Innovation: Peds: SOCKS

Surgical Outcomes for Kids Center (SOCKS)

  • A major contributor to our clinical outcomes and research success is the SOCKS (Surgical Outcomes for Kids) Center under the direction of Dr. Chevis Shannon.  Our faculty, fellows and residents collaborate with SOCKS and Dr. Shannon’s team to create clinical projects assessing outcomes in our patients.
  • We present these studies at national meetings and publish our findings in peer-reviewed journals. SOCKS is instrumental in helping our urology team get IRB approval, organize data, implement pathways, and perform statistical analysis. To date, we have collaborated on 59 different projects.
