Laura Leddy, MD

About Me

I am a fellowship-trained urologic and reconstructive surgeon with a primary focus on urinary tract reconstruction after cancer therapy. My patients include men with urethral stricture, urinary incontinence, rectourethral fistula, erectile dysfunction, and voiding dysfunction after radiation or surgical treatment for prostate cancer. I also work with both men and women who need bladder reconstruction or therapy for urinary incontinence and voiding dysfunction after radiation or radical surgery for pelvic malignancies (gynecologic, rectal, and bladder).

My research interests include the outcomes of reconstructive surgery after cancer therapy and the autonomic innervation of the lower urinary tract. My clinical interest is in the restoration of urinary and sexual function after cancer therapy. I believe in discussing all the options with my patients in order to find the solution that suits each person’s unique goals and lifestyle.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
