Dr. Sebesta on the role of social determinants of health in urology

“The social needs aren't medical conditions that can be alleviated in a doctor's office, and they shouldn't be medicalized or viewed in that way,” says Elisabeth M. Sebesta, MD.

In this episode, Urology Times® Assistant Editor Janelle Hart spoke with Elisabeth M. Sebesta, MD, about the study, “Patients with urologic conditions are more likely to have unmet social needs,” which was given at the Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogenital Reconstruction 2022 Winter Meeting. Sebesta is a female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery fellow in the department of urology at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
