He is the co-founder and editor of Reviews in Urology. Some of Dr. Lepor’s landmark scientific contributions have focused on the identification of the autonomic intervention regulating male sexual function, development of the nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy, improving outcomes following radical retropubic prostatectomy, characterization of the prostate alpha1 adrenoceptor, and the medical and surgical management of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
