Pediatric Urological Anomalies
Dr. Shukla provides consultation and strategic input in developing opportunities for partnerships and collaborations that serve to increase access to pediatric health care services in South Asia and Gulf Region. Dr. Shukla leverages existing and ongoing global health experience in direct interactions with government entities, social entrepreneurs and physician leaders to transform and scale delivery in target regions.
In 2009, Dr. Shukla initiated a surgical workshop at the Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad that has become an international model of Indo-U.S. academic collaboration bringing together leading American children's hospital and India's most respected pediatric surgeons to address the vast surgical burden of complex urological anomalies in India. The annual Bladder Exstrophy-Epispadias consortium is in its 7th consecutive year, and just held India's first international conference dedicated to addressing complex pediatric reconstructive urology dilemmas.
