• Dr. Dangle was born in Mumbai, India and obtained his medical degree MBBS from University of Mumbai. After completing his general surgery training, he successfully completed super-specialty training in urology with highest awards and Gold Medal from the prestigious University of Mumbai, India. He moved to the United States and did his urology residency training at The University of Chicago. He recently completed his pediatric urology fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

    Dr. Dangle will see pediatric patients at Children’s of Alabama. His practice focuses on robotic surgery, complex hypospadias, disorders of sex development, vesicoureteral reflux, myelomeningocele, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, renal stone disease andurinary reconstruction.
