His current research focus is the use of patient reported outcome measures (i.e., questionnaires) before and after urethral stricture surgery.
Dr. Voelzke is a founding member of the Trauma and Urologic Reconstructive Network of Surgeons (TURNS). TURNS is composed of reconstructive urologists across multiple academic centers that collaborate in the study male urologic reconstruction and urologic trauma. TURNS is the first and only clinical research network of its kind in the field of male reconstructive urology and genitourinary trauma. This type of collaborative research effort is essential to advancing the field of male urethral reconstruction.
