Laurence Baskin, MD graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelors of Science in Biophysics and attended medical school at UCLA. Dr. Baskin completely his urology training at UCSF followed by a two years of pediatric urology at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.  Since completing his fellowship in 1993, Baskin has been on the faculty at UCSF, practicing pediatric urology exclusively.

In 1997, Baskin was appointed chief of pediatric urology. Baskin is primary author on over 200 peer-reviewed articles, editor of the Handbook of Pediatric Urology, Hinman’s atlas of Pediatric Urologic Surgery and Assistant editor of the pediatric section, Journal Urology. Baskin is Principal Investigator on basic urologic research, clinical and mentoring grants funded by the National Institutes of Health.  He is presently head of the NIH study section on urologic disease.

Dr. Baskin is President of the Society of Pediatric Urology, Past President of the Society of Fetal Urology, Asian Pacific Association of Pediatric Urology, American Association of Pediatric Urology and Genito-Urinary Reconstructive Surgeons.  He is an active member of the American Urological Association, Society of Pediatric Urologic Surgeons and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Baskin is a past member of the American Board of Urology exam committee.

Dr. Baskin is recipient of numerous awards including the John Duckett Medal from the European Society of Pediatric Urology, 2007, and the 2012 AUA Foundation John W. Duckett, MD Pediatric Urology Research Excellence Award.

Dr. Baskin is especially proud to have participated in humanitarian pediatric urology surgical trips to San Pedro Sula, Honduras, China and Saigon, Vietnam.
