Department of Urology

Matthew Ferroni, MD

  • Graduation year: 2017

Professionally, robotic surgery and Matt will be continuing his education after graduation with a one-year fellowship with Dr. Ronney Abaza at Ohio Health in Dublin, OH.  Personally, Matt is a devoted Philadelphia sports fan which doesn’t always bode well in Pittsburgh.  He enjoys craft beers, trying new restaurants around town, weekend road trips across the Midwest, and spending time with his new fiancé Kelly.

Service

Matt participated in an IVUmed service trip to Zambia, Africa as a PGY-4 resident with faculty members Dr. Schneck and Dr. Stephany.  The focus was on pediatric reconstructive urology with the aim of helping to educate local urologists and urology residents on operative skills.
