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
