Dr. Neil Grafstein, MD
MEET EMU'S DOCTORS
Urologist in Glendale, NY
Dr. Grafstein’s clinical practice focuses on the reconstruction of the urinary tract, female urology, and urinary incontinence. With expertise in both neurological (spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, etc.) and non-neurogenic voiding dysfunction, he has a particular interest in the treatment of male post-prostatectomy incontinence using innovative, minimally invasive techniques.
Dr. Grafstein is one of a small number of urologists in the nation with advanced training in reconstruction of the adult male urethra (urethroplasty) for stricture disease or trauma. His surgical reconstructive practice also includes continent urinary diversions, vaginal and pelvic floor reconstruction for female pelvic organ prolapse, and repair of genitourinary fistulae.
Dr. Grafstein has authored numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals, scientific abstracts, instructional videos, and textbook chapters and has been an invited lecturer at multiple academic institutions on topics including urinary incontinence, continent diversions, and urethral reconstruction. His scientific work has been recognized with awards from the American College of Surgeons and the American Urological Association.
Dr. Grafstein is certified in both urology and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. The latter is a relatively new specialty and Dr. Grafstein is the only urologist with this certification at Mount Sinai Hospital.
