strategies for patients with lower urinary tract dysfunction and other urologic conditions.
