Urology Times congratulates Howard M. Snyder, III, MD, who received the Urology Medal at the recently concluded Pediatric Urology Fall Congress in Las Vegas. The Urology Medal is given to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the field of pediatric urology.

Dr. Snyder, a long-standing member of the Urology Times Editorial Council, has worked at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for more than 3 decades, where he is currently director of surgical teaching. Dr. Snyder pioneered many of the reconstructive pediatric urologic procedures currently in use for neuropathic bladder. He worked with the late John Duckett, MD, to develop many of the one-stage approaches to hypospadias.

A graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Medical School, he also served for over 20 years in the Active Reserves and Army Medical Corps before retiring as colonel.

Dr. Snyder was honored with a Presidential Citation from the AUA earlier this year for outstanding contributions in reconstructive pediatric urology and the treatment of hypospadias, and he is a 2002 recipient of the St. Paul’s Medal, the British Association of Urological Surgeons’ highest award for contributions to urology by a non-British citizen.
