About the Doctor / Professional

I specialize in robotic surgery for kidney cancer, prostate cancer, adrenal tumors, testis cancer, penile cancer and bladder cancer. I also perform robotic surgery for blockages of the ureter, including robotic pyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction obstruction and robotic ureteroplasty or ureteral reimplant for ureteral strictures.

Care Philosophy:

I strive to provide exceptional care to all of my patients efficiently, effectively, and compassionately. I feel that the patient should always come first. I provide my patients with accurate information about their condition to help them make goals.

Biographical Statement:

Dr. Rogers has trained at some of the top medical centers in the country and has learned alongside the pioneers of these techniques. He attended Stanford University School of Medicine and received his M.D. degree. He completed his urology residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital followed by a urologic oncology fellowship in prostate and kidney cancer surgery at the National Cancer Institute.

Dr. Rogers performs both robotic and laparoscopic surgery to remove kidney tumors. Whenever possible, he uses robotic assistance to remove the tumor while saving the rest of the normal kidney in order to preserve kidney function. He also performs open surgery for kidney tumors that are not amenable to a minimally invasive approach. He also offers cryoablation for small kidney tumors in patients who are not candidates for surgical removal.

Research Interests:

His research focus is on improving robotic surgical techniques for kidney cancer and the identification and utilization of biomarkers and genes for the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of kidney and prostate cancer.
