From this page you can navigate by the link tabs on the left to some of the latest innovative techniques as well as common urological conditions.  Most urological problems can be treated without the need for surgery.  If a condition is found that could best be treated by surgery or if surgery is an option, then there are a variety of minimally invasive techniques that can be used which involve much less pain and quicker recovery than traditional open surgery. 

State-of-the-art technology and new innovative techniques pervade all fields of urology.  There are currently minimally invasive options for most urological cancers (prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular), benign prostatic enlargement in men, pelvic floor disorders and incontinence in women, and kidney stones.  Dr. Hendricks strongly believes that not offering these treatments in a quality fashion would be a disservice to his patients.  He is one of few urologists around that has been trained and does all of them with regularity.  Most urologists do not offer these techniques.  Follow the link tabs for more information on each of these.

Dr. James Hendricks provides many services right in the office.  All in-patient care and surgical procedures that require an operating room are done at the Queen of the Valley Hospital, an outstanding facility that has consistently been recognized as a leader in health care in the Bay Area.  By providing all of his services in one office and a hospital right next door, Dr. Hendricks is always available for any problems a patient may have.
