Research Interests

Dr. Bird's clinical interests are in minimally invasive surgical therapies for renal cancer and urinary stone disease.

His research focuses on the relative effectiveness of endourologic procedures for urinary lithiasis, new surgical technologies for treatment of renal cell carcinoma, and basic science research relating to both diagnosis and prognostication for renal cell carcinoma.
