Background

Dr. Aseem R. Shukla is the Endowed Chair and Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and Professor of Surgery in Urology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Shukla’s clinical and research interests include robot-assisted laparoscopy and the bladder exstrophy-epispadias complex, and also spans hypospadias, urinary reflux, hydronephrosis and complex urinary tract reconstruction. He is active in developing pediatric urology as a discipline globally.

He serves as CHOP’s Medical Director for Strategic Alliances. In that role, Dr. Shukla provides medical leadership in the planning, assessment and execution of health system relationships that enhance care at affiliate sites and when those children visit CHOP. He previously served as a physician lead for CHOP Global Medicine where he provided 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 routinely lectures and participates in surgical workshops and conferences throughout Asia, Africa, South America and Europe. Recognizing 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 brings together academic surgeons, local hospital systems, American disease specific support groups and research staff leading to the creation of an international Center of Excellence in Ahmedabad, that is now a referral destination for all of South Asia and Africa.

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 the Division of Urology in 2012, Dr. Shukla served as the first Director of Urology at the University of Minnesota Masonic 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.
