Teresa L. Danforth MD

Department of Urology

Assistant Professor of Urology

Specialty/Research Focus


Professional Summary:

My clinical practice includes general urology with a focus on female urology, male voiding dysfunction and neurogenic bladder. I am located at the Buffalo General Medical Center.

I trained in Buffalo for residency and then had an opportunity to do a fellowship under Dr. David Ginsberg at the University of Southern California. Our focus included male and female incontinence and voiding dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, recurrent urinary tract infections, fistulae and neurogenic bladder. My experience at USC as well as Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center allowed me to work with spinal cord injured patients, Spina Bifida, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsonā€˜s disease and other various neurologic disorders.

My research interests include long-term outcomes of neurogenic bladder management, the use of botulinum toxin in the management of neurogenic bladder and its effects on long-term treatment and outcomes of treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.
