  • Principal Investigator: Douglas S. Scherr, M.D.

  • Sample Size: N=300

  • Study Population: Patients undergoing major urological surgery with Dr. Scherr and spending at least one night in the hospital

  • Study Duration: Intervention is 2 weeks long and patients are tracked for a total of 90 days post-discharge to assess readmission rates
