Stuart B. Bauer | Professional History
Dr. Stuart Bauer received his medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine in 1968, interned at King County Hospital in Seattle Washington, completed his residency in Urology at Tufts-New England Medical Center in Boston and had an elective with Mr. Richard Turner Warwick at the Middlesex Hospital in London. He moved to Children’s Hospital Boston in 1977 developing the first urodynamics laboratory entirely devoted to children and rose to Professor of Surgery (Urology) at Harvard Medical School in 2000. His research has led to breakthroughs in understanding of bladder function in children with neurologic, anatomic, and functional disorders. His findings in newborns with myelodysplasia led to a paradigm shift in how these babies are currently managed worldwide.
He has published more than 196 articles in peer-reviewed journals, written over 70 chapters in urologic textbooks and edited 2 books on the evaluation and management of children with urologic diseases. In addition, he has been a visiting professor at numerous institutions in the United States and worldwide and given lectures at over 150 scientific meetings, locally, nationally and internationally. From 2008 to 2014, he served as President of the International Children’s Continence Society where he has worked tirelessly to advance the objectives of this global society, namely improvement in the care of children with bladder dysfunction.
He has received a number of awards recognizing his accomplishments during his long and distinguished career: in 2009, he received the Pediatric Urology Progress Medal; in October, 2011 Dr. Bauer was awarded the Pediatric Urology Medal from the Section on Urology of the American Academy of Pediatrics for his outstanding contributions to his field of interest during his career; a Life Time Achievement Medal from the Spina Bifida Association of America was granted to him in March 2012; the American Urologic Association recognized his advances in the care of children with neurogenic bladder dysfunction by presenting him with the Victor A. Politano Award; and, most recently, on September 11, 2021, his research was cited when the American Urological Association Care Foundation honored him with the John W. Duckett Jr., MD Pediatric Urology Research Excellence Award.
