Peter J.

He completed his undergraduate studies at Cornell University, where he played competitive tennis. Dr. Stahl subsequently attended medical school and completed his urology residency at NewYork Presbyterian-Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Following residency, he completed two years of fellowship training in male reproductive medicine and microsurgery under the world-renowned Marc Goldstein, MD and Peter Schlegel, MD at the Center for Reproductive Medicine and Microsurgery at Weill Cornell. He received additional training during fellowship in male sexual medicine and penile prosthetic surgery from world-renowned expert John Mulhall, MD at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Dr. Stahl's practice is focused on the medical and surgical treatment of male subfertility, sexual dysfunction and low testosterone. He has special interest and training in minimally invasive and microsurgical techniques for surgical sperm retrieval in obstructive and nonobstructive azoospermia, microsurgical varicocelectomy, vasectomy, vasectomy reversal, implantation of testicular and penile prostheses, treatment of Peyronie's disease, and testosterone replacement therapy. He also treats patients with general urological issues including benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and urinary stone disease.

Dr. Stahl's academic interests include the genetics of male subfertility, development of new diagnostic tests to guide the treatment of subfertile men, fertility preservation for male patients with cancer, and the effectiveness of varicocelectomy for the treatment of testicular dysfunction. He was the recipient of the prestigious Research Scholar Award from the American Urological Association Foundation and has authored more than 20 articles and book chapters in the field of reproductive and sexual medicine. His research and discoveries have been published in leading journals including Fertility and Sterility, Journal of Urology, Urology, British Journal of Urology International, and Annual Review in Medicine.
