Background

Dr. Shukla completed his residency in general surgery and urology at the University of South Florida College of Medicine and his fellowship in pediatric urology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Prior to returning to CHOP in 2012, Dr. Shukla served as Director of urology at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital and held associate professorships in urology and pediatrics at the University of Minnesota. Additionally, Dr. Shukla served as the Residency Program Director of the University of Minnesota Department of Urology.

At CHOP, Dr. Shukla is the Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery with a clinical and research interest in robotic-assisted laparoscopy, urinary reflux, hydronephrosis, urinary tract reconstruction, hypospadias and disorders of sexual differentiation. He is also the holder of the Minimally Invasive Surgery Endowed Chair in Pediatric Urology.

Dr. Shukla is active in developing pediatric urology as a discipline globally and serves as a physician lead for CHOP Global Medicine. In that role, Dr. Shukla provides consultation and strategic input in developing opportunities for partnerships and collaborations that serve to increase access to pediatric healthcare services in South Asia and the Gulf Region. Dr. Shukla leverages existing and ongoing global health experience in direct interactions with government entities, social entrepreneurs and physician leaders to transform and scale delivery in target regions.

Dr. Shukla’s passion for alleviating the global burden of surgical disease led him to organize and demonstrate at live surgical workshops throughout Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. Recognizing, however, that lasting change can only come with innovation through commitment, in 2009, Dr. Shukla initiated a surgical workshop at the Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad, India, that has become an international model of Indo-U.S. academic collaboration. This collaboration brings together a leading American children's hospital and India's most respected pediatric surgeons to address the vast surgical burden of complex urological anomalies in India. The annual Bladder Exstrophy-Epispadias consortium is in its 10th consecutive year. A strategy bringing together academic surgeons, local hospital systems, American disease specific support groups and research staff has led to the creation of an international Center of Excellence in Ahmedabad, that is now a referral destination for all of South Asia and Africa.
