Dr. Jacek Mostwin is a professor of urology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. An internationally recognized expert in evaluating and treating all forms of urinary incontinence in men and women, Dr. Mostwin is among the Brady Urological Institute’s most experienced faculty members in performing pelvic and prostatic surgery. He serves as co-director of the Brady Institute’s Horizontal Strand in Ethics and Professionalism in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

His patients include women with adult-onset incontinence or complications from its treatment; men with incontinence after surgical or radiation treatment for prostate cancer; adults with congenital problems such as spina bifida and neurological diseases or injuries who have developed urinary incontinence; and adults who underwent reconstruction in childhood.

Dr. Mostwin uses his expertise in urodynamics, medications, collagen and other bulking agents, artificial urinary sphincters, and reconstructive procedures to help patients.

He has performed more than 2,600 radical prostatectomies, as well as thousands of specialized surgeries and procedures to treat conditions such as lower-tract damage and dysfunction, bladder cancer, bladder and urethral diverticula, vaginal fistulas, gynecological surgery-related bladder and ureteral injuries, and complicated pelvic masses close to the urinary tract.

Dr. Mostwin also evaluates and treats benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or “prostatic enlargement”) and its complications both medically and surgically.

His research focuses on the ethics and human dimensions of illness and medicine.

Dr. Mostwin authored 7 Keys to Treating Prostate Cancer and Managing Urinary Incontinence After Prostate Cancer Surgery and co-authored Choosing the Right Treatment for Prostate Cancer: Surgical Options and A Woman''s Guide to Urinary Incontinence—all Johns Hopkins Medicine publications.

He is certified by the American Board of Urology.
