Greenfield, MD, Director of Pediatric Urology, Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo and Clinical Professor of Urology, University at Buffalo School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences has been awarded an additional $1.8 million for the National Institute of Health/National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases sponsored RIVUR trial for children with vesicoureteral reflux.

Dr. Greenfield is principle investigator and Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo is a major site for this important national project. This brings the total award for RIVUR to $4.8 million and will ensure funding of the project through 2013.

Total NIH funding to the Department of Pediatric Urology is now just over $5 million, which includes the recent award for CUTIE (Careful Urinary Tract Infection Evaluation)—an observational clinical trial for children with a history and urinary infection and no underlying structural urologic abnormalities.

Dr. Greenfield is currently serving as President of the Society for Pediatric Urology. He has published over 100 articles and book chapters. The Department of Pediatric Urology is a major regional referral center.

Pediatric Urology is the diagnosis and treatment of congenital and acquired urological conditions and diseases in children. Pediatric urologists treat conditions of the male reproductive tract and the male and female urinary tracts. There is an urodynamic laboratory for the investigation of complex voiding disorders and neurogenic bladder. Biofeedback therapy is also available, when appropriate, for the treatment of voiding dysfunction.
