Dr. Scott R. Serels, of Westport, a Norwalk Hospital urologist, has recently become board-certified in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. This is a new board certification offered jointly by the American Urologic Society and the American Urogynecologic Society. Serels is among the first physicians in the country to become certified in the subspecialty.
Serels has received the Frank J. Scallon Award for Surgical Innovation. His pioneering efforts have specifically focused on treating stress urinary incontinence with "sling" procedures, as well as using Botox in the bladder to treat overactivity.
Serels pursued his urologic residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in New York. While in residency, he studied at both Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital for urologic oncology and at UCLA for urogynecology. He holds a bachelor's degree from Brandeis University, and a medical degree from New York University Medical School.
