Stuart D. Boyd, M.D., chief of urology at Keck Hospital of USC, ex-chief of staff at USC Norris Cancer Hospital, is professor of urology at the Keck School of Medicine. Dr. Boyd’s areas of clinical and research interest include urologic oncology, reconstruction of the urinary tract, erectile dysfunction, male urinary incontinence and peyronies disease. Dr. Boyd has become internationally recognized as a reconstructive cancer surgeon and an authority on urologic prosthetics and peyronies disease. He has developed several original reconstructive techniques utilizing these devices. He is a major referral site for previously failed prosthetic surgeries, including infections and non-functioning devices. Dr. Boyd chairs an annual urologic conference, designed to update urologists on the latest therapies, and has operated and lectured throughout the world on his techniques. Dr. Boyd joined the USC Department of Urology in 1982 after graduating with honors from Stanford University and completing his medical and urologic training at UCLA. He is annually listed as one of “The Best Doctors in America” and was named by Men’s Health Magazine (2007) as one of the top 20 urologists in the United States. He became interested in reconstructive surgery for erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence at UCLA through his work with Joseph Kaufman, M.D. and at the Mayo Clinic under William Furlow, M.D., both of whom were pioneers in the development and use of urologic prosthesis. While at USC, he also helped pioneer the techniques for reconstruction of the bladder following bladder cancer surgery and total urethral reconstruction following radiation therapy damage or trauma from accidents.
