An Introduction to Elise De, M.D., Voiding Dysfunction, and the Female Urology Procedures Performed by a Urogynecologist

Dr. Elise De, one of the leading female doctors / surgeons in Albany, is a fully board certified Urologist. Her fellowship training was in Voiding Dysfunction at the University of Texas Health Science Center and MD Anderson in Houston, TX.

A Female Urologist or Urogynecologist is a doctor who specializes in incontinence, uterine or bladder prolapse and urinary retention in women.

She is currently an active Assistant Professor of Urology at Albany Medical Center, an active member of the prestigious Education Committee of the International Continence Society, serves as a reviewer for multiple scientific journals, and gives talks to local, regional, and national physician groups regarding bladder function.
