Tallwood Urology & Kidney Institute Team

A World-Class, Interdisciplinary Team of Sub-Specialists

Unlike a general urology program, Tallwood physicians are fellowship trained sub-specialists, so you get the best of the best. You get access to doctors who sub-specialize in your particular urology or kidney problems, and you have a complete care team that works together across any disciplines you need.

The interdisciplinary team approach to patient care at the Tallwood Institute sets us apart from other urology and kidney care services in the area.

Our fellowship trained urologists cover specialty areas including: General Urology, Men’s Health & Sexual Function, Pelvic Health & Incontinence, Chronic Kidney Disease, Kidney Stones, Urogynecology and Urologic Cancer, along with a wide range of conditions and treatments including:


Tallwood Urology and Kidney Institute Leadership

Steven J. Shichman, MDSteven J. Shichman, MD, Medical Director, Hartford HealthCare Tallwood Urology and Kidney Institute

Physician-in-Chief, Hartford HealthCare Tallwood Urology & Kidney Institute

A board-certified urologist, Dr. Shichman specializes in robotic surgery, renal cancer and adrenal disorders. Following his education and work experience as a chemical engineer, Dr. Shichman went on to complete both his medical degree and his General Surgery and Urology residency at the University of Connecticut. Dr. Shichman pursued advanced training at New York Hospital and Cornell Medical Center where he completed his fellowship in Laparoscopy and Minimally Invasive Surgery.

Dr. Shichman is a pioneer in urologic minimally invasive surgery and is recognized internationally as a leader in the field. He is among the country’s most experienced surgeons in laparoscopic adrenalectomy, laparoscopic and robotic partial nephrectomy. As a course director for the American Urological Association postgraduate courses from 1998 to 2013, he taught laparoscopic techniques to over 1,200 urologists from around the world. Dr. Shichman has been recognized as one of Connecticut’s Top Doctors in urology by Connecticut Magazine and Hartford Magazine. Over the past twenty-five years, Dr. Shichman has been instrumental in advancing Hartford HealthCare’s international reputation for innovation in laparoscopic and robotic urologic surgery. Under his leadership, Hartford HealthCare has hosted numerous post-graduate courses in minimally invasive surgery, including national symposiums on robotic urologic surgery.

Dr. Shichman is also the Executive Director of Hartford Hospital’s Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation which is recognized as one of the largest and most comprehensive medical simulation training complexes in the United States.

Jan Ruderman, Director, Hartford HealthCare Tallwood Urology and Kidney InstituteJan Ruderman

Vice President, Hartford HealthCare Tallwood Urology & Kidney Institute

In her role as vice president of Hartford HealthCare’s Tallwood Urology and Kidney Institute, Jan is responsible for engaging stakeholders from across Hartford HealthCare’s continuum of care to fulfill our vision of being nationally respected for excellence in patient care and most trusted for personalized coordinated care. She oversees and drives strategic initiatives of the Tallwood Urology and Kidney Institute to improve quality, reduce cost and ineffiencies and enhance the patient experience.

Jan was an architect in the development of our institute model, which redesigned our healthcare delivery model to better coordinate care with evidence based, system wide standards of care. Tallwood Urology & Kidney Institute is one of six Hartford HealthCare institutes which organizes care around diseases and patient needs, rather than siloed departments seen in traditional care delivery models.

Jan has a master’s degree in business administration with a focus on healthcare and a bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy from Tufts University. During her 20-plus years at Hartford HealthCare, she has held a variety of leadership roles in operations, quality and process improvement.
